Mountain goat hunting is truly a unique and exciting experience. The terrain these amazing animals live in will test your skills as an outdoorsman. If you think getting the 20 miles into the wilderness to find these goats is a chore, you will soon realize the work has just begun. Let our experienced mountain horses get you as close as possible and then get off as the real hunt is about to start. We prefer to start our hunts after October 1st as that is when the goats start to get a nice winter coat. Both Districts 132 and 133 have only one permit released for each area. Contact us with any additional questions on a mountain goat hunt or for help with applying. The deadline to apply for a goat license is May 1st.
** Important!!! The boots that you bring are probably the most important piece of equipment. Make sure you have at least one good pair of insulated waterproof boots although two are preferred, so they have a day to dry if needed. If you are wearing pack boots, two pairs of liners are nice, so you can dry one pair while wearing the other the next day. We have found that Hoffmann, Schnee’s, and Kennetrek make boots most suitable for our weather and conditions. I personally wear Kennetrek Mountain Extremes with 400 grams of insulation.
