    Default Booner Goat.....

    I took my brother-in-law Craig on a southeast Alaska goat hunt, he got a booner goat and saw some tuff weather that southeast can throw at you in October, high winds, snow and lots and lots of heavy rain!.. Found the Billy on a ledge, but after Craig shot him three times, the Billy decided to jump off a cliff and bounce/roll 500 yds. down the mountain! Goat scored 52.5 net green, Craig got the Billy on my birthday, so that was nice too!

    Yea, The Billy rolled down into a a little creek/mud slide!.....If he would have went 20 feet further he would have went off an 1000 ft cliff, it wouldn't have been good!

    Wow...a giant mountain goat that carries the weight all the way from the hugh bases to the thick tips.
    Great genetics?
    Plentiful high quality food in the most excellent mountain goat habitat throughout his life?
    Probably both.
