Wyoming MRS: Mountain Goat

Here’s a news flash for us all - Wyoming’s mountain goat population is exploding and believe it or not, we are actually seeing some monster billies in the Cowboy State. Although Wyoming is still not a mountain goat powerhouse like British Columbia or Alaska, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department has done a very good job at managing and expanding the very limited goat populations that the state does have. The goat habitat in Wyoming is somewhat limited and the overall size of the billies in Wyoming is not quite as good as the neighboring states of Montana and Utah. However, the records book entries for goats in Wyoming seem to be accelerating with time and I would now put Wyoming in the same category as Colorado and Idaho when it come to overall trophy quality. The costs to apply are steep and the odds of drawing a tag are even steeper in Wyoming. Nevertheless, Wyoming is still a very good place to hunt for a Lower 48 billy and the quality of the goat hunt here would be very high.
