Re: Whoooaahhh-- got a CO Goat permit
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!!

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
