Karl Blanchard was on the hunt with my brother, he will tell the story since my brother is not a member. I opted to not go on the hunt last weekend. With me having had 4 heart attacks, I didn't want to slow them down if they needed to get across to some goats in a hurry. I was going to hunt with him this weekend if needed,  might have taken an extra day to get a critter out is all.  :chuckle:

Oh man, this sounds like an epic story! Can't wait to read it, especially with Karl telling it. Sounds like miles were hiked, sheer faces traversed, blood, sweat and tears for sure.

Knowing Karl it was probably a grueling back breaking pack out to.
