We started the trip off Friday afternoon by driving to the trailhead and car camping.  I had 2 friends and my daughter committed on going in for 4 days and 1 friend just for the weekend.  We hit the trail head shortly after daylight and spent a few hours hiking up to camp.  On the way up the trail i got stung by a bee on the eyelid popped a couple benadryl and called it good.  That afternoon after we got camp set we were able to move out to glassing spot.  We turned up 4 or 5 goats including "super nanny" under a waterfall and a 1 horned unicorn.  1 billy a long way off we tried to get closer to that afternoon but had to get across a basin and into the next but couldn't come up with a safe route in time to get there before dark.  My eye seemed fine most of the day until about 1:30 in the morning when I woke up and it was almost swollen shut.

Sunday morning we got up before daylight made coffee and started glassing goats from camp.  We turned up 3 goats in 1 basin me and a buddy went to get a closer look at while my daughter and 2 other buddies went to check the other basin.  We determined 2 of the goats we went to check out were Billy's both bedded about 200 yards apart the bigger of the two bedded on the left side smaller of the two on the right.  I decided to try a stock coming straight up the bottom below the goats out of sight from the bench they were bedded on.  First I had to cross about 300 yards of glacier to even get below the goats.  The goats were bedded just below the upper glacier in picture.

As I made my approach from the bottom the smaller goat got up from his bed and looked down towards me so I hunkered down until he went out of sight again.  I kept creeping up and goat popped up on my left side about 200 yards straight up.  I got on the gun and touched one off seeing blood on his shoulder almost instantly I made a quick off hand follow up shot on the run hitting him back as he trucked across the hill before loosing sight of him.  Goat of course ran to the left witch was the spot we didn't want him to go.  I climbed up the cliffs above were goat went but was unable to see goat but it was enough to pressure him into getting up and move down out of the cliffs were we couldn't have recovered him if he died.  He finally tumbled down the cliffs to his resting place.  1st shot ended up being to far forward on a quartering away shot come in on the shoulder and exiting the neck.  2nd shot went in hind quarter and I don't think exited.  At this point I didn't know if goat was alive or dead until I hiked back down the cliffs and discovered him piled up about 200 yards to my right below the cliffs in the shale.
