Film: Winter Goat Hunting in Western Canada in “Toeing the Line”


The Journal of Mountain Hunting has released their first film, and we sure hope there are more to come.

From the Journal of Mountain Hunting:

“Mountain hunting guides live enigmatic lives. They spend months in the field, but rarely get to hunt for themselves. In British Columbia, at the end of the guiding season, there is only one true mountain hunt available: Rocky Mountain goats. The undisputed king of the crags.

A late-season goat hunt requires the skills and gear of the alpinist and the hubris to think you can get it done. It is not for the timid or the unprepared.

In TOEING THE LINE, join hunting guide Nolan Osborne and his friends on an unforgettable adventure into the mountains of B.C., on what would be Nolan’s first personal mountain hunt. Faced with frigid temperatures, record snowfall, and perilous terrain, this crew of experienced hunters had the odds stacked against them. They wouldn’t have had it any other way.”
