Re: Nevada goat pic

Thanks for the input guys. I have a buddy coming into town tonight to hunt the weekend. Not my antelope tag. My buddy probably won't have to shoot far unless he has to use my big 338 but I'm guessing I will get him close to one. We will probably look for a bigger one on Saturday. The only reason I think he might be about thirteen on his strong side is because he has fairly high prongs and tips back, down, and inward from the prongs. These ones are hard for me to judge.

Here is a similarly shaped one I took a couple years ago in Nevada. He was right at 14.5" and was taken at a little under 500 yards with my STW.

Re: Nevada goat pic

That last pic is a nice goat. Hard to tell from the angle, did he have good prongs?

Congrats just the same.

I think I'd let the one in the first pic live to see another day. JMO

Now that last goat is a beauty!! Congrats!! Definately a shooter in my book.

I to would pass up that first one, that is unless it was the last day of the season.

Well, we did find a good one opening morning (yesterday) and were able to knock him down. Good two hour stalk for my buddy to close the gap to 300 yds. He is 21" wide and is about 14.5" long.

Nice! That one has some character. How are the cutters? Do you have a side shot?

Re: Nevada goat pic

He has a decent prong on his right and on his left it isn't as good but it is a double prong. He also has little horns (like a doe) growing behind his main horns. He is definitely unique.
