Hi Stuart * The are the King of mountains, the semi deserts and where ever the are and still you can't get a decent piece meat of them, guess I have to shot them my self. Regards Ebi

Goat mountain, quite the ferral pest...

Some big bucks too....

Mouth-watering capture. No can shoot..they're on a skyline, especially those trophy sets of horns.. Now if I could just stalk up there. God, it's a bugger getting old..

Use a helicopter like they do when culling in the outback.

I LIKE this Stuart...they're widespread aren't they, these feral bldy least you have found a good use for them here, as a subject to photograph! :-)))

Thanks Caroline.... I was out there again on Monday and there were dozens of them all over the place.

Last one I ate was a young billy. I thought it would be rough but..not bad at all.

Nothing wrong with goat meat is there...

Perhaps I could introduce them to Messers Walther & Steyr :-))
