Doug Koenig’s Championship Season: Scottish Goat Hunt


Hamburg, PA., – In this week’s episode, it’s the conclusion of the NRA World Shooting Championship match. Doug, along with many of the top guns of the sport are hoping to ace the twelve stages which represent all the major shooting disciplines. With each stage worth 250 points for a total score of 3,000 it’ll be a close call to see who will claim top honors.

Then, Doug takes to the skies for a trip to the western shores of Scotland and revisits with third generation Head Stalker and Sport Manager Niall Rowantree of West Highland Hunting. As part of a goat management plan on the surrounding islands of the hunting estate, Doug sets out for a long-horned feral goat with his TC Pro Hunter Muzzleloader. Making way up a steep rocky hillside covered with heather and gale winds blowing sideways, it’ll be a challenge to hold steady and take that trophy shot. Tune in to see more of this beautiful Scottish Highlands hunt.
