WOW Dallan, that is one magnificent looking animal mate. Congratulations all round mate...you deserve it just for getting up to that height and still being able to breathe. Who was the lucky one to squeeze the trigger?

What will you do with the skin? It looks like it would make a beautiful rug in the lounge room, with the head mounted of course.

Hope your Dad is doing OK mate and recovers quickly.

Sorry to hear about your Dad, hope all is well with him.
Which area were you hunting?

As much as all of us would love pics and the stories behind them, your dad is certainly a priority. No worries on getting to it any time soon. Take care of your dad and when things settle down then give us the details.

11,800 feet is getting up there. Even growing up around here and spending time in the mountains the air starts to feel pretty thin hiking around above 10K+.

At 12,200 it wouldn't be the third highest in the state though. There are close to 20 peaks that break 13K in the Uintah range, including the highest, Kings Peak.

How long has the Beaver area been open? I didn't even know they had Mt. Goat in that part of the state...

I wish I had been there as your gun bearer mate...that area looks magnificent.

That goat is simply outstanding and I don't think I've ever seen a happier and more satisfied hunter than Heather in the pics.

What are your plans for the animal? Is the meat good? Will you get the head mounted? Will you have the skin tanned?

I can only add that I think you also have a special relationship with our Saint-Hubertus.
You see what can happen when you "listen to the force"...

You ever get to the US for a trip or something hollar, I can give you a few magnificent places to drive through 99.99999 of the populace doens't know about.

Yep, everything about it was "fun". My brother before we went out gave advice to not feel like we have to work so hard at it, it wouldnt be fun. He said he'd rather have a nice goat next to a road than one 1/2" bigger dead 2 canyons over". I agree

My brother is actually one of the top taxidermists in our state, he's offering to cut me a really good deal on a life sized mount. So currently that's the plan with it. The cape and head is in his freezer atm, he's been out of town all week.

My wife has to fill out a mandatory harvest survey and send in 2 teeth to verify age... apparently they want the scoring measurements of the horns which I didnt take, so when he gets around to working on it I'll have to run down and measure it. I'm hopeful it will at least make the B&C awards, I'd love to surprise my wife with that news.

B&C Awards...now wouldn't that top off a magnificent hunt. No two ways about it mate...I'm green with envy.

How is your Dad going mate...on the mend I hope. Pass on wishes from all us Nuts for a swift and full recovery.
