    So I was in scotland last summer hunting roebuck in the rut, and was lucky to harvest a good six pointer, but also more interestingly a wild scottish feral goat, that might rank as high as 9th place in the SCI record book. Had my friend preserve them, and here is the result.

    Raseni, Congratulations on your trophies.

    "More interestingly"... that feral goat... not one for me, but I think you just added another little ungulate to my list.

    I have never really though about shooting the feral goats, before I saw the big group of goat on the mountain top. It was about a 1 mile hike up to a shooting position, and really a fantastic hunt. And when I now have him hanging home, here on the wall, I am really pleased about the hunt, but for the european game the roe deer is my absolute favorite.

    Glad I added something to your list. :)

    cheers

    yes rick, the roe deer are fantastic. Yes I also think my friend did a good job with the taxidermy, he is also doing all my african trophies from last safari. So canï½´t wait to get them home.

    cheers

    So the goat has been measured up now, and information sent to SCI, It will make # 9 in the record book with 83 6/8 inches. So I am very pleased with that.

    cheers
