First goat sightings in the basin we spent the night in last night.





Camp for the night.

Make sure to piss on flat rocks where you have been and seen them. It will draw them like moths to a flame!

As a FYI if you happen to bend or break those Black Diamond hiking poles you can purchase sections of them. I have bent and broke a few.

That's my sister in law's bent pole. She bent it on the AT last month and hasn't contacted them yet. My Eastons are still straight LOL.

Yeah, there's about 40-ish nannies and kids just below the rock face straight up from my left foot.

Thank you. I've got a ways to go to catch up I guess!!

I've got a couple more weekends of family stuff to handle then I'll be back out looking again. Hard to believe I can be mountain goat hunting in a month. I do plan to wait a while for them to hair up and will probably hunt in early October.

Something I've put a lot of time into thinking about. I think I'm good from a gear standpoint. I do worry a little about early season snow, but maybe I'm overthinking it.

What are you thinking for a mount if you get a nice goat with good hair? Are you going to do a shoulder or a half or full body mount?

Except for access, I would take snow over rain in that country, but you are wise to wait IMHO.  :tup:

Well....that's a tough one at this point. Shoulder pedestal is what I'm thinking, but we're gearing up for a new house, so the goat may end up euro'd for now with the cape taxidermy tanned. Once we get the new place, then decide on the mount so I know which way I want it facing, form, etc. Hopefully that makes sense.

Is it that much more to get the whole hide tanned as opposed to just the cape? You can make a spot for a full.body mountain goat a criteria for the new place lol.
