Congratulations

Hawkeye,

 

First I have to congratulate you.

Your story illustrates how hard work and determination can lead to sucess. Second, I need to compliment you on a fine story that is well written. One gets a sense that they are expiriencing the hunt and it's frustrations and joys with you.

I look forward to reading more of your adventures.

 

Biker

Great video. You were able to

Great video. You were able to capture the feeling of the entire hunt without the rest of us having to get worn out. lol I admire your restraint in passing up the first ones you got close in on, I have a hard time holding back most of the time no matter what I'm hunting. It's amazing how tough those  goats are.

Congratulations again on a great hunt and the video to relive it.

Got the video playing now.

Got the video playing now. Hopefully you don't kill my battery on my phone.... lol

You gotta shave, BTW... Wink

Edit:  Just watched the whole thing... Or did I?  I got to just after the high 5, and the screen went blue for the next 2+ minutes.  No shots of the recovery?

Also, just a little critique.... You gotta show more excitement!!!!! That was awesome!  I almost had a tear in my eye, watching the old matriarch of the mountain take her last breath.... Yes

Epic!!

That was just epic and unforgettable. You have convinced me to start getting preference points for mountain goats. Great job and you can relive it from the tape for the rest of your life. It literally dosent get any better. EPIC!

Yeah... I'm going to have to

Yeah... I'm going to have to fix the video. It is missing some at the end. I also didn't upload the first part which is basically all the scouting in the 4 days prior to the hunt. It is pretty neat for me to have it but I figured it would be boring for the average viewer. I might get around to putting it up to though but I want to fix the first video as a priority.

Awesome!  Congrats!  That is

Awesome!  Congrats!  That is quite the story, quite the goat, quite the pictures, and quite the video!  As one or two others have mentioned, your story is rather inspiring to start accumulating preference points to get the opportunity to have my own mountain goat hunting story.  Now, this weekend, you can get a great flatland goat to go with your mountain variety. Thumbs up

Thanks Mitch... and that is

Thanks Mitch... and that is the plan. We'll see how it goes. Due to all my mountain goat scouting I didn't get as much scouting done for my prong hunt as I wanted. I did get one more trip in last weekend and found 2 shooter bucks on public land. I'll give it my all!
