Now, when you do the write-up there should be plenty of spacing, time in between posting paragraphs and theatrical story line. When I read it I want to feel as if I was there and it was entertaining. :chuckle: :tup:

Probably going to be at least mid July before goat country is accessible from what I've gathered.

Awesome Josh, Congrats!  Regarding access, yes, it might be a couple more weeks.  I was down lower in RR area about 1.5 weeks ago and still patches of snow in shady areas down pretty low.  High country still looked pretty socked in.

mountain goat hunting in the Goat Rocks Wilderness this fall. I still can't believe it. I can't imagine a more quintessential western backpack mountain hunting experience than a mountain goat hunt.

Outstanding! Congratulations. I remember hunting up there, back in the day.  Beautiful country.  Best of luck.

Congrats.
I would recommend studying up on the difference between a big goat and a typical goat.
Billy's have some trade marks that separate them from nannies.
All Billys can look similar.

Just my 2 cents.

Cheers.

When is the last time you checked results to make sure it hasn't changed?
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

You shouldn't feel so bad about drawing with low points. Last year my husband drew 1 of 2 quality elk tags in the Teanaway with only 2 points. Don't know how or why that happened but it happened. For a second there I did feel bad for the guys that have been putting in for years, just for a second though. You just have to embrace what you have been gifted. Pour your heart and soul into it the best you know how. Enjoy every tiny moment, from the time you found out you drew to the time you drive back from your trip with a big ol' billy in the back of your rig. Most importantly, keep us entertained with your epic hunt on here, we can't wait either  :tup:

Congratulations!!!!!   Good luck.  I just found out today that I drew a goat tag.   Looked when the results first came out as soon as everything came out and must of missed it.  Opened my mail today from fish and game figuring it was for my cow permit I drew.  And the read I drew a goat permit.  Did not know until today.  I was like how did I misss the selected on my goat app.  17 points but finally got lucky.
