Marc Warnke isn’t just a guy who owns goats. He’s the goat guy.

Owning pack goats isn’t just something that is a casual part of someone’s life. Often, it becomes their life. That is the case with the owner of Top End Adventures, Marc Warnke.

Filson follows Marc into the wilderness and allows him to tell his story of his passion for pack goats, his lifestyle, and the true grit and ability of these amazing animals.

From packing in gear to packing out wild game from a backcountry hunt, pack goats are capable of so much more than people give them credit for. Marc’s genuine emotional connection to his animals is undeniable.

“I can tell you — goats have grit. They literally have grit. I’ve seen them do things they couldn’t believe they could do to stay with the herd and then, like, celebrate it. I’ve felt that from them before.”
