Mountain Goat Hunting on BC's North West Coast
B.C.'s north coast bordering Alaska is noted for having the highest population of mountain goat in North America. Our exclusive guiding area is located in the heart of mountain goat heaven. Towering peaks, mountains, ice fields provide some of the best habitat for these magnificent animals. Our area boasts the best trophy mountain goats available with over 40 alpine lakes to choose from. Record 10" billy's are the norm, not the exception. A rotation of our harvest area virtually ensures record class mountain goats on all hunts. The high mountain goat population in our area allows for an extended season. Goats may be hunted right up until the end of February. See our annual brochrues for pricing.
EARLY SEASON FLY-IN HUNTS
August & September are the 2 best months for fly-ins. Our mountain goat camps are located on remote Canadian alpine lakes. Camps are equipped with comfortable wall tents with heat. They are built to withstand the wettest and harshest weather this region of BC is known for. From camp you will hike the various hills & ridges in search of your trophy mountain goat. Goats are usually observed from camp on the surrounding hills. We hike the mountains and ridges around camp and return to our base camp each night. We are equipped with mountain tents for the 1-2 day excursions from base camp. Our fly-in mountain goat hunts are prescouted on a yearly basis to ensure trophy quality. Not often does a mountain goat hunt last more than 3-4 days. We target trophy billy's, NOT NANNY'S. The abundance of mountain goats on our fly-in hunts allows for even challenged mountain goat hunters to bag a goat. We only take 1-2 mountain goats from each camp per season to ensure a thriving population.
We target the mountain goats as they prepare for the rut. The goats move from summer feeding areas to common ground with the nanny and kids. 2-3 billy's together is very common at this time of year. This is a physical hunt, as you are climbing from the bottom of the mountain, but it's not mountain climbing. 1-3 hour climbs are to be expected. We hunt from cabins and wall tents in selected areas. We use trucks, atv's and jet boats in support of the hunt. Trophy billy's with long hair will be harvested on this hunt.
Winter says it all! Mountain goats have moved to the wintering grounds. They are now near the bottom of the mountain. This is the best time for a hunter with physical limitations to bag a goat. Long range shots in the 300 yard range if you don't want to hike. Snow machines, snow shoes and atv's is how we access these areas. Goats at this time of year have maximum hair length. You won't see a goat with this much hair unless it's come from here! We have exclusive winter hunting for mountain goat only in this area of BC.
