I didn't draw a tag, but I went to BC to hunt mountain goat. I got one the second day of my hunt. It was a challenging hunt to say the least. It was aged at nine years with 9 1/2 horns. I am getting a lifesize mount of it. wife not too excited about that, but she tolerates me.
so where and the heck are the pictures? You can not just go on a mountain goat hunt, have success in bagging a great one with 9 inch horns and not give us a complete run down with pictures. Come on CVC... you know better than that. Let's see some celebration shots! And you were in Canada? I expect those to be up no later than tonight sir! ha But seriously... let's see them.
I posted some in my picture gallery and in the story about the goat hunt. I can post some here in this post. One pic has a mountain range with one peak jutting out above the others. That is where we hiked to the first day, to the base of that peak. Once we got there, then our hunt started. I took the picture from where we were the second day.
The other pic I posted is the cabin that we spent the night in on the mountain the day I got my goat. Pretty rustic and spartan but it beats a tent on the mountain. BTW, i took that pic myself.
I'll post more later if you really want to see them. Some beautiful scenic shots.
Here are a couple more. I might as well as post the goat I got. The terrain was so steep that despite being in the prone position I kept sliding down and would have to reposition myself while waiting for the shot. There was two goats up there and I was ready to shoot one, but the guide yelled no, take the other one. Once he saw the second one side by side he realized it was a whole lot bigger.
Wow... I am jealous to say the least. That looks like a great goat. Congratulations on taking that thing and having such an amazing experience up north. And that is some seriously good service... you got these pictures up by tonight. Mission accomplished. T
Hey, I aim to please. No need for you to be jealous, just from reading your stories I can tell you have a bright hunting future ahead of you. You already have lots of great hunts under your belt and there will be many more to come. I bet you get a sheep or two in your life.
When hunting whitetails there are many different languages being spoken afield that I key on when outdoors. All these little creatures living around whitetails have something to tell us if we are willing to listen.
My favorite tattletales of the outdoors are a handful of little birds that live in my state of Ohio. Maybe yours too. A tip for the upcoming season.
There are Blue Jays, Cardinals, Chickadees, Killdeer, and Sparrows that all have language...
