    Default Any good books on Goat hunting?

    have my first goat hunt in september, I like reading up on animals and have not seen any books dedicated to the Oreamnos americanus (goat).

    It's not a hunting book, but "A Beast the Color of Winter" by Douglas Chadwick is a fantastic read, and very informative about the goat's habits. I recommend it highly.

    2nd that opinion. He lived with the goats while studying and was even gored if I remeber correctly. Good read.

    Johnnie Laird who is on this site is probably one of the most astute individuals about goats and goat hunting that is out there. I would post up a write up of an interview that I had with him if he gives permission. He is in my opinion the Alaska Poet laureate of goat hunting. I know that I was interviewed by Fish and Game this winter and they were in awe of him.

    Goat hunting by Duncan Gilchrest,
    The windy but incredible tales of Hunting and Fishing in Alaska by Russell Annabelle
    and Handloggers by W.H. Jackson and Ethel Dassow.

    Sincerely,
    Thomas

    I read a good one about 10 years ago by Duncan Gilchrist. I can't remember the title, but very informative. Maybe you could search the author at the library.

    The Mountain Goat Challenge by Ace Sommerfeld is a terrific read and available right here through the AOD bookstore.

    I bought the AOD forum library's last new copy of "Hunt High" by Duncan Gilchrist, but I could let you borrow it.
    I have it here somewhere....
