I'm working as a Fish Culturist at Hidden Falls Salmon Hatchery in a remote spot near Sitka, Alaska! AM I CRAZY!? I'm starting to think so...

UPDATE since last blog!


I was pretty excited to see him show up the morning he returned. I was pretty anxious to see if he'd get his goat or not. They couldn't have had any BETTER weather for a hunting trip, though I think they could have had a better bug situation. I'm pretty sure they got swarmed!

Anyhow, pictures!
Adam and his mountain goat! It was a 5-5 1/2 year old nanny (female). He had to shoot it like 4 times. Apparently they are tough! Finally on the 4th shot, he took out her legs and she tumbled down the mountain. Unfortunately, during the tumble, her horns got a little busted up. You can see that one is broken and bent down and the other one is a little broken too. But it's still pretty cool. I'll have to take a close up when he gets them back from town. He had to send them to Fish & Game in town.

Can you believe that background!? I guess his goat was a little on the smaller size, just so you know. But I don't have any other pictures of goats to compare...

I think they camped somewhere on that ridge... about half way out.

Another ridge... they were literally walking on the top of the mountain!

These views!! That is Kaznyku Bay that you see... which is the bay we are in. That is Hidden Falls lake also. If you make the picture bigger, you can see some netpens in there, on the right of the picture.

More views. That long skinny water on the left is Cosmos Cove, which we boat to alot. On the right is our bay again... that same view that you saw before.

OH, Nice goat too! lol Those ridges don't look like they're too safe to camp on. I'd be scared.

Did Adam get "billy goat fever" looking through his scope before he shot? I sure would have had a "bahhhhhhhhad" case of it if it were me!
