    Default Kenai Pen. Registration Goat?

    Any one heard if they're going to release any registration goat permits for the Kenai this year?

    Default don't be impatient...

    the permit hunt isn't even over yet.
    any decision will not be made until the end of the month after most of the hunt reports have been sent in and recorded.
    registration opportunities will also depend on how many nannies were taken, and how many reports are not filed on time.

    Default here's what i found out...

    looks like the only possibilities are round Mt., the resurrection peninsula, and dg365.
    although nanny take was not overly high this year, there are new guidelines for opening registration hunts. there need to be at least 4 "goat units" (a billy is worth 1, a nanny 2 ) available in the hunt area quota, AND there must be a stable or increasing population of goats. very few areas on the kenai fit the latter conditions.
    none of the areas across kachemak bay will open this year.

    Ya, I jumped the gun a little bit. I was thinking the draw season ended at the end of Sept. Even then I was a bit hasty.

    DG 365, what area is this? Didn't see it in last years winter suppliment.

    Thanks for the info Dave. We'll just have to wait and see I guess.

    i may have the number wrong, the bio said "and the one on the corner, i think 365... "
    not sure which "corner" he meant, could probably puzzle it out on a map.

    Why isn't a nanny worth more than 2 points? Frankly, I think it should be Billy only, perhaps the nanny w/o a kid clause is merely an escape route for hunters that can't tell the difference.

    I totally agree, but some won't. The goat hunting opportunities would increase if this were to become regulation.

    i mentioned on another thread, but it is likely that new regulations will soon be put forth that would make a hunter ineligible to apply for a drawing goat hunt for 4 years if they took a nanny.
    hopefully this would give a little incentive to spend the time learning the differences between the sexes.

    Default Round Mt.?

    The only Round Mt. I know of is a sheep draw area on the peninsula, no goats. What area are you referring to?

    there are lots of goats on the lower pen. We see them all the time flying around there. Its just a simple matters getting to them. I agree there are plenty of rams and no need to shoot nannys.

    Default Goats on the Kenai

    FYI and not to be a wiseguy. male goats are called Billys not Rams.

    Default No

    I was at ADF&G in Soldotna getting a dall sheep sealed, and was informed by the lady behind the counter (perhaps erroneously) that there would be no registration hunts on the Kenai for goat. I forgot to follow up with the local biologists there - I got sidetracked with sheep and brown bear.
