Well I finally made it up scouting for my upcoming Mountain Goat hunt this past weekend. This is actually my second trip. It's a 7 hour drive for me and I live in Cheyenne.

I sure wish I lived closer but I'm not complaining since I defied the odds a drew a tag.

It's some really beautiful country. I can't believe how green the forage is this time of year. We've received a lot of rain in Wyoming this spring. It should be a good year for horn growth for all species.

I hiked quite a few miles to learn the area since I've never stepped foot in it. I actually saw some goats this trip.

I'm not BB but I took a few pictures.

I hiked into this lake which is about 2 miles in. I got up high on a bluff and could see most of the area. I found a Easton camo XX75 2117 with a bear razorhead. It'd been laying up there for some time. I suspect someone shot at a deer or elk back in the 80's or 90's.

Some more nannies and kids feeding.

I can start hunting them the 15th of August.

I hope to find a bigger billy.

I'll be hunting them for 2 weeks.
