I thought I would share my hunt. This hunt took place in the Elkhorn Mountains in Eastern Oregon. I feel like I hit the lottery drawing this once in a lifetime tag.
I am fortunate that my father, buddy, and his Fiance were able to help me pack him out. I could not have done it without them. Happy dad and I could share this hunt.

Here is my 9" Billy and some pics of the hunt. He has a very full gorgeous hide. Now I need to decide what mount to do???!!!

Thanks
Bob

Sweet.

I have a friend that did a archery hunt for goats in that area and he loved it.

For a mount only a full body mount will do it justice if you have the room and space to do it. Mrs. DallanC's looks great.

Because he has such a great hide, I am very tempted to do a full body. I think otherwise it won't do him justice? I have the room just fear stopping me, lol. Plus I like that he had no neck and went head straight to hump. He looked big on the hillside when I shot and his hair (pantalooms) went down to his feet.
Thank you guys!
Bob

Congrats on an awesome goat!! Looks like some beautiful country too. Couple all that with time with family and friends and you can't beat it.
I know you're a gun nut, what were you using?

Thanks, Longbow.

Semi custom 264 Win Mag built on a Rem 700 shooting 120ttsx at 3400fps. One shot center shoulder at 372 yards, goat crumbled and died where it had stood.

I am going full body life size. The taxidermist said we will talk what mounts it will fit when he gets the hide back. I have one in mind.
I prefer the life mounts with the head and body upright or facing up versus head down if that makes sense.

It seems like you draw everything. I would put in for all expo tags lol.

Great goat! Awesome hunt I want to do one day!
Thank you! I just got lucky for 2015. Honestly I never draw squat and drew the goat and LE Elk tag. The lord really blessed me in many ways in 2015 in all aspects of my life.

Yeah my buddies say I had lady luck last year, I even won a muzzelloader at a banquet over the summer and I never win squat. What a year!

I will say this, I never ever thought in my wildest dreams I would draw a goat tag, there are no point system here in Oregon for them. This shows you, you just never know and better always put in.
