Alaska mountain goat guided
« on: May 08, 2021, 10:32:01 PM »
I put in 4 states and have ok odds in Idaho and absolutely terrible odds in the other 3 states  😂But trying to be realistic I am going to start looking into a guided hunt. Itís my last oil and my last real ďbucket ď list animal to hunt. Iíve done almost everything diy and prefer that but I just want to go goat hunting and reality is I might never draw a tag. Iím looking for recommendations from anyone who has had a good goat guide experience and I prefer Alaska. I donít need a trophy but would like opportunity at a good representative billy.

You might want to check the Washington Wild Sheep on line auction going on right now. This is a highly reputable outfitter Iíve hunted with my self. Their sheep hunts are usually booked 3 years out.
Great opportunity and help raise some conservation $ for wild sheep.

I was in the same boat as you a few years ago.... wanted to go really bad and drawing a tag is like pissing in the wind,
Don't discount Canada, I would recommend the guy I went with but he retired. The upside of Canada is it's an option to drive.

My daughter hunted sheep with them and I was able to tag along as a packer. I did see several goats while flying in and out of sheep camp though. First class operation. The lodge does a lot of tourist business so they dont advertise the hunting side much on line. They have been outfitting for a long long time.

What time frame you looking? How tough of a hunt. I know an outfitter that guides Kodiak. If you want long hair you might look at a Kenai peninsula hunt in Nov. Some that area can be pretty tough hunting. If you want it this year it might be tough to get in as some book out a couple years. :twocents:

Anytime really on the hunt but Iím in Idaho goat and Oregon goat which feels like waste of time. I have reasonable odds Idaho so if I draw this year I donít need to go guided.if I donít draw this year I will start planning a guided hunt this spring/summer with hope of going in next year or two.  I am not worried about a long hair goat but just want a nice representative billy. Iím really torn of what type of hunt I sometimes feel like I want the whole experience including the suffering 😂 but really if Iím going guided I feel like I might as well pick an ďeasierĒ hunt. I have done and continue to do traumatic hunts on my own ha ha. I will continue to put in for the diy opportunities with goat so I still have that chance. I just donít want to wait forever anymore for an opportunity that might not happen.

I've never hunted with a guide but id look hard at Kodiak. Theres some really good outfits on the rock, VERY healthy goat populations and lots of options for styles of hunts and time frames. With an 8 month long season you could land a beaver on an alpine lake and be right up in them and plan for a few salmon days on the back end, go in November and combo them with a deer hunt (doing that this year) or go in March when the days are starting to get long again just like the goat hair.

nope. Registration hunt rg480 is otc. Its the whole South half of the island. Obviously as a NR you'll need a guide but the tag is the easy part.
