Congratulation on a nice speed goat. What was your range, and weapon? Looks like a good hit in the boiler.
Thanks. I was shooting a Browning A Bolt in 7mag. I was using Hornady Custom Lite ammo so really, it was more like a 7mm-08 than a full 7mag. The range was just under 100 yards. I put the sneak on him using a Big Red Moo Cow decoy.
He was bedded down and all I could see were horns above the grass. It was windy as hell crosswind so I didn't want to risk a long shot. When I got inside 100 yards, the wind gusted and folded my decoy and exposed me right when he was looking right at me. He popped up but it was too late for him, I already had the crosshairs on him.
I kinda wish I would have used my old 30-30. That would have been cool but I'm not complaining.The guy at the check station scored him at 71 4/8". He ain't a monster but I'm happy as a clam.
