Don’t shoot the kid! NSW feral goat hunt
S01 E01 The Australian Huntsman

I’ve head some people say that goats are easy pickings, but I enjoy the challenge of getting up real close, taking my time & picking out my ideal target from a herd. Something that is much harder with a flighty species like deer. When the animal is more forgiving I’ve found you can moderate the difficulty of your hunt by taking bigger chances, increasing your satisfaction when you bring one down.

Recently my freezer was looking a little empty so I headed up to the beautiful northern tablelands of NSW in the hopes of bagging a meat goat or two & boy was it fun! Ended up going with my mate Dwayne from Wild Safari leveraging his knowledge of the area which proved to be vital.

After spending the first day scouting on day two I managed to bag 2 nannies for the freezer. Got a head shot on the first, but nicked the larger nanny on her back leg as she sprang behind a tree right as I took my shot. I followed her blood trail and managed to find her bedded down. Things got a bit dicey when I realised she had a kid with her who refused to leave. After a bit of waiting I got a clear neck shot on the nanny and brought her down with the kid running off to join the rest of the herd.
