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!

I learned in 2017 that mountain goat hunting makes people do stuff they really don't want to do in real life. I didn't have to deal with any glaciers but there were cliffs involved.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Yea, put on the big boy pants, cause fear does zero good and stupidity helps.  The hikers thought we were rock climbers that had gotten stuck across the glacier for the night.  Watching from the other side, there were a couple times I was seriously concerned for D-Rock.  I waited until he had made it to the goat to cross the glacier.
A bad day out hunting is better than a good day at work!

Nicely done.  Glad to see you got yourself a nice  Billy.  Wouldn't surprise me if you're one of the last two guys to shoot a goat in that unit legally for many years to come...  Congratulations

Congrats!  That's so awesome.  A successful billy harvest is a success 100% of a time in goat country.  Glad everyone made it out safe.
