    Default Port Dick goat hunting experience?

    Anyone have any experience hunting the DG363 permit? Looking to talk to someone that has experience with that hunt.

    Are you traveling by boat to reach it?

    I did that hunt last year with my wife, she drew the tag so I was just along for the ride. We flew in Jose (Northwind Aviation) and she ended up shooting a nanny on the 3rd day of hunting. Lots of fun and a beautiful area for sure. I don't think I can pm but if you have an email I would be more than happy to fill you in on our experience

    I think I forgot to mention it when talking to you but be sure to get and use some crampons. I used the Kahtoola Alumium 10 point ones and my wife used the Kahtoola Microspikes. We wore them 90% of the time and they really helped keep your feet planted. Both can be picked up at Barneys. Also a walking axe was very handy to have, as well as good leather palmed gloves for the devils club in the rain forest.

    I will try and attach a video if our descent back through the forest so you can get an idea of just how thick the foliage is.

    Thanks for the info Matt. I'm going to go with the Katahoola 10pt crampons too. I used the hillsound trail crampons on a kodiak goat hunt once. There worked fine but did not hold up to well after awhile. That's some nasty brush to get through.

    I would go with the steel ones.
    Katahoola is the way to go.
    I wore mine 80% of the time.
