Re: Pack Goats

Another trek out back w/the kids.

Let me say right off...I wish I would have discovered this way sooner.

I can't recall a more pleasant stoll though the sage brush, fences and russian olives.

Came up with an innovative idea for crossing fences. Fences out here are sloppy to say the least. The posts were planted probably a century ago along w/the wire. Minimum effort is expended keeping them maintained.

I constantly carry an expandable camera monopod. Its used as a walking stick, at times, and a steady rest for binos and range finder. There is a leather covered aluminum plate mounted on top. It works very well. (one of my better ideas)

The monopod is now a fence crossing gizmo. The larger the space between fence posts the better it works.

Here's the gizmo installed with the first goat coming through.



Once the first goat goes through the second or rest of 'em are a natural.


WE crossed through a space in a gate and discovered a way to healthy stand of Canadian Thistle. I wacked a bunch of the stuff with the machete. The goats just hung out.


Got tired of that and walked about a hundred yards and saw a sight that changed my attitude regarding hunting yotes in the summer.

What I thought was 6 deer were flat out running through tall grass 250 or so yards away. The ran from my left to right into a large stand of russian olive trees.

Why were they running so hard a 7:45 in the morning? I checked the wind and headed in a direction that could possibly result in a sighting. I went maybe 50 yards and here comes doe with two fawn running belly to the ground. Very close behind the second fawn was one hell of a large yote. Immediately came another coyote and doe. This doe was doing the stooping thing giving me a good look at her. Beautiful brown mule deer.

This second yote spotted me getting my binos into action and turned back. Then stopped. I moved to the right from behind a tree to get a better look. It stopped a gain and turned towards me. Strange looking yote. Taller than what I'm used to. The tall grass would nearly hide what I'm used to seeing. The first yote, on the tail of the deer, looked to be nearly as large as the deer. The one that stopped was certainly an unusual collar pattern. Plus being taller than the grass, I'm wondering what the heck we have here. I'm certainly gonna find out.

I'm thinking a bleating goat would be a great decoy and caller.

Here's why goats are the slowest going of all the pack animals. When they spy a delectable morsel they are all over it. However, they quick lolly gaggin' when I get a certain distance ahead of them or get out of their sight.
