Been thinking it's getting close!  Can't wait to see what you drum up!

At this point, it's getting complicated logistically. I'm hoping to drum up a mature billy. Snow is a thing and getting me snowed out makes me really, really nervous.

Getting snowed out early this year is s real possibility. Where is all this global warming.  :chuckle:

Jack,
You might want to consider calling Kent.
He might be able to get you in position for a couple of days.
He might have accommodations up there he and you could use between muzzy and riffle.
He knows where a Billy is.
Just a thought.
No regrets.

I don't know why he's worried. :dunno: hes a billionaire mod, he could just take his chopper to the top and get dropped off and flown out after he's had his team of "moss back guides" cut and pack out his billy. :chuckle:

Understandable.  As mentioned, this system looks like a squall, then solid weather for a bit.
It will all pan out.

I'm feeling really good about the next 4 days. I'll be up where the goats live when the weather breaks. Hoping it all comes together this weekend. Mother Nature has really put the screws to the Goat Rocks tagholders this year. Feeling like this will be a good weekend for us.

Best of Luck!
