First goat of 09

Alright folks, opening weekend in SD and I scored big for my area. Goats in Bennett Co South Dakota don't get much bigger than this. Haven't measured it and I am not going to try and estimate but the hunt was very memorable.
Took two shots at 683m with 6mm 75gr Vmax ammo in the AR.243WSSM with Gemtech HVT suppressor. First shot was high, just above the spine and at the very front of the back straps. 2nd shot was right on the money, through the left shoulder blade, through the body cavity, out the right side and lodged in the right shoulder. An over all great end to a wildly adventurous hunting weekend. Next weekend I will be returning for my doe as well as resuming my archery deer experience in the same county.
All else, good luck this season.

Will do. There are only about 2 ways to hunt goats in Bennett county. Ghillie suit and sniper crawl, or the 60mph Stalk with the mirror for a rest. The latter doesnt work as well because they are such a nuisance people chase/shoot at them all year long to keep them away from they hay for cows, and they tend to bolt any time a vehicle gets within 3/4 of a mile. The slightest spook and they head east 2 miles to Todd County (reservation) where they are "safe"

Re: First goat of 09

How hard is it to obtain a nonresident tag and how much?

Re: First goat of 09

as i am a resident i dont really know how hard it is to get a non-resident tag. This link is a pdf of the paper application that shows all the rules and directions.
http://www.sdgfp.info/Wildlife/hunti...s/Antelope.pdf

This link is to the SDGFP website that will let you apply for stuff online. Looks like there are left over doe tags on a first come/first sever basis but the season closes on Oct 18, so you better get on it if you want one. How much for resident, you'd have to check on the site.
