    Anythingalaska - did you have blisters?

    Thanks for sharing the photos and congrats on your goat!
    Thanks for the replies everyone! Yeah wearing the Xtra Tuffs wasn't exactly planned on. I had brought my hiking boots, but once I got out of the boat and ready to put them on, I realized I had forgotten my liners. There's no way I was going to wear them without the liners, so I wore the Xtra Tuffs instead. We hiked around 18 miles with a total elevation change of around 7000'. Strangely enough, I didn't have a single blister when I got home. They actually handled a lot better than I thought they would have, although I would never choose them, or recommend anyone do so for a goat hunt. As everyone knows, packing a heavy load on a downhill slippery slope is where Xtra Tuffs truly shine (not!).

    I packed out the hide on this goat. It actually had a considerably nice coat for only being September, and it seemed like a waste not to!

    Nice work, those hides look great! Im headed out in a couple weeks and those hides look encouraging. I am not so much of a fan of the super long dreded out hides I like them a little softer, and I was wondering how they were going to look after this cooler summer. BBQ goat, damm I just drooled on my keyboard.

    Trip of a lifetime. While it is still fresh in your mind, I would recommend that you write the story so you can re live the event in later years :-)

    Nice job! I especially like that second picture where those two goats are sitting up in the nasty gnarly nosebleed section. Makes me want to go goat hunting again. My wife doesn't care for goat meat and she doesn't like the look of the mounts so I am largely discouraged from going. But I do confess your pictures make it awful tempting.

    Southeast Alaska Goat Hunt

    I just finished up an epic goat hunt from last weekend. One of the most brutal hikes I've ever accomplished. Couldn't have done it without my hunting buddy! We saw around 30 goats, 2 deer, and 7 Ptarmigan. It was a fantastic weekend with great weather!
