World Record Mountain Goat

The new B&C world record mountain goat was taken by Troy Sheldon in British Columbia.

The former world record mountain goat was actually a tie between two British Columbia goats, one taken in 1949 and the other in 1999. Both scoring 56-6/8. The new World Record mountain goat surpassed the old mark by a substantial 6/8 of an inch. It is the largest of its species ever recorded, according to the Boone and Crockett Club.

Troy M. Sheldon of Alexandria, KY tagged out on the seventh day of mountain goat hunting in the Stikine River area of British Columbia. He used a Tikka T3 .270 WSM to make a perfect 319-yard shot across a ravine. Following a required drying period and initial scoring, a special Boone and Crockett judge’s panel verified the goat’s official entry score as a new World’s Record.


Since 1906, the Boone and Crockett Club’s scoring system has been used to measure the success of conservation programs across North America. The system rewards antler and horn size and symmetry-classic symbols of outstanding habitat, strong recruitment of animals into older age classes, sustainable harvest objectives and other elements of sound wildlife management and fair-chase hunting.

British Columbia is the Gold Standard when it comes to trophy mountain goats.

When it comes to quality, mountain goat hunting in British Columbia is as good as it gets. “British Columbia continues to set the standard for Rocky Mountain goats,” said Eldon Buckner, chairman of Boone and Crockett Club’s Records of North American Big Game Committee. “The province remains home to more than half of the world’s population and trophy-class specimens have been trending upward each decade since the 1970s. That testifies to the professionalism of the British Columbia Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations.”
