Are you having Matt in

Are you having Matt in Clifton do the mount?  The reason that I ask is that when I was in his shop the other day he was talking about a hunter that had a nanny and was going to do the leg dangling over the rock mount.  Looking at the picture that he had of the way that he was going to do the mount looks like it will turn out real nice.

Congratulations! Awesome

Congratulations! Awesome goat! That is the trophy of a lifetime and to take it with a bow, I think, makes it even sweeter. Nice pics and good story.

Congratulation on a great hunt and trophy

Hawkeye, that is a great story and sounds like a fantastic hunt. Congratulation on a great hunt and trophy. If lucky I can write my story in 6 or 7 years. Be sure to post pictures once you get her back from the taxidermist.

Thanks guys! I still can't

Thanks guys! I still can't stop reliving it in my head. I will post a link to the video as soon as I figure out how to get it up.

Vermonster: I graduated in May with a degree in Wildlife Biology... it almost makes this hunting stuff unfair haha Yeah right! Thanks for the heads up on the job. Walden wouldn't be a bad spot to work... lots of moose!

Critter: Although I had a lot of people suggest that taxidermist, I ended up going with Barry Smith from Alpine Taxidermy in Hot Sulfur Springs. He has done over 700 Colorado sheep and goats and was by far the most helpful on the phone all summer. He taught me how to cape my goat's face when I brought it in... and his shop was as busy as its ever been before. He's a great guy and judging by the work I saw in his shop... its going to turn out great. He gave me a discount for taking measurements in the field and doing a good job on the cuts. Still gonna be right at $1500 but I can't wait to see it!

Quinton: Ha. You ARE the killer! I've never seen a living room like that. I'm just hoping to find a buck like any of yours here in a month out your way!

I would seriously look into

I would seriously look into that Hawkeye.  usajobs.gov is easily searchable, and it's a pretty easy application process.  Just curious, do you want to stick in Colorado, or just the rockies, or what? 

If you consider looking for stuff like that, shoot me a PM and I will answer any questions you may have.
