No doubt. Love to hear about your Scottish trip. PM me some contact info if you want to chat. Don't want to polute the board with talk from us "blood lusting Barbarians".
I must say though, right now I have Moose, Caribou, and Dall Sheep in my freezer and the Sheep is just freaking amazing. I may have to try again next year. Sheep hunters, like all mountain hunters, have short memories when it comes to the pain.
Keep up the good work on the Crossfit. I can honestly say I'm probably in even better shape now than I was at the start of the hunt in August. I haven't been walking with the pack weighted though. I should probably keep that up as long as possible until we hit some major snow, which for us is probably not far off.
