    Eagle vs "Mountain Goat"

    Pretty impressive clip, love how the "mountain goat's" buddy has got his back the whole way.

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Bloody hell they are ballsy. I would have thought it would have taken on a young one but no, straight to a fully grown adult. Bird got banged up a fair bit as well.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Haha yes I had to smile when I saw it labelled as a goat, one of the guys here on the farm had to point out that it must be a goat since the media said so, my staff know I hate them calling chamois "goats", it's kind of a running joke around here, me:"I'm not going to be available on the phone for a couple of days, I'm going for a look for a chamois" Them: "you're going goat hunting?" Smart asses

    If you look at the end of the video, there is a second eagle ( probably the male, which would be smaller)flying just above them.
