Whoooaahhh-- got a CO Goat permit

Got it in the mail about a week ago. Took a 3/4 X 7/8ths curl CO Bighorn 2 years ago (www.perry-systems.com -- hunter testimonial)-- now this. I'll be using a new Savage Striker handgun in whatever factory WSM they'll send me. The gun will become a custom switch-barrel rig in the factory WSM, and a 17" Broughton barrel in .243 WSSM for LR coyotes later in the year.

    Good for you Coyote!!!!! We did not draw our sheep tags,again nor moose. We did get bull tags for 61. And of course deer tags for northwestern Co. If we are lucky we'll get speedgoats and deer for Wy. next month. Good luck on your goat hunt!!

    Congratulation sscoyote. I killed my billy in 1999 in 13. I helped a fried kill a nice billy there last year, but it lost an inch or more when it tumbled a thousand feet or so. What season did you apply for?

    Taos,
    What season will you be in 61? I have a buck tag for third season.

    Quiet hunter,

    If your goat only lost around 1" of horn and fell 1000 feet consider yourself as VERY blessed!!! Goats horns break extreemly easily. I have known guys that have shot them and rolled over once and broke the horn in 1/2 and some have broke off all together. There was a nonresident alien that came to AK 6 times and paid MAJOR $$$$$ to get a good goat. He shot 6 goats, and he watched 5 goats break their horns and the last one he shot he finnaly got perfect horns.

    sscyote, congradulations on your goat permit. My only advice is to hit em good and hit em hard. Goats, unlike wild sheep DO NOT give up as easy. They are very very tough.

    I still have yet to see if I am awarded any permits. Applications include Az mule deer (Arizona strip) and Az elk and Ak elk.

    PS, congrats on your big horn!! I am a sheepaholic!!
