The saying goes that mountain goat hunting starts, where sheep hunting stops…and it’s true. Mountain goats survive because of where they live, not necessarily because they are so wily.
A Sheep Hunt at a Fraction of the Cost
Alaska mountain goats are very affordable to hunt by comparison to hunting in Canada, and for the most part the elevations are much lower as well. With severe winters, goats grow coats that are second to none, and our hunters take Boone and Crockett, and Pope and Young billies almost every year.
Huntable populations of mountain goat live in Alaska, Idaho, Montana, British Columbia, Alberta, the Yukon, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, Oregon, Colorado, Texas, South Dakota and Washington. Some states have relatively good drawing odds for mountain goat hunting, especially when you compare them to species like bighorn sheep.
