After 14 years of applying I finally drew my Colorado goat tag. I spent a ton more time scouting than actually hunting as I was able to shoot my #2 billy at 7:30 AM opening morning with one of my best friends watching through the spotting scope 500 yards away. I had a goal to shoot a mature 5 year old billy and I was able to beat that with an older billy with 9 2/8" long on both horns and his hair could not have been better. We don't have very many old, heavy billys like Alaska and BC and I'm super happy with the whole experience. We were able to hunt goats on their turf away from the popular hiking trails and didn't see another person until we hoofed camp out the day after getting the billy out. I already loved goat country from my Colorado deer hunts, but have an even deeper love and respect for it and these tough animals now. He was super tough and took some lead and kept fighting.
