British Columbia Mountain Goat Hunt 10608
90% of the World’s entire population of Mountain Goats are found in the mountains of British Columbia and this guiding territory is home to some of the most productive goat habitat in the province. An extensive network of backcountry cabins and trails has been developed that allows the hunter to utilize horses to access remote valleys which, still in this modern age, see trophy billies dying of old age without ever laying their keen eyes on a human.
Mountain Goat hunting is a very physically demanding hunt, for many hunters it is the toughest hunt they have ever done. The goal is to get you a great billy and as long as you are in reasonable shape and have a good mental outlook the guides can get you in position on a trophy animal. In fact, it has been a common theme among hunters at this location that their Mountain Goat hunt has been the most rewarding hunt of their lifetime.
In British Columbia, the focus is on maintaining high quality goat hunting year after year and only harvesting mature billies. The success rate on mountain goats is 90% and the average horn size is 9-10”. Several different hunting styles for trophy mountain goats are offered. However, the specialty is horse assisted hunting. Using the horses allows you to travel deep into the backcountry, not to mention that it really saves your body until your goat is spotted and it’s time to climb. The horses also allow you to cover a lot of ground during your hunt and eliminate long approaches to the mountain.
If you do not care for horses you can still hunt big mountain goats either from the basecamp using 4×4 for access or fly into one of our many remote high elevation mountain lakes and backpack hunt for that big billy.
