    Thumbs up AFG&G Goat Identification Quiz

    http://www.wildlifenews.alaska.gov/h...iz_for_web.pdf


    The above link will download a pdf to your computer for the digital version of a goat sex identification quiz that Fish and Game just recently produced. Since we recently had a lot of interest in this topic, I figured many would like to look through this to practice their skills before heading afield this coming fall.

    Also available on paper at many ADF&G offices. I've got the newsprint version kicking around the living room...

    Talked with ADF&G before I submitted my proposal. At this time they mentioned that they were working on a poster that would assist hunters, but when I mentioned that Utah has a test online they mentioned it would cost too much and it wasn't needed?

    Glad to see they changed there mind.

    Thumbs up Great post

    Thanks for the post. I feel pretty good about that test. I only missed 1. Its great that game and fish finally came up with something else besides the poster. I would like to see something like montana's griz/black bear test though. You have to take the test and pass to get the certificate to hunt. Hillbilly

    I missed a couple of the juvenile animals and one where the pic was fairly fuzzy. I wouldn't have pulled the trigger on any of those, though, so I felt pretty good about it. Even better, my wife got all of them but one, and she's the one with the permit this year!

    I missed more than a couple but like Brian I wouldn't have shot any of the ones I missed.

    Default Same here

    I did not read any of the material, scrolled through and answered very quickly. Missed 2, but I would not have considered any of the goats I missed.

    Default Great Post

    I sent a couple of pictures into the email address listed in the quiz and got a quick response from Kristen. She is going to use some of the pictures I sent her in the next edition. Sounds like she is looking for more.

    Thanks, Brian. That was a good test. I'll have to keep it in mind prior to the August opening date. Appreciate the information.

    This is great. I'll take a copy of this with me to look at before we head out on the hunt. Every little bit helps & I even taught my wife & thing or two lastnight about goats (like I'm the expert)...we enjoyed looking at it together.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Default That was fun

    And informative. I missed a bunch, but that's ok. I figure most I could not have shot with a bow anyway. They sure are pretty animals, and some gorgeous country to boot.
    Now If I could just get on top of the mountain as easy as it was in the test!

    Default Cool!

    I gotta say, that was pretty cool. I could see where that would help alot of people out.

    I missed 2 but wouldn't have shot them anyway. DO all goats have orange collars or are the ones in the pictures someones pets or are they trying to make a fashion statement ? LoL

    Great stuff Brian. Missed #4 and #19. Will be studying up some more prior to October Kodiak goat hunt. Hopefully some studying in July scouting and August and September weekend goat hunting for my dads permits help solidify the differences between nannies and billies. Thanks again.

    Missed two. Thought the first group of three was all nannies. The second time I picked the male out, though. Also missed on that young billy thinking it was a nannie.

    Missed one, but luckily guessed right on a couple I was unsure of... so I could have missed more. I would not have taken the shot on a number of those goats if all I could see is what was in the picture.

    Those orange collars... sheesh we should send them in some pictures of goats without bright orange collars on.
