Are those the roots of the tree or the tree themselves? Looks like it'll be a tough drag getting your goat out with those rocks.

Just filled my gun, picked out the clothing and got the backpack ready
Planning to get to the valley by 8 tomorrow morning, no point getting there to early since goats take awhile to get going :)

These are the roots of Banyan trees, the tree is on the top of the ridge and roots come all the way down to the valley floor,
I've seen some in very high cliffs come down for as much as 200 feet, probably more.

I had a great hunt yesterday,
heard goats up on the ridges, not as much as last time but still plenty but never got eyes on them, never made contact.

Will give this place a couple weeks off and next time I will go for an afternoon/evening hunt, also will wait for a day with more wind too.

Looking forward to reading about the hunt in a couple weeks! And yes, those roots are something to behold!

Sorry, my life is a bit upside down,

Can't shoot. test guns, check zeros,.....no real time to hunt, need to take care of things, have to work more and still not able to make ends meet.
Not seeing the light at the end of the tunnel at the moment, might get a window this weekend but not sure.

That's tough brother. I hope your time and financial situations improve soon. I think we can all relate to some extent.

Hang in there bro. Always remember that nothing lasts forever, not even the bad times. We just gotta keep on keeping on.

Take care of yourself.

Thanks fellas,

one way or an other things will change,
we even considering a move to Europe, the fact that 2 full time working adults are not able to find a place to rent is pretty sad,
we have a few months to think about this, in the meantime this place we are staying I can't even let one round off so it chills everything down :(
