Congrats.
I'm curious what crampons you use and if they would work well in steep frozen scree with snow over it?
Are they comfortable?

Made some room- been full for over a year looks like😂

I use camp frost crampons. Generally crampons do not work well In rocky stuff. They are a game changer in steep timber and meadows. they are tolerable but not comfortable (no real crampon I've tried is very comfortable) spots where terrain eases up I definately take them off.

I respect the hell out of big blacktails, hate them, but respect them. They are the hardest animal to hunt, smart creatures.  To stick with it like you do is really rare, hunting big black tails gets frustrating to say the least, itís too easy to give up. Iíve hunted them for 30+ years and have only killed a couple that I consider big, one I missed has your same thick crab claws, found his drops after the season and mounted them. Congrats again, like everyone has said, thanks for sharing. Huge accomplishment !!
