1st 2012 goat

Well at least it took more than 10 minuts and the shot was longer than 40 yards this year
Took a couple hours looking over a lot of goats only to find that they is all about the same size in my first goat area. Spotted this guy 615 yards peaking around the hill at us, left my two partners there and dropped off the hill we where on to get a better look. When I got there a dozen does took off to the right followed by a group of small bucks. Where did the big guy go? Looked back at my pards and they where pointing left......Left? all the other goats took off to the right but there he was standing 250 yards away loookig right at me. I hit the dirt with the bipods down and safty off but put the safty back on when the scope revieled he was just an avarage joe.
Then it happened!!! He took off and just like a dog after a running cat the saftey came back off=bang!! dropped him right there =right now! Dangit now I gotta goat to butcher and 3 weeks before my other goat tag is good
Just like Rodney "I got no willpower" maybe one of these years a big goat will apear first

You are just an uncontrolled killing machine! Nice going.

Restraint is often the toughest part of Antelope for me as well.

Re: 1st 2012 goat

Dont know about a killing machine but am very impatient thats for sure! Kinda funny as my hunting partner can eat tag soup and it dont bother him at all but for me an unfilled tag is a lost opertunity!

Next goat tag is for 21 starting the 15th. Probably heading over twards Lusk next weekend for a little mulie hunting.
I actually got this goat last friday, thats Farris MT in the background.



Been busy trying to find Recoil a monster out there.......Lots of good goats but have yet to find a dandy. Not very often you see Canadian geese,pelicans,seagulls and crayfish claws while your goat hunting??
We did however have this guy walk out within 250 yards, Recoil made a great offhand shot! check out the last clip @ the bottom of the page
