Re: Pack Goats

Game retrieval/wasting laws in Idaho, as of last year, only require a hunter to take out the meat from the four quarters, the back straps, and tenderloins. Neck, ribs, organs, etc are not required for harvest. I dont know what other states require. Hunters are not required to take out meat from Bears.

    Re: Pack Goats

    Hey guys, I love the goats. Does anyone know of any rentals in Colorado. I would be interested in some flyfishing trips in the summer and archery hunt in the fall. I don't have the land to own them, otherwise I would. Thanks

    I've heard that domestic goats and sheep can carry and spread disease to wild sheep and goats.Couldn't this threat be eliminated by vaccinating you're stock before you take them into the back country ?

    Cross contamination with pack goats is not an issue. When properly maintained pack goats or any goat for that matter, including those used for weed eating, are not a problem to wild species.

    There may be issues with domestic sheep herds in not properly cared for.

    No need for a pack goat rental in Colorado Springs. My wife got a job in Helena, Mt. and we are moving in Jan. I can't wait! I am originally from north Idaho, so it will be close to my dad's place. If anyone knows of goat rental in that area, any help would be apreciated. Thanks

    I've had the pleasure of using pack goats on several trips. Have also used horses, mules and llamas a fair bit. Prefer the goats! What a joy. and even with only 50# per goat, 3-5 goats makes a hell of a nice addition!!!
