Spanish Goats, also known as brush goats or scrub goats, have a varied color pattern, long legs, and are usually horned. Historically, they were bred for meat and to clear brush, which differentiates them from other breeds mainly raised for milk or wool.
While they originally hail from Spain, these goats are now predominantly found in the southern United States, especially in Texas.
Adapted to a range of conditions, Spanish Goats thrive in scrubby, brushy areas where they can graze and browse.
Hunting regulations and seasons vary by location, so it's essential to check local laws. In some regions, feral goats can be hunted year-round.
Spot and stalk techniques are effective due to the goats' tendency to graze and roam. Observing from a high vantage point and then moving in quietly is often successful.
As with most game, a shot to the heart-lung area behind the shoulder ensures a humane kill. Given their size, a medium-caliber rifle or a bow can be effective.
Spanish Goat meat is lean and flavorful, often described as being less gamey than wild game but with a distinct taste different from domestic goat meat.
Their alert nature and keen senses make them aware of hunters, and they often inhabit rugged terrains, making the approach challenging at times.
Trophy assessment is usually based on the size, symmetry, and overall appearance of the horns. The thicker and longer the horns, the more prized the trophy.
