    I was just wandering in the hunting guide it lists non-native cervid and non-domesticated bovid in the open all year section. Is there really a population of sheep, goats, or other exotics free ranging somewhere in KY.? If so what and where are they located? Just curious other than Fallow Deer I was not aware of any.

    A long time ago there was a island full of goats out in Barkley lake. I had a friend go out and shoot one off there.
     
  4. back in the late 70's,I saw a mule deer killed in Gallatin County.Guess they would count as non-native also?

    I have walked up on the same goat in Pennyrile State Forest the last three seasons. In the same area also.

    I've heard it tastes like chicken, shogan. lol..... Domestic goat has a porky taste to me. Never eaten wild goat though.

    Compound bow: $150-$500
    Treestand: $100-300
    Clothes, boots, cover scent, all other accesories: $250 (I'm cheap)

    Openening day of bow season: PRICELESS

    goat is really pretty good. I ate some of it in Haiti. Has a unique taste, meat is a bit tough.

    I had the same experience as Hammer in Mexico. I thought it was pretty good.

    I never found out. I was pre-season scouting along this ridge and worked myself out on a point. On the end of it was this bedded billy. We were at a stand off for what seemed like 10 minutes. I ended up picking up a stick and throwing at him. He dropped down on his butt and slid about 25 ft. off of the point. And never missed a step. The last time I saw him was during the quota hunt. 1 1/2 miles is too far to drag a goat.
