Goat Man Caption Contest

Submit a caption for the "Goat Man" picture and you could win a copy of Jackson Landers' new book, "Eating Aliens."

When pictures of a man dressed as a goat crawling around a Utah mountainside made headlines in July, the national media had a free-for-all as America began asking, “Who is Goat Man?”

The mystery was short-lived, however, when it was reported to authorities that “Goat Man” is actually a 57-year-old hunter from California who was testing a technique he hoped would put him within bow range of a big billy during the upcoming season. Ingenious!

While getting a goat is no laughing matter, we believe the cartoon above needs a good, clean caption. Think you've got a good one in mind? Good, because it's time for a giveaway.

If you think you have a caption worthy of online publication, submit it using the comment form below. If your entry is selected as the best of the bunch you'll receive a copy of Eating Aliens, a new book from Jackson Landers that details some of the best ways to cook and eat invasive species such as feral hogs and snakehead fish.
