    Default Plan B worked.

    Well after our caribou hunt fell through, we ended up going over to Kodiak for a week. My buddy that lives in Wasilla has the rg480 2 goat registration tag this year. He has a trip planned in October with some other guys, but figured we would go try to gather one and some blacktail bucks.


    Scored some good weather for the first two days and knocked down a couple of animals. Then the weather set in and we spent the rest of the trip in the tent eating mountain house, sipping whiskey, and listening to the weather blow up. I didn't fill any tags, but I'll be going back some time to settle the score. When the weather is nice, that place is a target rich environment.

    Seriously! I've been keeping my eyes on a couple goats for a possible October hunt, and the one thing that has me second guessing it is the terrain. Seeing this picture...sheesh, I can only dream!

    Congratulations on a fine hunt!

    I was thinking the same thing. Including the part about "goats in that kind of country". Wow, grassy (big?) hill.. Heck there's at least 'rock' showing in the blacktail pic.
    Congrats. Must have been an enjoyable hunt.
    Your sarcasm is way, waaaayyyyyyyy more sarcastic than mine!

    Thanks everybody for the congrats. I will say the pictures of the goat is only where he ended up. He was on a very steep rocky knife ridge where we killed him. He fell/rolled/slid about 1000 feet down. There is a small flat spot at the top of that grassy ridge we thought he would have stopped on, but he kept on going. Definitely not the worst terrain ever to kill a goat in though.

    Ahhh....the rest of the story. I wondered if that was the case.

    And good luck fellas, be safe out there chasing the goats.

    Probably staitng the obvious, but watch that wet/iced speed-grass. It looks harmless, but that stuff is treacherous. I did a slide a couple weeks ago that broke a Leki pole and almost busted me up....
