My sweet momma drew the Utah Sportsman's tag for mountain goat. I'm wanting to keep this thread going for all the scouting we do and for the hunt. She can start hunting Sept 1st but I think she's wanting a later season goat with a better coat.

Here are a couple pics from today. I went up early this morning and glassed a bit. My mom and dad brought horses and mules and they came and picked me up on the trail and we headed to the top where they watched some goats yesterday.

They have been glassing a few times. I'll get some of her pics and post them up here too.

I'm so excited about this once-in-a-lifetime hunt! It's been fun already finding these mountain goats and watching them scale the cliffs. They are amazing! And so our my companions. It's going to be a great adventure with my family!

I got my mom to join Rokslide to post some pics and give her take on this hunt. DJR57 is her username. She posted a few pics from the weekend a couple posts up.

We also have a few deer tags on one of the units that we will probably focus on for goats. I'm headed back up this weekend to look for bucks and hopefully find a few more goats too. I'll update next week.

We backpacked in a ways to some lower stuff looking for deer this last weekend. I went with my buddy and my sister and brother in law. We didn't see any goats where we were at. We glassed up quite a few elk, two groups of bulls and a bachelor group of bucks. A couple nice bucks but I am sure I could find the same quality bucks in less remote country. We also glassed up a couple bears. I've got to get a couple pics off my other camera but here are a few. Next time we go up we'll go up to the top looking for more goats.

Couple quick pics before I go back to camp for breakfast. I have goat pics but they are on the point and shoot camera. They will have to wait til I get to a computer.

Anyone have any guesses on how big this buck is? I've watched him for 2 mornings.

Big enough. Marcus, nice buck and keep the photos and reports coming. You and mom are gonna rock! What is she going to use for a weapon?
It would be cheating with that 270 short mag........

I hope I can keep tabs on him. I can hunt archery, muzzleloader and rifle so I'll be after him.

For the goats she's most likely shooting a 7mm Rem Mag but the short mag will be there if she wants it.

I went up with my mom and dad looking in a different area where we've heard goats sometimes hang out. We didn't see any close to us but glassed up some where we've been looking the last couple weekends. The big group is mostly nannies and kids I'm sure. We were way to far to tell if there were any billies in that group. We saw 6 in the other group. They were even further away than the big bunch we seen. I didn't see any kids with them, maybe they were billies. I'm not sure. Looking at the GPS, the 6 furthest goats were just under 4 miles away.

We know those goats are up there all the time. We were hoping to find some different goats.

I watched these 5 billies as my nephew was stalking a couple bucks down below the goats. He didn't get a shot at the bucks but I got some good footage of these billies.

Those are great pictures and nice billies. I am very jealous. I was lucky enough to finally draw a tag this year but my hunting unit is on fire and am not sure if I will be able to go.
