Alpine Goat Hunting
Last updated on September 19, 2016
Introduced by the early settlers in the 1800's, alpine goats have now become widespread throughout the country. Weighing between 80 - 120lbs, they inhabit rocks and hills similar to a tahr although at lower elevations their numbers can become high due to preferring heavier cover they can go unseen unless disturbed which makes for some great close in bow hunting.
With a variety of cape colours the billies horns can have 25 inches+ per side. Shot distances are between 20-200 yards we drive up into the hills to spot and stalk into them judging trophies off horn size and age also.
