Title: Bumping River Goat
Post by: Fish4Fun on June 15, 2017, 11:29:54 AM
My brother drew the Bumping River Goat tag this year. So if anyone has any insight of what we can expect it would be nice to get some tips and pointers.

Heard there was a monster Billy taken out of there last year but didn't see any pics. Rumor said he was pushing 10 inches.

Just like my elk tag last year, time to get busy and see what we can do.
I know there are some nice goats in there, just need to learn the country

Thanks to the guys that have offered up some info on the Bumping Goat tag, my brother and I will give it a pretty good go and I am sure we will get him a goat.

Its not hard to get a Goat, but it is quit a bit harder to get that BC Billy in wa st. If you want to get the most out of your once in a lifetime tag look us up. We do know where the Bigger Billys hang out. Our goat hunters will get pictures of different Billys during the summer so you can pick out the one you want.
Let us give you a hunt of a lifetime !!!

The biggest goat I have ever seen was at Richmond Mine Lake. If I had that tag I would be hunting that basin and the Thunder Creek basin.

Congratulations to my brother on getting his Bumping River goat today.  Also, a huge thank you to Karl Blanchard and his buddies on helping him today.  Karl or I will get some pictures posted later.

But we need pics, and a story before a mod decides to ban you.  :chuckle:

My brother is not on the site, so I have asked Karl to tell the hunt story for him. He did the tag justice too, plenty of scouting trips and hours of looking. After 17 years of putting in, the reward was worth it  :tup:

Karl Blanchard was on the hunt with my brother, he will tell the story since my brother is not a member. I opted to not go on the hunt last weekend. With me having had 4 heart attacks, I didn't want to slow them down if they needed to get across to some goats in a hurry. I was going to hunt with him this weekend if needed,  might have taken an extra day to get a critter out is all.  :chuckle:

Oh man, this sounds like an epic story! Can't wait to read it, especially with Karl telling it. Sounds like miles were hiked, sheer faces traversed, blood, sweat and tears for sure.

Knowing Karl it was probably a grueling back breaking pack out to.
