Hello all. I had a question IRT Mtn Goat Equipment. As a first timer who has finally drawn a goat tag, I am wondering what kind of gear most of you experts take along. As I researched my area, I read more than a few threads that recommended carrying the ice axe that extends into a trekking pole. Rope (about 175 ft)was also mentioned to possibly help in retrieving a goat. The in-step crampons were also mentioned. I would assume that most gear that works for a sheep hunt will also work just fine for goats.
What other kind of specialized gear would you recommend?
I appreciate any help you choose to give.
