Boulder River North Goat 2016
« on: November 16, 2016, 01:49:22 PM »
As Zoorda did with this thread for last years Goat, I decided to post in a similar way. Drawing an OIL tag is spectacular, but drawing an OIL and an Entiat late rifle tag in the same year was exceptional! Lots of prep work along with many texts, PM's, and phone calls, along with several maps and google earth provided for an epic hunting season.  :tup:

After two decades, and nearly half of another, one of my life long dreams to hunt Mountain Goat in Washington State came true in June of 2016. I have been buying permits and points since before the point system when I was in my 20’s and will be in my late 40’s this year. As the saying goes you cannot win if you do not apply.

These mountains are out all the time and I enjoy having them in my backyard. After reading the posts from last year’s adventure by Zoorda it made me want the tag even more. It took a few days for it to really sink in that I had actually drawn an OIL tag. There are three mountains in the unit, Whitehorse, Bullon, and Three Fingers.

Whitehorse is where last year’s Goat was taken and what an incredible story of how it came about, I read that post multiple times and gleaned as much as I could from it. After a few PM’s with Zoorda and talking with several friends, and other local’s that have knowledge of these mountains, I decided to put my energy into Three fingers for my hunt.

This picture is taken about one mile from my place and see this mountain often

Love seeing these mountains!

Picture taken from the Arlington airport. The mountain with snow on it is Three Fingers, the peak to the left is Mount Bullon, the Peak to the far left is Whitehorse.
