Pope and Young Club Names New World Record Rocky Mountain Goat During Special Panel
 
On Saturday, February 15th, the Pope and Young Club convened a Special Panel of Judges in Chatfield, Minnesota, for a potential P&Y World Record Rocky Mountain Goat. Rosey Roselands' goat scored 53 2/8" and is now the largest bow-harvested Rocky Mountain Goat in North America. This amazing goat was shot on Revillagigedo Island in southeast Alaska, on October 3rd, 2019.

Measurers present at the Special Panel were 
(LtoR) Steve Ashley of Wisconsin, BuckyIhlenfeld of Wisconsin, P&Y Director of Records, Eli Randall, and Glenn Hisey of Minnesota. With a final score of 53 2/8", Rosey's Rocky Mountain Goat was confirmed as the new P&Y World Record. This goat surpasses the previous World Record shot by Shad Wheeler, taken in Kalum Lake, British Columbia, on February 16th, 2006, with a score of 53 0/8."

"I had been putting in for a limited draw permit for this area (Ketchikan 005) for about ten years." Said Rosey Roseland. "The area is known for its big goats and is fairly close to my home, POW Island. I was after a mature billy, so my wife and I scouted the area in July. On October 2nd, my friend from Montana, Matt Anderson and I backpacked into the area. Through the rain and fog, we spotted this goat bedded down and I could see that he had very big bases. Good enough, I decided. I was concentrating so hard on my stalk and my 20-yard shot, that I hardly looked at his horns. When we walked up on him, we knew he was big, but not World Record big."

"Upon viewing this Rocky Mountain Goat, it was evident that this was a special animal," said Eli Randall, Records Director for the Pope and Young Club. "World Record size animals are a testament to the success of the North American Model of Wildlife Conservation and is a credit to science-based conservation programs across North America. Congratulations to Rosey Roseland on harvesting this outstanding Rocky Mountain goat." 

You can see this incredible animal at the P&Y Annual Convention in Virginia, March 26th - 28th, as part of the Bass Pro/Cabela's Trophy Tower. The largest display of World Record, North American, bow-harvested, big-game animals ever assembled.

At the close of every biennial recording period, numerical awards and honorable mentions are awarded to the most outstanding bow-harvested animals in each species category that have been entered during this two-year recording period. New World Records are verified and proclaimed, and awards are presented to these outstanding animals during the Pope and Young Club's Biennial Convention and Awards Banquet.
