That was crazy steep. What a physically challenging hunt. It took until day 8 to get within range of a shooter billy. That had to be mentally tough as well.

Great video, thanks for sharing.

To say that was a total tough guy hunt would be an understatement.  Even way way back in the day when I was in peak shape, that would have been a huge stretch for me.  Simply an awesome hunt video👊💥👊

Uh no probably about it...

These guys were on a podcast, can't remember which one, a few weeks back.  Definitely worth listening to...you get a lot of the back story and description of the challenges they faced.

Anyone recall what podcast they were on?

What they eluded to in the podcast is that they wanted the film to cover and focus on the whole adventure and not just killing a goat.

Oh they defiantly covered the adventure in depth well for sure. Making a shot is for sure part of the adventure.
500+ yards if I remember from the video when I watched it this morning, in those conditions is always cool to see.

I figured the title of this thread was hyperbole, but...  yeah...  probably the best mtn goat hunt video I'll ever see. 

I can't even put into words how much I love that they glorified the struggle and the camaraderie and glossed over the kill shot and the shooting distance.  I loathe videos that climax at "lets watch this animal die" and "look how far I can shoot."

Thanks for posting!

I had tagged this for later, and I finally had the opportunity to watch it.  Wow.....That was a great video.  I spend a lot of time skiing steep stuff in the winter and up hilling that sort of terrain in snowshoes and crampons is beyond the stretch of my limits.  Thank you for sharing.
