After harvesting a 3 year old cow elk last year I'm confident that 4 good goats can pack out about any size bull.
60 or so pounds of coyote wasn't a problem for an out of shape over weight 190 pound goat. It was the first load he ever packed.
They are pretty cheap keepers.
Well I am set on the IQ department!
The farm I was at the other day had Alpine, Toggenburg, Saanen, Nubian, and maybe one other kind.
Which of any of those kinds would be a good breed for pack goats? I thought I read on this thread someone said stay away from lop eared ones, which the nubian are.
The nubian have a nice color, and so do the Toggenburg in relation to being pretty close to a natural wild animal color, which maybe doesn't make any difference for hunting?
