Mountain goat rifle

Yes Goats are tough but the 25-06 still packs enough punch to kill one humanely. A good bullet and good shot placement are all that are needed. I will be chasing them this fall again in Alaska with my .308. Had a blast doing it the last time and will definitely have fun again this time. Just remember to judge where the animal can go after the shot,nothing like repelling down a cliff to recover an animal (learned that the hard way). Sometimes you have to pass on the shot if the animal is in a un-recoverable place. Just move on to the next one and hope it is on the side of a gentle sloping mountain side Big smile
