They were both taken about 5 miles apart, on my grandfathers ranch in Cherry Co. There isn't a lot of goats there but seem to be some nice ones more and more each season. The whitetail population pretty much exploded the last few years, I really don't like to see that cause they seem to be taking over, but if they will get this big I will take it. I grew up hunting mule deer and have only shot a handfull of whitetails. Funny how a guy who hunts mule deer would have a whitetail as his biggest deer.

I hear ya about the whitetails. They are taking over our mulie population on the ranches we hunt. Quite sad. I love chasing mule deer anyday over a whitetail!

Nice animals, Been seeing the whitetail take over myself in the northwest part of the state the last few years.

thanks, I really don't think there will be a solution for the whitetails either, My dad told me a lot of the whitetails he seen last summer had twins and some triplets, the coyote population is strong but they have mange really bad and I think this cold winter was hard on them. I have purchased many doe only tags and shot only whitetails but they are hard to even get a crack at out in the open country. I remember about 25 years ago when I thought it was kinda cool to see a whitetail cause you never seen them. My thoughts have changed about that. But for now the mulies are hanging in there and have seen some nice ones for next season. A 180 plus is always on the top of my list. They are few and far between in Nebraska.

There is always quite a few 180+ taken in the Chadron area every year on public, but finding them and with every other Tom, Dick and Harry is problem, But we will keep trying. Good luck to you.

Thanks, yeah, I got him scored by a Boone and Crockett official measurer. He is 174 1/8 gross and 170 4/8 net. Just enought to make the all time book. I'm still awaiting acceptance by B&C. Same as the goat, he scored 82 4/8, awaiting acceptance with him also. They told me it usually takes several months though, so I gotta just be patient. And yes both animals are going on the wall!

Very nice animals. I wish we had a few whiteys around here to hunt, for two reasons 1. I have only hunted them once (killed a small 9 point in Montana) but the best reason 2. Man do they taste good compared to a muley, I love to eat em!
