ALASKA GOAT BOAT HUNT
BIG BODIED LONGHAIRED BILLIES
LATE OCTOBER TO LATE NOVEMBER
$23,000 7 DAYS BOAT HUNT
2022 – 9 HUNTERS 8 BILLIES
2021 – 6 HUNTERS 6 BILLIES
2020 – 7 HUNTERS 6 BILLIES
2019 – 10 HUNTERS 9 BILLIES
2018 – 9 HUNTERS 9 BILLIES
This may be the most premier mountain goat boat hunt in Alaska with an outfitter that has not shot a nanny in many many years. These are late season hunts for big bodied long haired billies. They regularly kill billies over 300 pounds.
2022 season finished with 9 hunters tagging 8 billies and the unsuccessful hunter hit and lost a billy. Best goat went 10 1/2 inches and 2 billies were so old they were toothless.
2021 season he had 3 hunters in October and 3 more in November. All 6 killed billies despite some misses, with the best going over 10 inches.
This is an extremely high success hunt on big bodied mature billies if you can physically hike. 9 days total, 7 hunting days are priced at $23,000 guided 1×1 by the outfitter or his head guide and they only take 2 hunters per trip. He typically does 5 hunts starting mid to late October and finishing mid-November. These hunts are conducted off his 45 foot hunting vessel pulling along two 18 foot skiffs to access shoreline. Normally the first 2 hunts are the most physical as the billies are usually higher at 3500 foot elevation. Later hunts billies tend to be lower as the rut is in full swing and they travel lower looking for nannies. All the billies are long haired even on his first hunt as it is so close to winter.
Hunts take place off the mainland shoreline in southeastern Alaska. Charter flights out of Juneau to the boat are about $300 per hunter. 2023 has 2 openings October 20 to 29 or book now for 2024 or 2025. Hunt MG838.
NORTHERN B.C. MOUNTAIN GOAT
7 DAYS 1X1 HORSEBACK $17,000
SECOND ANIMAL $6000 TROPHY FEE
10 DAY GOAT/MOOSE HORSEBACK $24,000
Here is an exciting mountain goat hunt that offers a fly-in drop type backpack hunt in September or a horseback October hunt in one of the most beautiful areas of North America.
2022 season produced about 15 billies and one was record book. Pretty much everyone wanting a goat was successful.
2021 his 9 hunters tagged 8 billies, including one book animal.
This 4,500 square mile area located in northcentral British Columbia is only 60 miles from the Yukon border in the Cassiar Mountains. Mountain goat and moose numbers are quite high, with big bodied goats and moose having strong genetics producing great antlers. Success on goats is typically 85 percent as your primary animal if you are capable of hiking. He offers high fly-in to alpine lakes and backpack from there in September or October goat or combination hunts, both are highly successful.
Most hunters choose either a 7 or 10 day 1×1 hunt, but 2×1 guided 10 day hunts are available for a couple buddies at a significantly reduced price of $16,000 each. 7 days 1×1 is $17,000 and we feel this is sufficient amount of time to get your goat unless weather or physical ability becomes a major problem. A second animal can be taken on a $6,000 trophy fee. Trophy fees are also paid on wounded and lost animals. 10 day horseback hunts guided 1×1 are for 2 species goat/moose at $24,000 with no trophy fees.

ALASKA GOAT HUNT
AUGUST OR SEPTEMBER
This small personal outfitter/guide offers a couple different August and September goat opportunities. In August he can do one fly-in hunt where the hunter charters into an alpine lake and then him and the guide will bivouac from spike tents. By flying in the hunt will be less physical than the full hike in. 7 hunting days 1×1 will be $16,500 plus the charter.
September first he can offer 2 goat/black bear combination hunts or strictly mountain goat. This is a great area that has not been hardly hunted, if at all, for the past several years. Goat numbers are high, and this will be a boat hunt conducted off his 45 foot hunting vessel. Expect to climb probably half a day to get to the bivouac location and if lucky only spend one or two nights on the mountain before returning with your billy to the boat. 7 hunting days plus 2 travel is priced at $17,500 with a $4,000 trophy fee on the bear.
He conducts his hunts west of Juneau on Chilkat Peninsula and south of Juneau on the mainland coastline, mostly operating off a 45 foot hunting boat typically pulling along an 18 foot skiff with 40hp motor to access the shorelines.
Hunters should be in very good physical condition, and we expect every hunter to see goats and have an opportunity if they are up to the challenge.
Hunters are picked up and dropped off in Juneau, unless charting into a lake location. Hunt MG838.
