you r killin me buddy. Great hunt and what an inspiration. To do what larry did at his age tells all of us that if we take care of ourselves, the sky is the limit

Hey Jaq

I'll see what I can do! I may need to look into a new hunting partner.... I'm ugly and so are the my hunting partners:)

I'll see if OL will approve a scouting trip to Lake Powell for spring break!

Great job, Aron, and congrats to Larry! Looking forward to more awesome stuff from your 2011 season!!!

One suggestion - why don't you include a few gratuitous pics of chicks in bikinis like on some of the other threads?? Doesn't matter if they were involved in your hunt, but toss us a bone once in awhile, buddy. We'll love you for it.

As a general rule of thumb, I always suggest you stay above 450 grains for hunting big game out west. This depends on several factors, but that should give you an idea of what you need.
If you give me a little more detail, I can help answer your question a little better.

You need a good solid broadhead as well. The broadhead I have been using the most lately is called a "RamCat". It not your normal design, but I have seen the damage it can cause first hand. They are lethal!

I will be posting my final gear list as soon as I have decided what it will be:) I have gotten to try several new pieces of equipment (shelters,sleeping bags, optics, camouflage, knives) and it's going to be tough to make a final decision.

I will be doing several workout videos to help guys heading out west get prepared physically for your hunts.

Stay tuned on Live Hunt and feel free to ask any question! you may have on hunting out west!

I can't wait to go on my hunt next year. This is really getting me excited. I was wondering what you would recommend for gear and arrows? What does it take to get in that kind of shape for this kind of hunt? I think outdoordans chair is an awesome idea.

That unit that Larry drew was G16 3rd season. G16 and G7 are two of my favorites goat units.
I think it took Larry 9 or 10 years to draw that tag, but not 100% on that. I will ask him and post the exact years after I talk with him.

Larry is a pretty amazing guy and a testament to how long a person can hunt if you stay in shape and have the right mental attitude.

If you have questions on mountain goat hunting or the gear we used for the trip, feel free to post them up! I love talking about hunting:)

What unit was Larry in? How long did it take to get drawn. I hope I'm up to the task when I'm that age.

Looks like our nice weather is starting to pass. We had a high around 60 or maybe more today! Wish I was doing something else but gives us hope for spring! Ok, so I need to determine if the chair will have a footrest and cup holders, got alot of work to do yet.

Sounds like a plan Outdoordan!

How is the weather in your neck of the woods! It's going to be in the high 50's this week in Colorado! I'm pretty happy about that since I work outside for my real job.

We are heading back into the high country this weekend for yokes... Hope it's warmer then the last trip. I still can't feel me feet:)

I am considering developing a chair so that I can sit on your back and hunt while you climb mountains. It would be alot of fun for me and a good workout for you. Ok?
