Last year in July, a buddy of mine found a group of goats on a ridge near Brown Duck Mountain. It was either Brown Duck Mountain itself, or one of the mountains immediately S/SE from there.

Congratulations and good luck!

I saw some good goats on the northwest ridge of brown duck basin in early October last year.

I have Brown Duck mapped out but don't think I'll get there to scout. So far I've been in the Grandaddy area and plan to hit an area just West of there this weekend.

If that doesn't turn anything of interest up I will probably concede to renting llamas and going deep on the north end of the unit.

Are the numbers higher deep on the N side? I was up near red castle a couple weeks ago. I kept looking and looking but never saw any

I have no idea.

The biologist notes on the Hunt Maps site says more billies are found along the spine of the mountain range, ie. North Slope.

I haven't reached out to the biologists up there yet but plan to in the next week or so. With all these suggestions I may have to make another trip up to look around BD Basin after all.

Back at it this morning. First spot didn't turn up any goats. Spotted this goat (my spidey senses tell me it's a Billie) on some cliffs about 2 miles out. He had a friend that showed up about a half hour later.

Terrible location to harvest either one. They'd for sure take a header off those cliffs.

Also spotted a nursery group of 8 even further out at the top of a basin. Nannies and kids by the looks of it.

Good to finally be seeing goats though. The search will continue!

Back at it today in the heat.

Im just starting to gauge size on these and if I had to guess, Id say his horns were maybe 7-8 is all? So probably a youngish billy.

I'd likely shoot this one had I the chance.

Thoughts on this one?

I agree that that is a billy. He's not a monster, but he's not a baby either. Look at how his ears compare to the rest of his face. I would bet he's right around 8" long and close to 4 years old.
