    I was. My buddy talked me into the 338 due to the toughness of mt goats.

    That's awesome Michael. Look forward to the rest of the story when you have time. Did you get a chance to go after some Coues Deer as well?

    Nice goat!! Most guys would never guess just how big a goat is and how tough they are. They hae to be tough just to survive where they live. I can understand going with the 338, I have seen a few real hammer heads that have gone 350 pounds on the hoof. They sure have a stocky build and serious muscle mass.

    Looks like his horns are pushing 10 inches long, scores in the high 40's?
