A few notes about this hunt:
This was a guided hunt in Alaska's Misty Fiords National Monument which is part of the Tongass National Forest in SE Alaska. My guide was Johnnie Laird of Muskeg Excursions commonly known as 'Muskegman' here on the conferences. This being my second goat bowhunt, the first one being successful some years back in CO, the goal was to harvest a trophy billy goat. We would pass on nannies and small billies.
