Live Hunt: Stalking Mountain Goats on the Cliffs of Kodiak Island

Live Hunt: Stalking Mountain Goats on the Cliffs of Kodiak Island

Over the next five days, Steve and I would climb, glass and stalk our way to two great goats. Here’s the photos and stories from our epic hunt.

I think calling hunting murder is a little outrageous. People have been participating in the natural process of hunting as long as we have existed. Why would it all of a sudden be wrong?

How could you murder innocent animals like that?? This isn't a game. Animals were here before you were. I am disgusted.

good question hamma-time, It can be pretty overwhelming at first getting started backcountry hunting. Probably what's helped me out the most is talking to old timers and guys who have been hunting a certain area or animal for a long time. You will learn a lot just from experience, but they can help you with the basics. Necessary gear often depends on the area, but what I like to do when making checklists is go through all of the things I will need to do throughout a day and make sure I have what I need to do them. If you do some research, there are some good books about different types of backcountry hunting and lists for gear that can get you started. Part of the fun of it is constantly learning new things and improving!

So how do you learn how to hunt like this; certainly you don’t just walk out the door and start. I am looking to start doing more backcountry hunts but I don’t know how to start without getting myself into a whole bunch trouble. And how to know what gear to carry with you.

thanks for the comment shoter 86, and sorry it has taken me so long to reply. I have used meindl's for a few years, but their sheep hunting boots' soles are very hard and my feet aren't as tough as they used to be. Now I use a pair of Lowa Tibets and I'm very impressed, they have a great footbed, are very comfortable, and are very tough!

Congrats Steve and Tyler I'm always waiting to see what are you taking next. Since you use to the alaska wilderness, what boots do you have for your hunts, whats your favorite pair of boots or what do you recommend?
