A mountain goat's wool coat is white, an adaptation that helps it hide from predators by blending in with its snowy environment. It sheds its coat, or pelage, each summer. Mountain goats' major predators are mountain lions, gray wolves and brown bears. Enterprise, OR () Today. Sunshine and clouds mixed. High 43F. Winds light and variable.

Aspects of mountain goat ecology, Wallowa Mountains, Oregon. Population models designed to hypothetically reconstruct the development of the Wallowa Mountains goat population were used to illustrate that low productivity rather than a high rate of mortality may be responsible for the current tenuous status of the population.

ASPECTS OF MOUNTAIN GOAT ECOLOGY, WALLOWA MOUNTAINS, OREGON I. INTRODUCTION This study was designed to determine the status of the mountain goat population in the Wallowa Mountains, Oregon, and to examine their year-long Aspects of mountain goat ecology style with emphasis on the winter period.

Special attention was given to evaluating potential limiting factors. Eastern Oregon now boasts a strong mountain goat population, with about half of the mountain goats statewide found in the Elkhorn Mountains near Baker City.

thesis titled "Aspects of Mountain Goat Ecology, Wallowa Mountains, Oregon." Mike found that ap- proximately 77 percent of the total goat population wintered on a rocky escarpment on the west face of Saca- jawea Mountain, a peak that reaches 9, feet above sea level.

The goats were observed feeding on the barren. Features: The mountain goat is stockily built with black scimitar-shaped horns, large black hooves and prominent dewclaws, and an entirely white, woolly coat. Habitat: Rocky Mountain goats are found in steep and rugged habitat in eastern Oregon, including the Wallowa, Elkhorn and Strawberry mountains, and the central Cascades near Mt Jefferson.

The largest populations are in the Wallowa and Elkhorn mountains, but trips to Mount Jefferson or to the Goat Rocks Wilderness in southern Washington are. Series Hunt Descriptions.

Archaeologists are regularly faced with the dilemma of determining if the absence of a class of item is the result of that class never having been present in an area or if its absence is the result of sample deficiencies.

This dilemma is especially apparent when a class of item is rare and has a patchy distribution. Comparison of samples that lack specimens of the class with samples that have.

8, hunters applied for one of Oregon's Rocky Mountain goat tags in One of the lucky eight was year-old Darrel Ries, a chiropractor from Bend, Oregon.

With three months to get ready, Paulina Peak, in central Oregon, became his training ground. The three-mile hike gains 2, feet, close to what he was likely to encounter in goat country. This book offers the first comprehensive assessment of the ecology and behavior of mountain goats, setting forth the results of a remarkable year longitudinal study of more than marked individuals in a population in Alberta, s: 3.

Mountain goats are found in the alpine and subalpine habitats throughout the British Columbian and south Alaskan coast. They are scattered in the Rocky Mountains as well (figure 3). Some of those areas include isolated populations in Colorado, Wyoming, South Dakota, Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Montana, Yukon, and Alberta.

The mountain goat (Oreamnos americanus), also known as the Rocky Mountain goat, is a hoofed mammal endemic to North America.A subalpine to alpine species, it is a sure-footed climber commonly seen on cliffs and ice. Despite its vernacular name, it is not a member of Capra, the genus that includes all other goats, such as the wild goat, Capra aegagrus, from which the domestic goat is derived.

Cascades are very minimal. However, Aikens () reports mountain goat remains at the Wildcat Canyon archaeological site, approximately 28 miles (45 km) upstream from The Dalles, on the Oregon side of the Columbia River.

The type of mountain goat remains discovered indicates they were used as food items and not ceremonial purposes.The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife documented a collared goat from Northeast Oregon’s Wallowa Mountains crossing the Columbia River and moving to the Central Washington Cascade Mountains.

Despite their reluctance to cross open valleys, it’s clear that some goats will travel.harvest of mountain goats occurred in Oregon. In the goat season reopened in the Wallowa and Elkhorn Mountains with one goat tag issued in each area. Annual hunting seasons continue with 2 tags issued in each area duringand persons applying for these tags.
