    unit 6 goats

    Me and my hunting partner hunted goats there last year and had a great time. We both shot our goats one in the first hr we were there and mine 24hrs later. But during the sturgis rally while i was out there my girlfriend and i went on a scouting/praire dog hunting mission. had a blast bu was a little concrened because we saw very litttle for goats. just wondering if that is the norm or has the draught drove them else where.

    I hunt area 6 every year. The goat population is going down quickly. If you looked at the quota for this year, there should have been about 200 leftover type 1 tags. Since the numbers are down, they did not sell any leftover tags in areas 6 or 7. They say its because of a couple diseases and the drought. There are still some goats around but the quality is down quite a bit. Some WIA's were taken out also. So if you hunt any of those you may want to check to see if they are still there.

    Yeah, you will have a good hunt and more than likely will fill your tags just as fast as you did last year. Just find a waterhole and you are in the money!

    Got a couple of family members hunting Unit 6 I believe. Going with rifle, not bow. They have 2 of my young cousins, and they wanted to go with the rifle. The ranch they are hunting on said they have not seem much for goats all summer. A few, but not many. But those herds can move around.....hope there are some there for them!

    You guys going with the bow? I would like to try that someday. Maybe when my 4 year old son gets older we will try the blind / waterhole thing.

    Good Luck guys!
