Thread: First Alpine Steinbock

  1. #1

    First Alpine Steinbock

    Evening all. just returned from Stanton in the Arlberg. Happy to report that I had a very successful stalk for a Steinbock and managed a Marmelot as well. The stalk and shot were relatively simple but but the 7 hour hike to the hut was a killer! Thought I was reasonably fit, but legs are feeling the strain from hawking the guts of 15kg on my back!

    Will post a full report in the next few days. Here are a couple of photos.

    Cracking something I'd love to do but unfortunately the lungs are nowhere near up to that sort of hiking .
    ps neither the bank balance I fear .

    Should also mention......the beast eventually selected was not the biggest but was one of the oldest, 11 years old, he also had lost his left eye. It was a no brainer......cull the injured animal! They reckon he will make gold medal. Couple of facts....range was 100m, cal was 300WinMag and he was shot at an altitude of 2700ms

    I have just added some videos to Youtube of the stalk, the preparation and of course the shot. Here they are in order!

    He looks like an Old Warrior.
    In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.
