SUMMARY REMARKS
Problems of Hunt: None - should have stayed longer!
Highlights of Hunt: Great way to end our 30th anniversary trip to Spain! The 16th Century Spanish Villa and overall setting was fantastic. Gonzalo and his staff were great in every way from the meals (too much food), drinks (great wines), and hospitality. Witnessing the red deer roar with my wife was an unexpected benefit -will never forget it. Hunting was great and the staff was very patient with my decision to pass on multiple animals!
Equipment Recommendations: Good set of binoculars for sure. I used Gonzalo's rifle - nice set up! Might want to touch up on your Spanish as things can get exciting with his Spanish speaking game manager along.
Would You Recommend This Hunt to a Friend? yes
Why? The outfitter and overall venue made it a real joy to hunt in Spain with my wife. She would recommend this hunt as well. I hope to return for an Ibex hunt with Gonzalo while still in good shape.

ADDITIONAL HUNTER COMMENTS AND/OR OUTFITTER/BOOKING AGENT REBUTTAL
Meeting and hunting with Gonzalo was a great pleasure. This was our first trip to Spain and obviously first time hunting there. He went out of his way to educate us on the tradition and history of the local area and hunting - great learning experience for us. His staff was excellent - really good people. We enjoyed the social time together and appreciated him stopping in Toledo for some tourism and then setting us up for a fun evening in Madrid prior to flying home. He provided everything and more than was expected. Hope to hunt together again!

While by no means a difficult hunt, there is enough stalking and crawling around that it feels like a real hunt. Guides and all other folks involved were great.
