Program Information

Cantabrian chamois is the smaller of all chamois sub species. Similar to the Pyrenean chamois, it´s exclusive of the Cantrabrian range. The fur colors are more beautiful than the other sub-species, combining white, orange-brown, dark-brown and black. Smart and elegant, it lives in altitudes from 1.600 to 2500mt. Located in the northwest  of Spain, Cantabrian range is one of the most amazing hunting areas of our country where  it´s possible to spot, in the same biotope, wolves, bears, ibex, red stags, roe deers, wild boars and chamois.

After 15 years chasing chamois around the world and harvesting more than 50 chammys per year including all sub species, Pyrenean Outfitters is the most specialized company in rupricapras. We run more than 35,000 hectares in exclusive and private areas near Cantabrian National Reserves in Leon province. In addition, our local guides know all places, best areas, and they will have the best trophies spotted when you start to hunt.

The hunting area combines alpine biotope, with grass slopes and rocky mountains, and some lower forest areas. The hunting is done by stalking, a good physical condition is required, but we have adapted territories to all kind of hunters. We have also exclusive areas for bowhunters.
