first goats

went over to west coast to visit some mates this weekend,took rifle and dog so we could go walkies and check out his new block of land to see whats about. lovely creek rund through it with native on both sides and grassy meadows along both sides ,perfect place for deer to live/fatten up.mate had spooked a big redskin a couple of weeks ago and some older footprints in creek bed sand kept interest up even in the 27 degree heat. Meg wasnt too interested for first km up creek but then started winding quite strongly ,we has seen a couple of weird smaller piles of turds not deer ,not possum ,might be goat we thought....not supposed to be goats in area but some not far away....
we crossed creek and circled out a tad to keep wind right when approaching next grassy bit but nothing seen...carried on up stream with Meg winding strongly but acting "differently" to usual.
came up over wee rise and hello whats that????
dog stopped too. ID taken care of .270 came up and I chest shot a 3 year old goat at about 30 yards Grin,dog stood there,neck shot the next one and that was just too much for her...she could see them,smell them and see they were down kicking...ears turned half off she bounded forward ..then stood there with WTF look on face...bouncing up and down as if to say "here it is but WTF is it???" the remaining goats where 10 yards away looking back as if to say "WTF just happend and WTF is that dopey looking black thing"..... managed to get her to sit and the other goats took off without dog chasing them,so a semi controled uncontrolled break from her.
definately not perfect and gives me more to work on....
we boned out rear ends of animal and continued onwards for hr or so seeing limited deer sign.dog perfect little angle from there on......Bitch by name and bitch by nature Angry
great to know they are there so mate can pop one off for tucker when ever needed,as for the deer??? we will keep looking and sooner or later suss out what and where they are eating and living.

Sounds good. What breed is Meg?
  

Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.......
