Pack goats
« on: January 02, 2016, 07:25:47 PM »
I'm just curious does any one use pack goats on here. I started my mini alpine about a week ago and he's doing really good and I'm going to start my Nubian soon

It seems like a good price if it's a good goat. Has he been bonded to people? They do require work to train them though and there will be more investment in gear if you want to pack. Goats don't do well alone either. Usually you'll want a pair at least.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
