Hunt las the Wild Meat. The White Goat or Rocky Mountain Goat as it indiscriminately called, is a species of game rarely hunted by sportsmen. This is not so much because of the difficulty of killing the animal, nor because of its actual rarity. It is a stupid animal, easily shot when once found. It i« not, however, found in the usual hunting grounds, aa are bear, deer, elk, etc. It is remote from the common looalitiee, but where found is in goodly numbers. It ranges very high up in the mountains, above timber line usually, among rooks and cliffs. This requires great labor to get to it,but onoe there the hunter will get his gam# nine times out of ten.
