    Depends where i am and other factors, if culling then i only take the legs, if wanting meat for a bbq/spit roast i take the whole thing.

    If i have time i carry them back to the ute gutted and give them to my solomon islander contractors that help in the orchard.

    I made them a crappy old spit roaster out of 44 gal/ 200l drums, they light the manuka firewood in it and roast up the goat most fridays when thinning/picking on the orchards, they really like goat roasted up over the fire

    Oh and we have roast goat for dinner, yum yum

    And those type of workers (imports from less well off countries)usually appreciate the work also. Not like a portion of the local workforce.
    As far as the goats go, I agree with what someone said earlier(Mickey Duck I think) cook it like mutton. I'm not keen on curry or to many herbs, unless the meat is second rate to start with.
    And I would have stomped on the hedgehog too.

    I have to confess to leaving hundreds for the wild cats & pigs to feast on. I've taken a few for slow roasting or a bit of a curry that my mate brews up when we are out culling on a high country property, done on an old coal range back at the hut....awesome. I always think what a bloody waste it is but for us its search & destroy when we are doing this for the cocky.
    Do also take some retrievable ones for dog tucker for us and the cocky but a lot are aerial burial when they plummet off the bluffs, tenderized a bit much for my stomach

    tough to beat cooked on a coal range . .. get it nice and hot, quick fry up in the cooker with some onions, throw in some curry n veg, slow cook for the day in the oven for an amazing casserole served on some rice.

    The following is the roast recipe for legs we've been using of late and they taste really good and the wine keeps everything nice and moist and tender. To finish last 10-15 min's we spoon the liquor back over the leg and it browns up for a bit of extra flavor on the outer.

    Be interested to see what you think of it too - It's become our go to recipe recently.

    Ingredients

    Ingredients

    1 leg of goat
    4 tablespoons of finely chopped garlic
    4 sprigs of rosemary
    1 teaspoon salt
    6 bay leaves
    cup olive oil
    1 onion, finely chopped
    bottle white wine
    4-6 medium potatoes, cut in quarters
    Method

    Method

    Preheat the oven to 200C

    In a pan brown the onions lightly with some of the olive oil.

    Mix the remainder of the olive oil, salt and garlic and onto goat meat.

    Place the meat into a deep oven dish with the browned onions, bay leaves and rosemary sprigs.

    Add the white wine, quartered potatoes and cover the dish with foil.

    Place in the oven and leave for 1 hours. Remove the foil after 1 hours and leave the meat in the oven for approx another 30 min, or until nice and brown.

    Went out this morning and got my first goat, the bush was really thick so could not get onto another two I could hear but not see, found a big billy that someone must have shot and lost, looked like it may have been on Sunday still pretty fresh.

    Neat having an extra day off today

    Our phillipino tree pruning crew like goat meat and a txt from them was all the prompt i needed to get out of the house

    Taking the wifes rifle seemed a good choice, 7mm08 and a 140bt@2930fps and suppressed, great on Goats.

    All i needed was a nice secluded gully head with grassy clearings


    And some manuka/kanuka clad slopes where they feel safe


    Found these guys and had a wee chat with them about growing up big n strong and tasty


    Their camo skills need refining


    Plenty of fresh sign around kept me moving

    Bleating from lower down had me leave the steep and ninja along the flat


    Spotting them through the trees i crept into position.


    Job tidy and time for a pic


    Petit backsteaks


    A handy tree branch holds the protein


    Nothing wasted


    With the guys loaded up like 5ft sherpas we made our way back to the ute before darkness set in

    2 t spoon Italian herbs
    1 t spoon smoked paprika
    2 Tbl spoon flour
    Salt and a splash of olive oil.
    In the slow cooker for about 7 hours on low.

    Served with rice, fresh veg and a nice home made loaf of wholemeal bread. If you haven't tried the "no kneed bread" method of making bread I seriously recommend you give it a go.
    The above fed 6 and I have just enough left over for lunch tomorrow.

    Question: Why do you bother carrying out the full leg with all the added weight of the bone and skin? Personally I carry a heavy gauge of plastic bag and bone out the meat in the field. That way it comes home nice and clean and you don't have another job to do when you get home, or have to dispose of the bone/skin.
    Used this recipe last night and its seriously good.

    Time to get more Goats
