The gratuitous junk shots he gave us took away any doubt of his sex. I agree with your length assessment of at or near 8".

Because he was near a main road it'd be hard to pass during season. Convenience (though I hate to admit it) does contribute to harvest decision in this case.

Accessibility on a goat is huge. I will say, he carries his mass very nicely. I would be shocked if he were less than 8" but only mildly surprised if he were over 9". Goats are stupid hard to judge.

Default 2020 Uinta West Mtn. Goat Hunt

New wild fire up the mirror lake highway, lots of people(including their litter and trash that they leave behind)and a handful of goats.

The morning wind was blowing like crazy up those rocks which you can hear in the videos. It allowed us to creep within 40yds of some nannies and kids.

Unfortunately the billy we watched a few weeks back has not been seen again. Itís hard to determine sex, let alone judge size of these animals.

The goat on the left in the first video has me wondering...too young to shoot for sure, but is it even a billy? The horns have an even curve to them but again, itís hanging out with 2 other adult goats and a kid.

Iím appreciating the challenge and Iím appreciating the work involved in getting to them.

And llamas....!

Received this test kit in the mail today. I'll of course oblige them if I can.

I'm taking it as a good omen and a sign that they are wishing me good luck on the upcoming hunt.

I won't get out again to look for goats until the 5th when the season opens. Have family stuff this weekend (have to pay my dues in order to be free to hunt) and a quick trail cam / dh archery hunt next weekend.

I'll for sure be on the mountain with my bow in hand come 9/5 though.

I'm excited to see the grip'n'grins (and I'll forgive you for shooting a tennis ball goat)

Congrats!

I'm not even sure what that is. But I like the sound of it.


I think I just got it....that's a semi accurate description to be sure.
