JUSTIFICATION:

 

Aerial surveys during August 2010 indicated that the population in registration permit area

RG243 was 100 goats, and the population probably declined with heavy snow last winter.

The Department set the maximum allowable harvest at 3 goats. Current harvest is 3 billy

goats. Additional take beyond the harvest objective could harm the long-term stability of the

population.
