Mountain Goat Hunts
We conduct Alaska trophy Mountain Goat hunts at two great hunt areas: Prince William Sound and Kodiak Island.
Prince William Sound:
Prince William Sound hunts are conducted along the coastal glaciated alpine country, 175 miles south of Anchorage. From Anchorage, we travel across rugged mountainous and glacier terrain via air charter flight to glacier filled lakes and coastline. Our Mountain Goat camps are based on glacier filled alpine lakes and coastline. We have access to millions of acres of scenic coastal wilderness with abundant wildlife. Typically, Mountain Goats can be viewed from our base camps, rustic wilderness cabin or comfortable tent camps. On some occasions we use spike camps for easier access to goats. Also, we use Zodiac rafts on alpine lakes for easier accessing terrain and glassing for goats. Hunters do a moderate mountain backpack climb. Recommend hunters be in good to excellent physical shape and be willing to pack a reasonable amount of gear. Elevation range from sea level from 1,800’ to 3,000’. This is the ultimate spot-and-stalk hunt. During inclement weather, goats are forced down to lower terrain. Goats' prefer high-altitude cliffs, along with their magnificent white coats, makes them one of the most challenging and satisfying game animals in Alaska. Most hunts are done in two to three days with the exception of inclement weather days. Mountain goat horns range between 8″ - 10″, with a few billies making the record books. Arrival and departure point is Anchorage, Alaska. Mountain Goat Registered Permit is required. Clients may be upgrade hunt to include a trophy Black Bear.
Kodiak Island is over populated with Mountain Goats. Mountain Goat hunts are one of the most challenging trophies in Alaska. Mountain Goat hunts require extreme hiking and backpacking, so hunters must be in good to excellent shape and willing to pack a reasonable amount of gear. Hunters fly to the main lodge/base camp from Kodiak and climb up to 2,500' to set-up spike camp. This is the ultimate spot-and-stalk hunt. We've had an extremely high success rate for many years. Most billies harvested are over eight inches in length, including a few 10” goats that have made Boone and Crockett record book. We can assist clients in processing limited draw permit applications (November 1 - December 17) to Alaska Department of Fish and Game (ADF&G). Our goat hunt areas are DG472 and DG471 in Ugak Bay.
