Persian ibex, often referred to as Bezoar ibex were imported from Iran and released in 1970 on the isolated Florida (flo-rida) Mountains of southern New Mexico. Before their introduction to the United States, the hunting of such ibex was only available in Turkey and Iran. Numbers quickly soared with the first hunt taking place in 1974. Today over 400 animals roam the Floridas. Often referred to as “The Rock” the Floridas offer both a challenging, and yet rewarding hunting experience. This rugged landscape will test any hunter’s physical limitations as well as mental stamina.
Hunters can expect to glass from below until a suitable billy is found, at which time a stalk can be planned and executed. Shot distance can vary greatly depending on where the ibex are found. Hunters should be prepared to shoot 400 yards. Having an experienced guide who knows the access routes across the mountain is crucial and will save miles of tough walking. This knowledge will absolutely make for a more successful and enjoyable hunting experience.
