"High Unitas Goat Success!!"

My wife made it happen this past weekend! After hunting hard for the first couple weeks, we found this billy in one of the worst canyons on the mountain. With a nasty storm expected the next day, we decided to go after this goat and worry about how we'd get him out once we got him on the ground. We got set up for the shot and clouds kept rolling in and we'd lose site of him. The clouds finally broke long enough for a shot and she made an amazing shot on the goat facing away. Dropped him where he stood. After the celebration, we realized we had a lot of work ahead of us. 7 hours later we had him caped, quartered and packed out. It was the hardest hunt/pack out of my life. Well worth it with the memories I shared with my wife and stories I'll be able to tell years down the road. Thanks to everyone on here who helped me with information they had about the hunt!

Wow what a beautiful animal. Goat hunting looks like a riot and the views of the uintas makes it that much better. Congrats to you and your wife on an awesome hunt.

Nice Job!

West Unit?

Back Me Off to 1,700 Yards,650 is a Little Close & I'm Not Comfortable with it!

A GUT SHOT at 1,700 Yards will Still Make Some Good BRAGGIN Rights so I Can Say I At Least Hit Him!

Yeah he's got good mass. 5 6/8 bases, 8 4/8 tall, 6 4/8 wide. We green scored him at 47. It's been an awesome experience.
