All right I have to admit I never thought about using an ice axe for sheep/goat hunting. It sounds perfect, I use trekking poles but an ice axe gives you so many more options.
I have a few questions though. How tall of ones are people using. I know it depends on height but I am sure people have their own preference too. Any one out there 6'3" that uses on one any opinions.
Is there any difference in quality between the major brands?
Are the collapsible ones any good?
Are the ones Barneys sells the only ones to get?
I like to do as much research as possible so you will not overwhelm me with info. I also learn from others mistakes, so if there is something you didnt like about them or a particular brand please let me know. The side of a mountain 20 miles in is not the place to find a defect in item I carry.
Thanks in advance for any info you can provide.
