    I am also really curious about this. Also, can people estimate how much their pack weighs with all their gear so I can get a rough estimate. I need to sit down and weigh all my gear and see where I'm at!

    2012 Had several sick gear lists. Do a quick search.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    That alpine vegetation is like walking on ice especially when wet then you add steep slopes and it can be extremely dangerous... Walking axe and crampons ar a must for me.. Just not toe picks on the crampons so you can still kick in your boots to get a bite...

    I went goat hunting once in Impertech. After that I ran home and bought Kuiu rain gear. Once of my best purchases ever. Never ever again will I mountain hunt in impertech.

    Here is my list I use. I havent gone through and edited it for goat exactly. But I would do a base camp and plan to spike. That way you have amentities and comfort if you get rained in. You should narrow the scope of this post with your plans. It's a lot different if you're flying out and hunting within a bowl of the strip, hiking in 15-20 miles a day, using an ATV. Also, where are you? I plan different for Kodiak as oppose to a different area. But, you can have my list and take things out. Water, food, warmth and first aid is most important. I agree; crampons are a must!!!!

    Some quick tips; go mountain house with a jet boil, I bring one of those ace wraps in case if I blow a joint out, fruit is high in energy, platypus water bottles for space and weight, split the tent up, wiggies sleeping bag, HH for rain, Poly layers for base

    I have Patagonia rain gear, about $200 for the set. I go the extra mile and treat it before the hunt with nik wax. It's always done the job. But I have yet to actually wear it yet on my last two hunts.
