...and now we know the rest of the story... Thanks for posting Michael!

"We had to be careful not to push ourselves too hard in order to NOT sweat. We were upper teen and lower 20 degree temperatures with heavy winds and the last thing you need is to be wet from the inside. The terms “Cotton kills” and “The cheap stuff will kill you” apply here. Fleece, polyester, goose down and Gore-Tex are your best friends here." ...very well said...

Looks like a Bibler or ID bivvy? Can't hardly go wrong with Bibler. Just purchased a Nemo Gogo bivvy with the 'air pole' a couple of months ago for solo muley hunting--very amazing little unit and lighter than some bivvys.

Thanks again for posting.

What an incredible hunt!!! I love the combination of mountain hiking and long-range hunting. OK not so long-range after all, but it *could* have!!!

Great idea to use a bivy for wind protection (shelter? - i somehow didn't read that part?) on site. I've used a simple tarp/ground cover for snow-camo/wind protection to reasonably comfortable "use". ;-)

FYI, if you're interested in a more affective 'do-it-all' crampon, the Black Diamond "Contact" is great. It will strap onto anything and give you all the traction you will need.

Michael, great story, enjoyed it a lot, thanks for the write up and for the pictures, they are really nice. Great looking goat!!! Congratulations.
I dont have a clue on how you guys dont get frozen in those trips. That looks really cold weather. So Mountain Goat not good to eat??? What did you with the rest of the meat?

I am using an 'Integral Designs' bivy and my buddy was using a 'Bibler'. Both are excellent. I wouldnt be afraid to buy mine again but would slightly rather have the Bibler. Mine is very light and compact. Charlies is a bit bigger and utilizes a better hoop system to keep the bivy away from your face a little better but is a bit heavier and not as compact. In short one is more efficient and the other is a bit more user friendly. As far as shedding wind and other elements, both are excellent.

This goat is very good. I was just making a joke so that no one else wanted to go goat hunting and leave more goats for me! The rest of the meat is hanging in the back yard.
