THE ANCIENTS

Outdoor Life - - HUNTING - Jared Frasier

Last year, I tagged along with a friend on his Mon­tana moun­tain goat hunt. I wanted to set up above him—all the bet­ter to spot and film from—and as I was look­ing for a hide, I found a lit­tle rock fort, maybe 10,000 feet up on a ridge. Who­ever made the fort had wedged lit­tle sheets of crys­tal-cov­ered rock in the gaps of the larger rocks they had stacked, pre­sum­ably to keep wind and weather out. As I made my­self com­fort­able in the hide, I looked down and found the ground cov­ered in ob­sid­ian flakes, pre­sum­ably left there by the same hunters who had made the fort.
