Hunting Season 2014
Published: 8/26/2014 9:20:15 AM

Since retirement in 2013, I have not blogged. It's time to get back in the saddle.


I like to blog about many sports, even ones outside of high school. Hunting is one of them.  I drew for a mountain goat tag in 1991 in the Seven Devils Mountains.  He was a nice one but when I thought of Boone and Crockett, I thought it was out of the question

Fast forward to last Christmas.  I got on the B&C web page and scored my goat myself.  Much to my surprise, it said I made it.  So last week I had my goat officially scored by Rick Addington.  The bench mark is 47", and my goat scored 46 6/8", only 2/8" away!  He said that if I had scored it at day 60, which is the time one must wait for the drying period, I probably would have made it. Horns, which are not shed, shrink more than antlers, which are shed

Even though I was disappointed, it was my own fault.  It's still a good goat and his mount looks great in my man cave.  Here's a word to the wise...don't procrastinate like I did.  The scoring process is free and it's worth a shot at the record book.

Bow season starts Aug 30, and more of my hunting stories will follow.  And my brother and I were lucky enough to draw a cow moose tag in Eastern Idaho!
