In March 2017, we presented on plans to translocate Mountain Goats (Oreamnos
americanus) from the Olympic Peninsula to selected portions of the North Cascades (primarily on US Forest Service-administered lands).
No aspect of pursuing Oreamnos
americanus comes without paying a price, and choosing to do it with archery gear adds exponentially to the challenge.
canadensis infections in wolves, elk, mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus), and a mountain goat (Oreamnos
americanus) in Idaho and Montana; however, the specific genotypes (G8 or G10) were not delineated.
Horn growth in mountain goats (Oreamnos
Bradway et al., "Evidence for persistent Bovine viral diarrhea virus infection in a captive mountain goat (Oreamnos
americanus)," Journal of Veterinary Diagnostic Investigation, vol.
(2015) found higher concentrations of toxaphene in liver of mountain goats (Oreamnos
americanus) (n = 3, 54 [+ or -] 47 ng/g lw) from the Mackenzie Mountains west of the Dehcho region; however, P26, P50, and P62 were also <MDLs.
The Rocky Mountain goat is purely a North American animal, Oreamnos
americanus, a genus with one species and no identified subspecies.
Other ungulates in the study area included mule deer, white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus), mountain goats (Oreamnos
americanus), and elk (Cervus elaphus).

The species considered big game are Alces alces, Anser albifrons, Anser fabalis, Antilocapra americana, Bos bison, Branta canadensis, Branta hutchinsii, Canis lupus, Canis rufus, Cervus canadensis, Chen caerulescens, Chen canagica, Chen rossii, Lynx canadensis, Lynx rufus, Meleagris gallopavo, Odocoileus hemionus, Odocoileus virginianus, Oreamnos
americanus, Ovibos moschatus, Ovis canadensis, Puma concolor, Rangifer tarandus, Ursus americanus, and Ursus arctos.
Caribou remains dominate, but isolated elements of wood bison, moose, sheep, wapiti, and goat (Oreamnos
americanus) have also been identified to this point (D.
Hunter harvests or populations of bighorn sheep (Ovis Canadensis), mountain goats (Oreamnos
americanus), or antelope (Antilopra americana) would not be affected.
