Mountain goat hunts take place on Kodiak Island. We generally schedule these hunts in October. In August we are guiding sheep and caribou hunts and in September, moose hunts. The colder temperatures in October make the long hair on the goats particularly thick and prime. This makes for an outstanding trophy mount. This is a 7-day hunt with a travel day at each end.
We will either fly in or hike into alpine camps, depending on the weather. Weather can play a significant role in the success and enjoyment of your hunt. Rain, fog, and wind, in addition to cold temperatures and snow, can all be expected on these hunts. Physical and mental conditioning is very important in preparation for this backpack style hunt. This is a very demanding hunt in terrain. This is not for anyone with a fear of heights. Mountain goats rely on the security of their cliff territory for protection.
We take one hunter at a time. This is a one hunter and one guide hunt. As with all of our trips we work hard to make these personalized once in a lifetime experiences. Please contact us via our contact page or give us a call to book your hunt.
Kodiak Island Mountain Goat Hunts are a one goat by permit hunt. Permits are available online at hunt.alaska.gov. To apply you must have a current Alaska Hunting License and a client/guide agreement. The application deadline is mid-December of the year preceding the hunt. The season is August 20 to October 25th. I generally schedule these hunts in October.
