Default 2020 Uinta West Mtn. Goat Hunt

I had originally planned to wait until August to start looking for Mtn. Goats but all this social distancing has got me getting antsy. That being the case, I plan to start making day trips to the area to see if I can get eyes on some of these beautiful animals.

I'm hoping to get up there this weekend for at least one morning and hope to catch sight of some goats. It is a bit of a drive to any of my pre-selected access points from the SL Valley so I'm hoping the early mornings will pay off in the end.

I will use this thread to document the hunt from beginning to end. Because this is a once in a lifetime hunt for me, but not being a great writer, I will attempt to include a lot of pictures...

In the beginning...

As I sat on the morning of February 21st monitoring the "Well...When is it gonna start?" thread for any signs of Expo successes from the UWN, I get the familiar chime from my phone indicating that I had a new email.

You can imagine my surprise when I open my email to find this...

I'm buckled up, let's ride!

The nice thing about goats is that where you find them in July is about where you will find them in August/Sept/October. November they start roaming more due to breeding season, but they still stay in roughly the same general area +/- a few miles year round.

Not too late to send me critical info on the unit, BTW. I can only shoot one and will never hunt them again up there so really.....honey hole locations are welcomed.

Default 2020 Uinta West Mtn. Goat Hunt

Spent the day on top of the world. Didnít get eyes on any goats but definitely put some miles on my legs and hours behind the glass.

Was a little slow getting the phone skope on a nice group of bucks. Just caught the last small one as he headed into the trees. Have to see if I can post video or not.






Iíll be back at it next weekend.
