Bowhunting Balearic Boc In Majorca
High in the Balearean mountains of Majorca, Ian Harford is on the hunt for one of the most favoured species on the island…Boc!
Wearing his Deerhunter Avanti outfit in Realtree Xtra Green, Ian tackles the challenging mountainous terrain in search of the elusive species that are indigenous to the Balearean Island. Difficult to stalk, they live high in the mountainous rocky spots, which can make things extremely challenging for even the most experienced hunter.
When hunting with a bow, it’s essential to check your equipment upon arrival.

Steve and I discuss tactics and plan our approach.
Stealth is essential if you hope to get in range of your quarry and the Deerhunter Avanti set is the perfect suit for this type of hunt.
The Balearean Boc are smart, alert and like to jump there way across the rocky terrain.
The heat at these temperatures can be dangerous. Scheduled rest stops are essential to stay hydrated, they also offer a quick opportunity for glassing.
The scenery is stunning and the terrain tough.
The Deerhunter Avanti allows excellent movability, essential to steady your movement and take things slow once you’re up close to the herd.
A tough day of stalking in the blistering heat didn’t prove successful for me…
However, all was not lost…
Steve still had a chance with his rifle as we made the final approach over the hill.
The perfect opportunity after a long day presented itself.
