It was a friend of mine whose goat tumbled. He did not realize the benefits of a big gun and dropping them in their tracks.
With most hunts I have been on, and with my goat we have had good luck if you can shoot them while anyplace but above them. Of course the place they always look for danger is below...
I understand about being a sheep nut. I went through heavy withdrawels last year when I could not accompany anyone on a hunt. Hopefully that will change for this year. Of course I would love to find a way to go after Dalls up in your neck of the woods.
sscoyote - email sent. Hope I don't curb your enthusiasm, but it is to bad you applied for the early season. I think most goat hunters agree the real trophy in a goat is the cape - and the later in the year the better for the cape. Typically I hunt the last few days of the season if possible. Then you may gamble with snow but the capes are beautiful.
