    If you damping the horn it may help them stand out, or hold your thump on the curve of the horn with the nail down as you come down the horn it will stop in the annuli
    you can then follow around the horn to make sure there true does get harder on goats as you get closer to the base for as you mentioned they get so close. Have seen
    them with rot around the whole base as well so makes it pretty much imposable so then must rely on the tooth, but in saying that have had different ages come back
    on teeth before as well

    That truly was a Great read !! Thanks for taking the time out to share the adventure and the pics. I have an infatuation with Mountain Goats. Very Cool Animals. Good job on anchoring that Billy where he was. If i was pulling the trigger again on a Goat it would be the shoulders and not behind the shoulder. They seem to want to do that Launch over the Cliff if you don't.

    Wicked old goat. Congrats again.

    I’m with LBM and comfortably count to 12 with what’s visible. Not sure where the 8 even came from.

    Thanks for the comments guys.

    I'll be honest... I am no seasoned goat hunter, and lay this on luck! I guess its like landing a 50 lb spring salmon on your first trip to the ocean. I had no clue the significance of that goat, and likely many others much more deserving that I to harvest it.

    Thanks.

    I know it looks easy to see the annuli from the first picture, but it sure is harder in person, maybe it's the light in the picture. It was also more difficult to age at time of CI. The person who conducted the CI knows goats, studied goats, and likely one of the most knowledgeable on coastal goats around.

    He didn't age it at 8, he did say 8+ because he just couldn't verify.
