In mid-August, Dan Vastyan @TransientOutdoorsman set out for northern British Columbia to film a mountain goat hunt with @FinlayRiverOutfitters. On the fourth day of the hunt, he connected with this billy, which should score high enough to qualify for Boone and Crockett All Time.

- Perched high on a cliff just above tree-line, the goat bedded down as soon as they spotted it. The guide’s rangefinder, which did not compensate for angle, read 240 yards. Dan’s Fury binoculars read 150 yards. The shot angle was the steepest that Dan had ever taken on a big game animal. Two well-placed shots from Dan’s 300 WSM, topped with a Razor HD-LH, tipped the goat off the cliff and into the trees below. A short hike to the base of the cliff revealed that the goat was much larger than any of the hunting party had anticipated. Dan is extremely grateful for the opportunity to harvest any mountain goat, let alone one of this caliber. Profuse thanks go to his guide, @kote74 , and hunting partner, @carrick.luke who snapped this photo.

- Because Dan carried about 25 pounds of video gear on the hunt, cutting weight in other areas was extremely important. He took a 50mm Razor HD spotting scope instead of a larger model, and found himself at no disadvantage compared to using a larger spotter. Unfortunately, they could only use spotting scopes for about half the trip, because the area was blanketed in thick wildfire smoke much of the time. Dan was also able to take a beautiful wolf on this incredible trip. Follow @TransientOutdoorsman to see the complete video and other photos from the trip.

Anyone care to guess why we mounted a red dot on top of a spotting scope?
