Very cool picture! Looks like quite the hunt too, absolute bummer on the meat.View attachment 37722
Got this old mountain goat on Kodiak Island in early October. 8.5 years old and a huge body. Killed him at 4 PM and got back to camp at 11:30 PM through snow, rain, fog and wind. Didn't get any meat from him as Fed Ex delayed shipping it home and it thawed out and got discarded. I was headed to Utah for my cousin's elk hunt or I would have brought it with me.
Congrats, that looks like a great hunt!After 17 years I drew a Utah Central Mountains Manti nonresident tag, Sep 18-26 rifle. My daughter's wedding was on opening day of the season! All things considered I lined up a guide that knew the unit, had horses, etc. There is always some luck involved in addition to everything else. How we encountered this bull did involve some luck, in addition to my guide's knowledge of the area and skill. View attachment 37723
