Kodiak Island Mountain Goat Hunt #OI-CHCGS1

Mountain Goat Hunting Alaska on Kodiak Island


Kodiak Island Mountain Goat Hunt

The mountain goat population on Kodiak Island has exploded in recent years, and our success rates on this hunt reflect that.

Hunts take place on over 100,000 acres of private land. You will access the hunting areas with trucks and ATV’s which will allow you to cover more ground in a day. Don’t let that fool you, lots of hiking is involved as the goats will be in the alpine, so the better shape you are in the more enjoyable and successful your Alaska mountain goat hunt will be.

We hunt goats on Kodiak Island October 1st – 25th when their hair is at its best.

  • This is a 7 day hunt with 2 additional travel days to and from camp.
  • Your hunt will take place on private land.
  • 100% success to date on mature billies (but that is NOT a guarantee).
  • Trucks and 4-wheelers are used to access trails for backpacking into goat country.
  • 1×1 guiding with guides who are local’s and know the area well, with a vast knowledge of the hidden trail systems.
  • Mountain goat hunting on Kodiak Island is a DRAW ONLY so applications due annually between November 1 and December 15 the year prior to the hunt. Contact us prior to applying.
  • Full refund of deposit if hunter does not draw a tag.

On this Kodiak Island mountain goat hunt, you’ll target mature billies, but hunt is either sex, any weapon.

You will see multiple herds of goats daily, while glassing high mountain bowls and ridges from various lowlands in multiple drainages. Once a good billy is located, you’ll climb into range. It’s a true mountain goat hunt, but accessible and manageable for hunters of most physical abilities. We have had 100% success on goats since we started guiding goats on Kodiak Island in Alaska, but success is never guaranteed.
