    Default Another booner Goat!

    We just got back from a Southeast Alaska goat hunt, my youngest son Wyatt took a nice goat, horns were 10.5 long and bases were 5.5, each horn had about 3/4-1" broken off, would have put him over 11'' horns!....he scores 53 1/8 gross and 52 6/8 net. Weather was great and we had a very good time!
    My sons Kyle, Wyatt and me....

    Cold nights, but a good fire under a full moon made it a little better!

    Goat beds in the snow,over looking the lake!

    Nice work Ramhunter and fam! That's how you knock over a goat, or at least how we all hope it goes once we send the heat!
    That's a beauty of a Billy.
    Great pics, looks like you had some fantastic weather.

    Beautiful! That looks like a fine hunt. Three guys for one big goat is ideal.

    Where'd he hit him with a 120 gr slug to drop him in his tracks like that? Can't ask for any better that's for sure....

    High shoulder shot, breaking his spine!...he was stone dead when we walked up to him, very little blood which cleaned up nice for great pictures!
