Gear List 2018 – BC Mountain Goat

In preparation for a February mountain goat hunt, below is a list of everything I’ll be taking. This is an 8 day hunt. 7 of us will be going. We’ll access a remote drainage by boat, hike in with snowshoes, tow sleds with additional gear, setup a basecamp with an 8 man Kifaru Tipi tent and wood stove. Then we’ll hunt out of there with one-man tents on our back incase we need to camp out on the mountain. Last year I was on a similar hunt and trying to burn wood to heat our tent was like trying to light a stick that had been submerged in a river for days then thrown into the freezer, it would not burn! So this year, we’ll bring up fire logs cut down to size so they’ll fit into our Kifaru stove which should allow us to heat the tent, dry gear, boil water and cook. The snow is deep and the temps are cold as. This will be a type-2-fun trip and I’m stoked!

Human emotion is most prevalent when the conditions suck, which is photo gold! Not to mention we all have to push far beyond our own comfort zones on trips like these. When you’ve survived and thrived on such endeavors, you learn a ton about yourself and how capable you really are, which is incredibly rewarding.
