Most exciting or memorable hunt

Nothing compares to the excitement and challenge of hunting my mountain goat with a bow.  Every direction I went was either straight up or straight down.  I wore my boots out on the rocks and came home exhausted every night.  But something kept me going back.  What a thrill!!

OK, what is your most exciting or memorable hunt?

Although every hunt I've ever

Although every hunt I've ever been on is as memorable as all the others for me, The most exciting so far for me was also a goat hunt for the same reasons as yours. It is the longest I've spent out after one animal from scouting all summer and then the hunt itself.

Unfortunately for me I was unsuccessful in filling my tag but that in no way takes away from the experiences I enjoyed that year.

Hopefully I can draw another tag in less than 15 years the next time though.

My successful mountain lion hunt in97 would rank right up there also.

6 Months and change for me.

My hunt in British Columbia starts October 1.  I'm going to use my new Nosler Sporter .260 for my first Mountain Goat Hunt.  I'll flip a coin for Bow or Muzzleloader for the next one.

Great job getting yours with a Bow.
