The very last day of my stay at Wilderness Quest I really wanted to get a feral goat but we had a bunch of filming to do for the American Huntress TV show and it really wasn't looking good. We managed to get it all done thanks to the lovely "one take Linda" and set out mid-afternoon, it wasn't till almost dark that I got my goat. He was at 41 yards when I shot him with the crossbow and made a great heart shot. He just might be the new world number one with a crossbow!! He kind of looks like a Texas longhorn but I love him anyways!
