Re: goat hunt

Cheap camera and poor photographer but the binos reveal a couple nice billies on this mountain.

    One more goat to go. Found him on this mountain. Bad camera but there are quite a few goats on this hill.

    Great pics, thanks for sharing. Heck of a terrain, that's when that PT-conditioning pays dividends.

    Re: goat hunt

    I was using the dragonfly and abused it for a week. There were points I rolled my pack down hills because they were really steep and it was safer to roll the pack. The only damage was one small plastic buckle broke (my fault).I usually use a cabelas pack like my friend Chad used. Once you get over 100lbs of weight the cabelas pack was more comfortable. The dragonfly tended to pull me back a little straining the lower back because there is no way to put the weight up higher on the shoulders. I would not recommend it for anything larger than a goat sized animal. You may have noticed that I attached a few pouches on the outside so I can organize my pack a little better. I generally pack light for a week long hunt. Food, water, solo camping gear, rifle etc weighs less than 50lbs. Even for a couple day hunt I pack to stay in the woods a week.
