Great job and congratulations! Any idea about what you're going to have done with him? I can't tell if you kept the entire hide or just the cape.

I kept the entire hide, and that’s what my dilemma has been since I got him. I was planning to do a rug with it, and that is how I skinned him. But…. He’s really a great goat for that area, and between that and the nostalgia of hunting that area where I grew up, I think my taxidermist will probably be cussing me as now I’m leaning towards a full body mount. Decisions decisions!

Oh yeah…. Plus the wife actually said I should have a full body done with it, so if your wife says that all on her own…. Does a man ever say “no”??! Haha

Beautiful, big Goat man. Congrats! And I’m +1 on the full body mount too!

Just saw this. Congrats!!
That's an awesome goat. Curious on what he aged?
We aged him at 8 years old. Could be older, but some of the rings we called false. Wouldn‘t be shocked if he was 10 years old, he’s stacking rings up at the skull. Hopefully I can get results back from the lab soon.
