    Wild goats are easy but you have to be able to get a shift on if you want to cull numbers! Initially you will get very close but as soon as the lead hornets start flying the little legs take them very fast.

    If you know the land try glassing it first to estimate the direction they will go. Once disturbed they normally run down the hill and up the next hill where they will stand looking back, this is where you have to be quick to follow in dead ground.

    because of this i would use your 30-06 as some shots may well be a fair distance!

    You will not need a dog to follow up as they stink as will everything that comes into contact with them!

    This time of year there will be kids around, maybe it would be better to wait until november?

    Hope this helps?

    You're not wrong there! I did my first three a couple of weeks ago and had a hell of a job. End results were good but much harder than doing deer heads. JC

    I went into an Indian once and asked for a Tarka, the waiter said 'don't you mean a Tikka?' I said 'No, I like my curry a little 'otter!'

    Sorry...
