Re: Pack Goats

These alpine breeds are very long legged and very strong. Ive heard of some breeders playing around with some boer alpine crosses, but for the most part packers steer clear of boers, nubians, angoras, and of course all the mini breeds. As big and strong as my alpines are, I still prefer my oberhaslis, they are a little smaller in stature, but make up for it in temperment and agility.

Re: Pack Goats

I just sent you a PM, Im sorry you didnt get my response a couple weeks ago, I had tried to send it to the email address you had given me, but I guess it didnt go through. I am new to this forum thing, so if you dont get my PM tonigt, just let me know.

PS, I just got back from a trip with several of my goats. I took a local guy who does a television show here in Eastern Idaho called Jared Scott Outdoors. He had never hunted around goats and I offered to take him out. There were only a couple areas open until Oct 31st, so we picked one over in the Sawtooths. We ended up in some really prime mule deer country, and made it back in about 4 miles. We only had 2 days and 1 night before the end of our hunt, but we ended up seeing nearly a dozen bucks and 30 or 40 does. One of the bucks was a real nice shooter, but we couldnt ever quite get a good shot on him. Jared and I both ended up getting our bucks, and both were mature deer, his a nice little five by three and mine a 4x4. Neither were trophys Im sure by your standards, but considering the limited time we had, and that neither of us are usually able to put much time into deer hunting (we are both archery elk hunters at heart) we felt we did okay, and they were both certainly larger than the young 4points and 2points all my other hunting buddies settled for this year. We took 5 goats with us, which packed all of our camping/hunting gear and hauled out the two boned out deer. We only had to put about 35-40 lbs on each of the goats, so we could have done it with four if necessary. There will be an episode about our excursion either this coming sunday night (news Channel 6, 10:30 PM) or next sunday I believe.

Re: Pack Goats


Way to go!

Jared is a good guy.

Tape the show or whatever needs to be done w/Jared to be able to distribute the footage .....would be really sweet if it can be brought about.

Can't get that show in SLC
