Good news for hunters the numbers of mountain goats are increasing year after year. Not only are the goats increasing in number but also in range. The Wyoming Game and Fish granted 4 licenses to hunt the mountain goats in 1999. In 2005 officials increased the number to 8. And last year there were 12 tags available. If the heard of goats continue to grow and thrive, hunters will have a greater chance of getting a license.
