    Nanny. Fairly straight horn with curved tips. A billy typically has a more gentle curve through the entire length of the horn.

    Definitely nanny. Agree with UH, very straight horns with curve near the tip.

    It's definitely a nanny. You have heard the saying "nanny, nanny, nanny goat, can't catch a billy goat"? Do you see a second goat in the picture? Therefore it is a nanny.

    I would say nanny because of the other wise straight horn with slight curve at the top.

    I would agree, Nanny Tall horns but not much mass at the base. Too much room in between them. I've never hunted them, but this is great practice! I just found out I drew a AK Mt. Goat hunt, Yee Haw!
