As it turns out I didn't get rid of them. The fella called this morning and backed out.

Reason to get rid of them is convenience only. Things like have to feed them alfalfa and the donk grass is is spot of bother.

I was going to replace them with another mammoth john or jenny which would pack as much or a little more than 3 goats.

I picked up a 2 horse trailer today that has the divider removed and the two rear doors replaced with a single door. Pretty much a stock trailer. I'll shove the jack and goats in and take off.

I have the complete goat packing setup plus saddle panniers for the jack so I won't have to pack anything and hike pretty light.

I'll be heading out next week to ride a cattle range for a week and test things out. From then on it's scouting trips in prep for archery elk and wolf. My son in law is the archer and I pack the rifles.

If I can see a wolf in the scope and get a range I'm gonna take the shot.

Re: Pack Goats

I admit that I have not read all 34 previous pages to this thread, so I apologize in advance if this question has already been addressed.

How do the goats behave when there is gun fire?

Depending on proximity to the muzzle and direction of fire reactions range from:

- No reaction
- Drop head and shake ears and walk a few steps
- Become alert and attempt to determine where "that" came from.
- Never had one run

Had one goat that when I announced "Fire in the Hole" he'd head for the shed and stick his head out the door.

The larger the rifle the larger the reaction. The 375 Allen Mag.

If in the mountains and doing long range shooting, I quietly announce "fire in the hole" and they move a few feet away if they are too close.

I've had them sniffing the scope when the shot went off and not much happened. That was when they were younger and dumber.

They train quite easily, as long as you don't try to force the issue and use a little patience.
