Re: goat hunt

During my year in Iraq there were a lot of guys dreaming about what they were going to do when they got back. A couple of these guys wanted to go goat hunting so I told them of an easy, cheap, yet highly successful area that I have been before. The planning continued and the physical workouts increased. It is difficult to find time to work out and one of these guys was in horrible bad shape and had gained way too much weight. He is a testament of how you can change your physical conditioning in a year. He dropped a ton of weight and was prepared to run up the mountain when he got back.
We all made it back with our hunting areas recon complete and all logistics figured out. A week prior to our leave their hunt area closed due to emergency order…….now what. I told them to spend the $250 and fly to Cordova and I will pick them up after Daryl’s hunt was over and I would take them hunting with me. Sure enough Daryl was boarding the plane and here were my two friends getting off. I was already tired from a going up and down the mountains. Didn’t matter, these guys dreamed about this hunt for a year and would soon be leaving Alaska for their next duty station so this was the hunt of a lifetime for them. In to town we went to get a couple goat permits and back up a different mountain we go. A couple days later we had two more fine goats down and a story they could brag about for a long time. I will post a few more pictures so you can see a couple more trophies and some beautiful country.

Re: goat hunt

Above the clouds, now all we have to do is find the goats. Up and down the ridges and eventually we will find them.

Re: goat hunt

Chad getting busy. He had harvested quite a few Pennsylvania deer growing up could do quick work on an animal.
