Guided Mt. Goat Hunts
The Mountain Goat is another of the high mountain inhabitants of the Chugach Range. They are one impressive animal, which has evolved specifically for steep travel. Their skeletal structure is transformed to include an aft center of gravity that enables them to feed in the precarious precipices. Sure of foot and undaunted with the challenges of living in the crags they are just as wary as the Dall Sheep. Long on guard hairs and the quintessential wooly knickers, this animals cape is relished as are the impressive horns. The Billy Goat is our only quarry.
Meat of the Billy Goat, although sometimes tough, is delicious and makes a good burger/sausage blend when combined with Black Bear fat.
“The Mountain Goat is a highly evolved animal. Not a highly responsive animal, but its evolution is to maintain life in some inhospitable terrain. There are places a goat will go you cant conceivably follow and he will get there with no amount of duress. To hunt goat in the Chugach Range takes the dust off the Ole Hobnail Boots.” – Cash Joyce
Locations of our Mt. Goat Hunts
We hunt the Billy Goat in the same range we hunt Dall Sheep, Units 13 and 14. The Goat populations are strong and every year they seem to proliferate. On par with Sheep Hunting, you can expect a goat hunt to be equally demanding. Don’t let the mountain atmosphere dissuade you. If you think you are too far along in your season, consider asking for a packer to ease your conscience. We can and will help you with your objective, please consider this overlooked hunt it has a lot to offer.
