It’s often been said that wild sheep inhabit some of the most rugged terrain in North America. Then there is the mountain goat looking down on the sheep! Able to traverse near vertical rock faces, hunting mountain goats will surely test the hunter, but if successful, you will have hard-earned memories to last a lifetime. Weighing up to 350 pounds, a mature billie, with his jet black curved horns, long white hair, pantaloons and beard makes a beautiful trophy. Legacy Outdoors offers high quality hunts for mountain goats throughout Canada and the United States. We only work with the most reputable hunting outfitters in a region. We have been helping mountain goat hunters find the best hunts for a long time. We constantly keep up with our outfitters and their hunting areas and many other factors can affect mountain goat hunting success. We can help you find the best hunts where you have the best chance of success at harvesting a trophy mountain goat.
Although mountain goats inhabit some of the most unforgiving terrain in North America, Legacy Outdoors can tailor a hunt to suit almost anyone. We can offer fly-in hunts to high alpine areas, back-pack style hunts, horseback hunts, and spike camp hunts. These are generally physical hunts but some are more physical than others. However, we also offer boat based hunts, especially in the November time frame. At this time of year, the goats have been pushed out of the high mountains down near sea level and can be much easier to access. Having the comfort of a nice boat to stay in at night is also a huge plus. So whatever your abilities are, after a discussion, we can find the perfect hunt for you. No matter what kind of mountain goat hunt you’re looking for we got you covered.
Although they can be hunted in several states in the continental US, tags are very limited. With around 100,000 total mountain goats in North America, roughly 80% are found in Alaska and British Columbia. Because of this, tags are readily available in Alaska and British Columbia. The record books show that British Columbia dominates in producing book animals, followed by Alaska. Legacy Outdoors represents several of the best mountain goat outfitters in North America. Below you will find some info on the most popular locations to hunt mountain goats. If you don’t see a particular location you want to hunt mountain goats just give us a call! There are so many options, we can’t list them all.
British Columbia arguably has the best mountain goat hunting in the world, with roughly 50,000 goats and the most record book entries by far. A trophy billie is in reach for those who can get to them and shoot straight. We have outfitters who produce multiple record book goats every year. They would harvest more record billies, but the fact is that most hunters are happy to shoot the first mature billie they see. Fly-in, horseback, and back-pack styles of hunting are used. It is common to do combo hunts in BC for goat, moose, caribou, and elk and possibly add wolf and black bear too.
Alaska has roughly 30,000 goats and also produces record book animals. Mountain goats in SE Alaska are known to be some of the largest in the world, with mature Billie’s reaching 350 pounds. Fly-in and backpack style hunts are conducted. With all the coastal areas, boat-based hunts here are also very popular.
