Switzerland is a small country partly in the Alps in central Europe, with typical mountain animals, such as Alpine Ibex and Alpine Chamois. In order to obtain a hunting license in Switzerland is very complicated, so that the procedure has to start at least a year before the hunt. Foreigners can obtain the license for Ibex and Chamois hunt through a process of bidding. To get the license each hunter has to send, one year before the hunt, two photographs, a copy of a valid passport and USD 2.000 for Alpine Ibex and USD 1.000 for Alpine Chamois that will be revolved in case the license is not obtained.

The hunt in Switzerland is excellently organized, the local guides know very well the whereabouts of the animals and will take the hunter only on specimens that have been previously identified, that are very old and have very large trophies. Each hunter has the right to hunt for two days in the dates decided by the local government. The use of motor vehicles is forbidden and hunting can be done only by stalking. A discrete physical condition is necessary. Lodging and meals are provided in small hotels in areas that are closest to the one for which the license is given.
