The agile and graceful chamois
Last updated on January 16, 2017
The alpine antelope of the Southern Alps, the agile and graceful chamois was originally from Europe and is one of the more challenging of New Zealand's trophies to hunt successfully.
They are the largest sub species of chamois, with some of the most attractive markings of all our game animals, with equal size to that of a small border collie dog. Living in isolated family groups away from most other animals, the chamois is extremely agile with nimble feet and keen 10x eyesight…making for a truly challenging hunt and an extremely rewarding experience for those that love mountain hunting.
Chamois bucks start their rut early-May to mid-June, which is the prime hunting when the solitary Bucks will come into the resident nannies.
