So last Sunday I had a great hunt,

Started hearing goats high on a ridge a couple miles in the valley, I follow their movement as they moved inland from the valley bottom,
as I'm stalking I notice a small heard come my way on the valley bottom so I dropped on the ground behind a small rock and a kukui nut tree,
they got to me pretty quick, the Alfa billy was a black but not shaggy medium size Billy, there was a younger red one and about 8-10 Nannies

I had several shots at the Billy but it felt wrong taking a shot on the first contact ( in Hindsight I should have taken it because the younger Billy was way better looking so probably better genes to spread )

Anyway eventually a little nanny came all the way beside me, spotted me and the alarm was sounded with the heard making it up the slope at lightining speed  ;D ;D

kept following the heard on the ridge until as I was rounding a Banyon tree I spotted them coming down the valley floor, 2 solid Billys in the heard that was much more numerous, unfortunately as soon as they got to the bottom they immediately climbed the opposite slope.

Loved it, such a great hunt

I will be going again tomorrow morning

Here's a couple pictures of the valley,.....looks much nicer in the early morning soft light

Sounds like you had a good time. You'll get one, it's just a matter of patience and deciding on the right one.

Goats are smart, really smart, and have exceptionally good eyesight and a keen sense of smell. So yeah, if one spots you or gets wind of you and takes off the entire herd will bolt especially if the herd has been hunted before, even once.

Best of luck to you brother, and stay safe. The terrain looks a bit tricky in a couple of those pics.

Pictures don't do it justice, It's a beautiful valley with steep unclimbable ( unless you a goat ) sides, and yes big boulders everywhere make navigation interesting,......It's a ton of fun to hunt here :)
