I enjoyed reading along as well, especially about the goats. That seemed like a lot of weight per animal, did the square boxes give them any rubs/sores? The goats have always interested me, and I would have some if I had the land to raise them on. Also not sure if they are worth the investment of $ and time for 2 hunts per year.?.?. Thanks for taking us along!
Sounds like a fun hunt, draw area for elk?
When I first got my goats, I too was excited to pack in beer and frozen food etc. But I've since went back to a backpacker's mentality and try to stay lightweight still. It took me a full season to realize that, sounds like you figured it out in 2 trips.
50+ lb. packs is killer, especially for new packers. You'll be pumped when they are in peak condition. Thanks for sharing!
Looks fun! How do you like your DRT heads by the way? I'm trying them this year and they fly great. Haven't used them on a critter yet though.
