Well he finally got it done hunting up on the Libby side of the wilderness. His goat was 7.5 year and 9" on each side roughly. What gorgeous country and a beautiful animal. Wow is all I can say. I wish I would have been with him for this hunt also! He used a Winchester Model 70 in 300 WSM with 180 gr. Accubonds that he loaded himself. I loaded previously for him for 26 years and Don finally got the stuff to do his own. They grow up so fast!;) I'm sure tickled for him.

Love the photos! Congrats to your buddy on the great goat! I love those microspikes you guys are wearing - I have them with me year round when hunting. I've used them in frost, dewey meadows, ice, snow, etc. They are a lifesaver for the weight.

Absolutely! When I was up earlier on a goat hunt with Don he used my son's pair and I was wearing my own of course. He flat out stated I have to have some of these! They do work great for sure. I carry them in a small compression bag in my pack all the time!!
