High up in the Slovenian mountains, we're hunting Alpine Chamois.

This stunning antelope species provides some of the most challenging hunting in Europe in the most magnificent environments.

Patience and determination are essential if we're to be successful. Deerhunter provides us with the best clothing for hunting, i am wearing the Montana 2.G for extreme weathers.

As we head up into the Slovenian Alps the slopes become steeper and more daunting.

The observation tower is made entirely from materials sourced from the forest and delivers a panoramic view of the surrounding mountain. 

These mountains produce some of the worlds biggest chamois trophies - but you need to work hard for the opportunity.

Breaks between climbs to glass the surrounding slopes are a very welcome relief from the physical exertion.

Chamois are very small animals and blend perfectly against the rocky environment. You need to take your time to explore every inch of the mountain. 

You need a simple, rugged and reliable rifle, something that is a rock solid hunting tool and perfect for these conditions.

An old fence post makes a welcome rest as I line up the chamois some 300 yards up the mountain. For such a small animal, a solid shooting rest is highly advisable. 

Pure concentration and controlled breathing are needed to ensure the perfect shot.

Looking back where we’ve come from, you really begin to feel a sense of achievement.

The beautiful chamois was well worth the effort and the surroundings were simply magnificent. 

Deerhunter membranes had me covered for everything mother nature threw at us!
