Got my goat back... yay for record books

My taxidermist (Barry Smith; Alpine Taxidermy) finished my goat just in time to have it displayed at the Colorado Bowhunter's Association banquet this past Saturday. I couldn't be happier with it and Barry is my taxiderist for life!

My goat ended up making Pope and Young and I accepted an award for taking the second largest goat taken in the state last year with a bow. I also accepted a "first timer" award, which is given to individuals who take their first animal with a bow. While accepting my awards they told me that I was the only person to ever get a first timer award on a mountain goat haha.

Awesome mount!  I believe

Awesome mount!  I believe that it is extremely rare that someone's first harvest with a bow is a mountain goat!  Can't imagine that happens much.   lol
