Simon K. Barr draws a tag to hunt a mature male Alpine ibex in the Valais Canton area of the Swiss Alps. A tag for one of these remarkable creatures is a once-in-a-lifetime chance. Many hunters enter the state-run lottery and wait for over 10 years before being rewarded. Each year, some 200 ibex are hunted in the French-speaking region, just 30 of which are mature males.
