I just opened a brand-new book to a random page.
The best description of medieval ibex-hunting is given, again, by Gaston Phoebus. He obviously hunted ibex himself, but only faute de mieux, and he of course was a fanatic; there is no indication that many other persons of his social level did the same, and the creature was in any case unavailable in most areas, including the civilized lowlands of England and northern France.
I defy you to read that aloud with a straight face.
