Thanks for posting James! Just returned from hunting mountain goats on Kodiak Island. Not sure why a guy my age wanted to go on another goat hunt after taking two on previous hunts with single-shot handguns. Mental instability perhaps. I was hunting a two goat area with only one billy permitted. Getting in revolver range of mountain goats in the high alpine is challenging, not to mention the climbing involved. The billy was taken from 61 yards, the nanny at 58 yards. The FA Model 83 in .44 Mag. with Hornady's 240 gr. XTP performed well.

If you're looking for adventure -- and a real challenge, hunting mountain goats with a revolver will do the trick.

getting that close to two goats has to be an adventure in itself.... very few have done what you did... Amazing...

Wow, beautiful trophy's. That terrain must have been really tough to move through let alone sneak up on something.
