GREAT FALLS – The Montana Governor’s mountain goat tag was auctioned off this weekend and it went for a record $60,500.

The Great Falls chapter of Safari Club International held its annual banquet on Saturday.

It was the 10th year they have auctioned off the Governor’s tag for a Montana mountain goat.

Ninety percent of the auction proceeds go back to Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks.

Last year, the tag sold for $30,000, but this year was a new record.

Over the years the auction has raised about $208,000 for FWP.
