the big Billy had bedded down under this ice shelf ...

Anthony's stalk was silent (and he didn't even take off his Corks) and his shot was good ...

the Billy made his way up onto a steep shelf ... after a little while he bled out and took the tumble ...

a dandy for sure ... they estimated the Billy to be around 300 Lbs on the hoof ... the horns didn't get damaged in the fall ... both tips were broomed off ... the 10 inch length with 6 inch bases should put it in the B&C & P&Y books ...

Muskeg,

Good job, great goat and fantastic photos.

Thanks Johnnie and nice job!

BTW, I went into a new spot this year in Windham Bay and realized I couldn't get a goat out by myself since it took waaay longer to get in than I anticipated with too much brush and I was solo so I had to come out without trying to arrow one--crap!

I saw maybe the biggest billy I have seen, at least in Alaska and a monstrous nanny with about 12-13" spread and 11"-12" or so horns. Saw 30 nannys and kids in one group, the most I have ever observed together.

I just got an email from Anthony and he just had the Official Score done after the dyring period ...

It scores 52 even ...

Great job Anthony ...

Our early Oct hunter also took a nice one that should go around 51 ...

I have a late August '10 opening ... that is usually a good bowhunting time slot ....

Great goat by the way!
