Nevada MRS: Mountain Goat

The population estimate for 2016 was 330 for a healthy population of Rocky Mountain goats, which translated to a miniscule 12 tags. The herd is still recovering from the 2009-10 die-off and according to the reports from NDOW we have the highest kid to adult ratio in unit 101 since that die-off. However, this is still much lower than the 27:100 ratio that was observed from 2003-2009. Obviously, at this rate we won’t be breaking any population records, but with a little luck the population will continue to grow and I can write about tag growth in a few years.
