Friend of mine had this tag last year. Saw goats every time we went out but it was a good excuse to go for a ride and look for yotes so he waited till about the 5th time we went out to shoot.

Nice, starts tomorrow, saw a bunch of animals last Saturday, heading down this evening to glass before dark, camp, and get up early and make it happen!

Drove by on I-15 a week ago. Saw speed goats just passing by on the freeway out in the fields both coming and going. Not sure if it was private land, I’m assuming it was.

Super easy hunt, I drove down opening day late afternoon and knocked out my goat before sundown. The heat sucked but the goats looked pretty healthy. My young daughter tagged along and had a good time. It was worth it for her sake but I was kinda thinkin in the back of my head--'I waited 5 years of points for this?' Even though ya have first crack at them I would probably put in for a later hunt in the future to avoid how hot it was, it was pushing 100 degrees. I don't like hunting in the extreme heat like that but I would rather be bird hunting later so I go early dates.

Man, I didn't have as good of an experience. Drove down Friday before the opener, glassed, camped. Set up on some Saturday AM, blew the stalk, came up over a rise at 270 from two bedded does but they busted before I could get set up, drove, hiked, and sat again Saturday evening, close but no cigar. Blew another stalk Sunday AM, and decided to pack it up as I wasn't feeling good (probably dehydrated and didn't eat much during the day Saturday) Sure enough there were 3 bedded 250 yards off Black Rock Road, took the shot prone under the fence....and missed. Felt sick, and headed back to SLC.

I got permission on some Private near there for this past weekend. Sat water Friday night, had a super nice buck come to 80 yards! Saturday AM sat the same water, nothing came in. Drove around for a bit and saw a few bucks but no does in sight. I knew where they were bedding, up high on this private, probably a mile from the truck. It was hot, but I said F IT its time to make this happen, got busted by a buck, had 2 does at 200 bust, then finally found the group over the next little rise at 350. Crawled to 340, found a lone doe, set up, took my time, and one shot with a .308 Superformance 165 GMX Copper dropped her 100 yards from where she stood. Back and on ice within 1.5 hours. THANK YOU to the private land owner for permission, I'll definitely be putting in for later tags in the future. I was driving an older gold tacoma with a blue cap if anyone happened to see me out there suffering!

Dang PH! That sounds like an ordeal! I saw a lot of goats and all on public. I literally drove around for an hour, saw a big ole doe with two fawns at 250 yards, stopped the truck, walked off the road, knelt down and killed one of the fawns. I woulda felt bad killing a momma doe and that would have been real tough on the fawns survival so I figured kill 1 is better than taking a chance at inadvertently killin 3. It's the size of a large dog and for the sake of getting made fun of i'm not posting pics! Little sucker was tasty though! So tender! It's just too bad I only got 30 lbs of meat I could have probably drove around a little more and found a dry doe but what's the point--we had fun and filled our tag. I'm glad you were successful--you earned it!

Thanks, it was a chore, I focused on the E end off Black Rock Road, I think I could have done better a bit farther north on the road W from Kanosh, but all in all, got it done!
