I went back and looked at the

I went back and looked at the pic of the goat and the angle of the terrain.  I would say where the goat is at that point is 45 degrees.  This was a "flat" part and the part where the goat stopped rolling down.  You're right about not being able to see the goat.  The only time I could see him was when he was right at the edge.  If he stepped back a foot or two he would disappear.  Again, was it 70, maybe not.  Was it 45, don't think so.  The actual angle was probably somewhere in between.  Truth is it doesn't really matter.

Yeah, like I said... you

Yeah, like I said... you killed a great goat on a once in a lifetime hunt. Who in the heck cares what the angle was. You were informed that angle makes a difference in shooting and you adjusted for it and nailed your goat. Great job man! I am jealous.

Thanks.  I didn't take

Thanks.  I didn't take offense at you questioning the angle....I am not one to BS so when you brought it up I started to question it and wanted to make sure that when I tell the story it is accurate.  I really don't like to embellish, but sometimes the facts, like the actual angle, are not really that important so I pick a number. 

I do know for a fact that it was steeper coming down than it was going up (just kidding - damn gravity made me fall a few times).
