Mountain goats are our specialty, with an average of 5 being taken every year at a success rate better than 90%. This is the ultimate for hunters that want a hunt that's a challenge and that they will never forget. From it's sharp black horns to it's luxurious white coat, a mountain goat is one of the most beautiful trophies you will find.
We had a great late September hunt, with Tracy and Doug from PA each harvesting good goats. Tracy also got a beautiful black bear, and Doug took home an elk.

Here's a shot of Grant from Boston taking a well deserved break on the way up the mountain. Grant was bowhunting for goats in mid-September. Unfortunately we were unable to get him a goat, although we passed up a nanny early in the hunt.
We ran into some issues with snow and rain throughout October. This is Mark and I on top of Castle Mountain on the nicest day of our early October hunt for bow moose and goat. We're hiking in about 16 inches of snow on this day, and saw two goats as well as lots of tracks, but we're unable to connect.
Congratulations John on this 9.5 inch goat, especially because of the hard work it took and the extra night on the mountain because it was way down the wrong side!
