Aerial surveys completed during August 2004 indicated that the population in registration permit area RG249 was 330 goats. The Department set the maximum allowable harvest at 16 goats. Current harvest is 15 goats including 4 nanny. Nannies count as 2 goats toward the harvest quota. Additional take beyond the harvest objective could harm the long-term stability of the population.
