    would a billy goat still go into rut and pee on himself even without a nannie around?

    Yes, it is just what a buck goat does. He will always expect a doe to appear at any time, so he must be at his maximum smelliness at all times during the fall.

    If you want a non stanky male goat, I'd suggest wethering.
