This was a self Chugach Range Mountain Goat Hunt i did in early November. I did and aerial survey of this glaciated area to count animal units for Non-resident opportunities. And the Goat habitat was astounding however the area was formidable. I flew 6 hours and counted 75 animal units. My objective was to take a non-resident in the registration hunt. Unknowingly it was closed by the time we were to embark on our hunt. So instead, like a good guide should i took advantage of the fact that the Resident season was still open. I really enjoy spinning my wheels in the high country left to my own devices. The devices i am referring to are ice axes and crampons that predate my guiding career. When I used to climb ice rock and all things precipitous. Life is a gem, enjoy the bounties of hard won Goat Meat.
