That's way, way
That's way, way unfair!!!!!!!!!!!!
:lol: Awesome Hawkeye! I see a nice set or horns curling up there in the front, so I am assuming a nice goat! Your smile says it all, and we know, from all your scouting reports, you definately worked hard and prepared yourself for this hunt!
A big congrats! Now, out with the story and the full photos!!!!

I got her on opening day.
I got her on opening day. Left camp an hour before sunup and didn't get back till after dark. She is the oldest mountain goat that the Hot Springs DPW office has ever done a harvest inspection on and the oldest nanny that my taxidermist has ever taken in at 13 years old. Here's some pics of her teeth... or lack thereof. She has no incisors left and her pre-molars and molars are flat from a lot of years on the mountain. Absolutely in the top 2 most grueling packouts I have ever had!
I'm hoping to be able to write up the story tonight but if I can figure out how to get video online... I have it all on tape, over the shoulder!
The last pic here is me de-fleshing the flank section of the hide that I'll be brain tanning and making into winter moccasins myself.
