Been crazy busy here on the ranch so the season was five days old before I was able to get out.

I was hunting on a friends place near Big Timber and spotted this guy bedded below a lone scrub pine tree on the highest point he could find in the area. Fortunately there was a convienient patch of sage that I was able to get between him and I. A quarter mile stalk ending in a 200 yard crawl put me within 20 yards of him. First time I've not blown it and was able to end it this early... [Wink]

Course he bailed off the mountain down into the sage filled canyon below. I about jellied my brain in the 90+ degree heat before I got him out. I didn't want to go all the way back to the truck so like an idiot I went after him without a water bottle or anything.

Still got a couple doe tags to fill then deer/elk opens Sept 4. Hope this is the start of a great season.

Used my BBO longbow that Keith Deters made me, third goat with this baby. Arrow Dynamics carbon arrow with a 160gr Grizzly.

Awesome. When you told me you were out chasing goats, you didn't say you got one! I'll be sending those Grizzlies out Tuesday- maybe one of them will be lucky too!

Nice work! [clapper]
