1 friend came across after I got to goat and we packed out all the meat coming down in the cliffs and crossing glacier in the dark getting back to camp about 1030 that night.  The next morning I hiked back up to get hide and some gear I left the night before while the others hiked camp and meat down to the trailhead where I met them.

Pack out crew with the cold successful celebratory beers.  Was pretty cool to have my daughter along on the hunt and to see her crush it in some tough country.

Congrats again. Amazing experience
People get offended at nothing at all. So, speak your mind and be unapologetic.

Congrats, Darren! That looks like a good sized billy. Can you share some measurements?

turns out I shot the smaller of the two Billy's after the small one saw me he cut across and came under the bigger billy still bedded and I shot the smaller of the two thinking it was the bigger of the two.

Rough measurements have it at about 8 1/8-8 1/4 long and about 5 inch base.

First of all, Congrats!  Secondly, thanks for letting me come along and making me cross a glacier in the dark.  The look on the hiker's faces yesterday were priceless.  Lastly, your daughter is a savage, she really stepped up so we didn't have to come back up the mountain!
A bad day out hunting is better than a good day at work!

Congrats man. Goat hunting is tuff stuff. Super stoked you got to share it with your daughter. That adds so much more to the experience than any amount of inches can. Congratulations on a great hunt. You will always have found memories as you look at your trophy on the wall.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.
