Globe-record mountain goat shot with bow in Alaska by Kansas native

  • Northeast Kansas indigenous Kaleb Baird shoots planet-file mountain goat in Alaska
  • Goat’s horns measure 53 4/8 inches on Pope and Young scale
  • Earlier globe-report goat established just 10 months prior

A Council Grove native who took down a mountain goat previously this slide in southeast Alaska can now lay claim to a earth record.

Kaleb Baird, 33, a Council Grove Higher School graduate, shot the massive billy goat on Sept. 11 of this calendar year. On Dec. 5, the Pope and Young Club convened a unique panel of judges in Prescott, Ariz., to measure the probable globe file, and the judges scored the goat at 53 4/8 inches, generating it the most significant bow-harvested mountain goat in North The us by just two-eighths of an inch.

The previous file was established just 10 months prior, on Feb. 15, by fellow Alaskan Rosey Roseland. Roseland’s goat was taken on Revillagigedo Island in Alaska and measured 53 2/8 inches formally.

“Congratulations to Kaleb Baird on his incredibly exclusive Rocky Mountain Goat, and the Pope and Young Club’s new Earth Record,” Eli Randall, director of information for the Pope and Young Club, claimed in a information launch soon immediately after Baird’s record goat was scored.
