Kri-kri ibex is likely among the rarest of the Capra trophies because of the limited opportunity, and therefore is of interest to aficionados looking to complete a collection. Continuing subscribers will recall our 2009 update on the hunting opportunities for this sub-species (see Article ID 2262). The information in that story still accurately reflects the basics: weather and sea conditions can cost you hunting days, the hunting hours are restricted to about 9 am to 3 pm, only borrowed shot guns with slugs are allowed, and the island is very brushy, requiring hunters to ambush ibex on trails or from a vantage point at shorter distances than a rifle would allow.
