My son flew home for spring break and we got to do some hunting today. Good day for getting food.
Just spent a week away, five deer and four hogs. Too bloody hot for this time of year though
Where are you located?
What type of goats are they?
I’m in Hawaii. Those are Spanish goats. The place we are hunting has smaller goats when looking at the body and curlier horns. Other places have bigger bodies. Like way bigger. From a few years ago:
Both were mature Billy’s. Just from very different areas
Had a fantastic spring turkey season, it went way too fast! Two nice toms from the mountains. Still a bit of snow had to cut downed trees and get out the traction boards a few times to get into camp.
Haven’t been around much as life’s been pretty busy. Finally got out last week to do some hunting saw a bunch of small stuff but nothing I’d feel good about taking home. Finally found a group that I would take from and got this once the group was in a good place
About 150 yards away across a gulch is about 20 goats. Then the rain started and since we were up around 7000’ it got a little cold. So no meat taken home but still a great day out in the field.
Picked this big boy up on a clouser minnow and 6wt rod.
The best kind of fun. Doing nothing.
Well I’m productively feeding mosquitoes anyway...wouldn’t want the little vampires to starve.
This boy was looking for a date for the evening. He came in from my right at about 65 yards but he proceeded to walk straight at me until he was under 50. When he turned 1/4 to I sent a 556 soft point. He bounced left, about 3 good jumps/15 yards into a little spot completely surrounded by barb wire size briars of course.
Jeez. The little rascal is heavy to drag as dead weight! I gotta go get my Jeep..it’s got 4wd, it’ll make down the wet hill and back up right? ( we’re gonna find out!)
404 error. Is anyone else getting tagged by that or just me?
Its just you i guess.
