Thread: European Grand Slam of all "WILD" hoofed game.

  1. #1

    European Grand Slam of all "WILD" hoofed game.

    To coin an American saying, what would be considered to be a European Grand Slam of all the "WILD" hoofed game?

    This is the list as I would envisage. Some questionable species on the list, but I have included nonetheless.

    I am sure I will have missed some other species off the list, please add to the post for any I have not included.


    • Muntjac
    • Chinese Water Deer
    • Roe Deer
    • Fallow Deer
    • Sika Deer
    • Red Deer
    • Wild Goat
    • Soay Sheep
    • Wild boar
    • Mouflon
    • Chamois
    • Beceite Ibex
    • Gredos Ibex
    • South Eastern Ibex
    • Rhonda Ibex
    • Aoudad Sheep
    • Balearian boc
    • Alpine Ibex
    • Bezoar Ibex
    • Moose
    • Whitetail deer
    • Reindeer/Caribou
    • European bison/Wisent
    • Kri Kri Ibex


    My next question is, has anyone shot all of them? Or know anyone that has?

    I up to 9 of the 24 I have listed, hopefully to be adding the 10th in February!!

    Ah OK, different animal. I was thinking of the Cretan feral goat: Kri-kri - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Some of them are questionable as different species.

    Some say the Beceite and Gredos Ibex have pretty much the same genetics, same goes for the Rhonda and South Eastern, just regional differences in horn shape. There are many outfitters that sell them as separate species.

    They are certainly listed as different sub species on the Wild Sheep website.

    In fairness, looking at the photos of the Cretan feral goat they do seem to strike a remarkable resemblance to the kri kri ibex.

    How about all the chamois?
    Pyrenean chamois - Spain and France
    Cantabrian chamois - Spain
    Alpine chamois - Alps
    Carpathian chamois - Romania
    Balkan chamois - Balkans
    Caucasian chamois - Russia, Georgia and Azerbaijan
    Anatolian chamois - Turkey (technically in Asia?)
    Low Tatra (hybrid) chamois - Slovakia
    Chartreuse Chamois - France

    and if the Caucasus counts as the border between Europe and Asia then there are the various Tur as well; possibly the konya and armenian mouflon too
