The majestic mountain goats are in most people’s opinion the most under rated animal in north America. This is a physically challenging hunt, but is one of the most rewarding of them all. Nearly 90% of the worlds entire population of mountain goats live in BC and our guiding area has a very healthy population of thick horned, large bodied Goats. Mountain goats like the more rugged mountains and can be found anywhere from the mountain peaks to the steep valley canyons. Most of the Billy’s in our area die of old age and have likely never seen a human due to little or no hunting pressure in most areas and plenty of hiding places and inaccessible terrain. Their beautiful furry coats and long black horns along with the terrain they live in makes this the ultimate mountain hunt. We only harvest mature Billy’s and on average have 9 ½ inch horns with big bases. Although the season opens Aug 1 we generally don’t start hunting them till Sept when the hair is longer. This 1/1 hunt can also be combined with either Sheep, Caribou or Moose.
