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.

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 Deerhunter Avanti allows excellent movability, essential to steady your movement and take things slow once you’re up close to the herd.
