The Best Time to Hunt for Kri Kri Ibex in Greece

Greece is a beautiful country with a lot to offer tourists and hunters alike. When it comes to hunting, one of the most popular animals to hunt in Greece is the Kri Kri ibex. These majestic creatures can be found roaming the mountains and forests of Atalanty and Sapientza islans, and they provide a challenging yet rewarding hunting experience.
If you’re thinking about going on a Kri Kri ibex hunt in Greece, you’ll need to pay close attention to the weather. The best time to hunt for Kri Kri ibex in Greece is during the months of October, November and December. However, the weather during these months can be very unpredictable.
October Weather
The weather during October could be very hot and dry. If it is hot and dry, the ibexes will be hiding in the dense bush. This makes it difficult to spot them, let alone get a clean shot. However, if you’re patient and persistent, you may be able to bag yourself a Kri Kri ibex during this month.
November Weather
The first two weeks of November usually have hot and dry weather or a lot of bad days with rain and storms. This can make hunting difficult as you won’t be able to sail on a raw sea or risk getting caught in a storm. However, if the weather cooperates, this can be an excellent time to go hunting for amazing Kri Kri ibex.
December Weather
December is typically one of the best months for hunting Kri Kri ibex in Greece. The weather is usually milder than it is in October or November, making it easier to spot the ibexes. Plus, there are typically less hunters out during this time so you’ll have a better chance of bagging your trophy.
Conclusion: If you’re planning on going hunting for Kri Kri ibex in Greece, pay close attention to the weather forecast. The best time to hunt for them is during the months of October, November and December. However, the weather during these months can be very unpredictable so you’ll need to be prepared for anything. With a little bit of luck, you’ll have a successful hunt and come home with a trophy that you’ll cherish for years to come.

Booking an outfitter

An excellent outfitter could make hunting for Kri Kri ibex in Greece a wonderful experience! As you may already know, there are always traps and hidden terms on the path to paradise. Here are some helpful tips for your research.
According to the Bern Convention, hunting and trading of Kri Kri ibex is forbidden. Because these animals are rare and endangered, the Greek government controls their hunting. Hunting is only permitted on Sapientza and Atalanty islands in order to prevent overpopulation. Do not be misled into hunting Kri Kri ibex outside of the designated areas in Greece. An international dispute has already begun regarding the export and trade of animals prohibited by the Berne Convention.
It is also worth noting that you should ensure that the company you choose is a registered tour agent in Greece before you book your trip. Here is a list of all the documents that the company should provide for you.

 It is good idea also to get a detailed information for the documents that he will provide for you.  Here is the list of all needed papers that he must arrange for you.

  • General hunting license for Greece is mandatory to hunt Kri Kri anywhere (Sapientza or Atalanty).
  • Special hunting license for the area where you will hunt
  • Daily permits for the dates your trip is planned. There should be 1 per day.
  • Insurance
  • Invoice for harvested game /after the hunt/ according the local forestry office tax list.
  • Daily tickets for boat trip to/from the island
  • Export papers should be for Capra Aegagrus Cretica – Kri Kri ibex (Not for Capra aegagrus – feral goat)

    Important notice: All documents should be on your name. In case some of the documents are on the name of the outfitter then you are not legal to hunt, and you are not paying the government taxes. 


Once you’ve booked the right trusted outfitter, you must send him all the necessary documents for his work so that he can issue documents for you.

  • Hunting license /ticket from your national hunting organization valid for the hunting season during which the hunt will take place.
  • Firearm license or gun license for handling, transporting, or owning a rifle or handgun for EU (could be the EU rifle passport) for North America (an official note from police station).
  • You can import your own shotgun in Greece only if you are EU citizen and you obtain EU rifle passport. Usually all outfits offer a hired shotgun included in the price
  • One picture as for the passport (it is needed for the hunting license)
  • POA – Power Of Attorney with signature on the name of your legal representative in Greece. Usually this person is a lawyer who will represent you before the Greek authorities for the issuance of all the necessary documents. A word of advice – don’t leave this task for the last as Greek lawyers are not the fastest.
  • It is imperative that you pay your taxes and licenses on time. If the entire amount is not paid 60 days before the hunt, your reservations will be forfeited.
