Terry n Travis's hunt
Just walked in from local goat hunt. I flew in all the gear and scouted from about 11 am to 3 pm on friday, at 3:30 pm travis arrived and we flew in for our hunt. We saw numerous goats on the way-in and from camp. On the way in there was a plane parked 500 yards from our tent, so I thought it was going to be a crowded hunt. Well, a nice guy name David walked up and introduced himself and we came up with a plan. Travis and I would hunt to the south and he could hunt the billy to the north. One hour before light Travis and I headed out to where we saw some goats the day before from camp. About 2 hours later we could only see nannys and kids, so we continued on our walk about. We rounded the corner and a nice single long horned goat was walking up the cliff, at 260 yards. I had to get closer and out of brush to get shot. At 200 yards goat the goat was starting to disappear, so I let it taste my 7mm. Would of took good pics but only had the iphone which was at the plane. So, short work and the 9" nanny with beautiful hair was cleaned and packed. We were about a 1/3 the way back when we came upon 6 goats, which we had seen earlier, and we started to continue when travis noticed a big goat about 200 yards straight up. He pulled out his spotting scope and was pretty sure it was a billy, so I said shoot it. After the 198 yard single shot kill the goat fell into and got stuck in a rock about 150 yard straight up the cliff. About 30 seconds later the goat starts to tumble. It came to rest about 40 yards from where we were standing. He tagged his 9.25 inch billy and hiked my to camp with my goat. Shortly returned to find raven had found his bully, but luckily did not real damage. After pics and short hike back were back to camp by 3pm. Dont think we could ask for a better trip. Best part of it is Travis was a total stranger, who volunteered to tag along when I said on another post that I would take a second before the hunt and now I have another friend.
