    Jaeger, I'm not sure on CIC measurements for goats but he was 23-24" horn length.

    Merlin, yes it's a Wildcat Predator 8 model. I wish I had taken it off now before climbing three hours up a mountain!! Great bit of kit though, it allows you to hear a distinct strike and you can tell from the tone where abouts on the animal you hit especially at extended range.

    In the second picture you can see the herd of goats from where I shot, they stayed with the fallen billy until we approached. Anyone care to guess at the distance of the shot? By the way I`m not into long range stuff at all.

    Most of the Goat i have stalked have been at the 80 yard mark. They are very tough animals and carry lead well, but a well placed .243 bullet has always done the job for me, though i have taken them with the 30-06 too. Theres quite a bit about Feral Goat shooting in the new publication in my signature.

    They make a fantastic boiled skull mount on an oblong sheild. Really nice!

    Merlin,

    It was approx 180m shot with a 30.06 (good guess on range) I was using 150gn federal fusion which did not expand on this shot, I will not use them again but will go back to power shok 150`s.

    Thanks for all the kind comments guys! I will take him over to the taxidermist later today so in a few months I`ll post pictures of the mount.
    We did spend time looking for stags as well but no joy on this trip.

    Very nice guys. Opening the eyes to Scotland.
    thanks for the vistas.

    Lighter gear (kit) climbing mountains, YES!
