    This thing is a monster! Killed in the Florida Mountains in Demog, NM. I am sure the guy was pleased!

    I didn't draw it either but wish I could too! That is just a monster of an Ibex though.

    Superb animal. Much nicer hide than their winter coat.
    Shame about the gut shot.:rolleyes:

    Yea...I noticed that too haha. I bet the guy had just a tad of buck fever and I am for certain that he was breathing pretty dang hard!

    Just a steep angle, I'm sure the bullet either entered or exited the opposite shoulder!:rolleyes:

    Almost looks prehistoric! Awesome Ibex!

    I've had my share of those quartering away shots. :D

    about the wound, muzzleloader shot...that is the entry, the exit was on the opposite shoulder. He was quartering away. So the projectile traversed the entire animal.

    I see them quite a bit but have only seen them from a long ways off since they usually stay up high. Its kinda sweet to see that caliber of Ibex up close.

    The only area they are located in is the Florida Mountains, I have seen them off the Florida mountains making their way to the Tres Hermanas mountains but it is very rare. As far as outfitters I can't help you out there. If you draw a tag start working out the Floridas are brutal.

    Thanks for the info. I definitely would like to add one to my collection.
    Will start researching outfitters now.
