goat is one of the most plentiful as well as widely hunted of the Texas
exotics. The Catalina supposedly originated in Spain and was imported
by pirates and turned loose on Catalina Island off the coast of California
for meat when they returned to the island from their voyages. This figured
in their common name of Catalina.
These animals can be nearly any color, but will usually be some combination
of black, brown, white, or reddish brown. Large males will weigh up to
175- 180 pounds, with females tipping the scales at 80-90 pounds. A trophy
Billy has horns that grow in large twists, up and back and out. This is
usually one of the animals that hunters start out on when they start hunting
