Jim Shockey Mountain Goat Quest

A world-class goat is up some 4000 feet. No problem...

Not many hunters have the steel to pursue mountain goats, much less with a muzzleloader. Of course, Jim Shockey is not most hunters.

Here he's on an epic quest to reach a mountain goat he's spotted from nearly a mile away, and the trek is on to get into muzzle range.

There's 4000 vertical feet to scale. This is not your father's casual hunt.
