Mountain Goat Hunts in British Columbia

We offer a limited number of guided mountain goat hunts each season. Mountain goat outfitted hunts take place throughout the longest season available for mountain goat hunts in North America. Our mountain goat hunting season begins August 1st and extends an entire seven months, until the end of February.

Our guiding area is located in the Northern Coastal Mountains of British Columbia, the heart of the world’s best producing area for trophy mountain goats. A new world record mountain goat was taken in the late summer of 2022 in the Northern Coastal Mountains barely 100 miles from our territory. Mountain goats over 10+ inches are normal in this area, not an exception. The spectacular scenery of the Coastal Mountain range, and our goat area in particular, provides an exciting and remote wilderness adventure.

August and September offer guided mountain goat hunts in alpine areas. We offer both fully guided mountain goat hunting with horses and with backpacks, sometimes a combination of the two. Goat hunters will arrive at our Skeena Base Camp and meet the guides and go through checklists to organize for departure the following morning. On the first leg of the hunt the hunters may travel by ATV and then switch to horses or continue on as a backpack hunt. Either way, goat hunters should expect to spend several hours a day hunting on foot. Days are spent glassing for billies and planning stalks to have an optimal position on a trophy billy. Being in good physical shape is a prerequisite to an enjoyable and rewarding mountain goat hunt in any season.

October, November and December offer guided late season mountain goat hunts that produce excellent long-haired billies. These hunts often take place in rutting areas, when billies are found lower on the mountains than with many other guided mountain goat hunts.

February hunts take place in wintering areas. In February the mountain goats have long winter hair similar to the late season mountain goats, while the longer days in February allow us to hunt higher up the mountains into various bluff systems where the wintering mountain goats call home. This hunt is our most unique mountain goat hunt. Snow-machines and snowshoes allow us to access deep into great mountain goat habitat.

Our mountain goat hunts are 10 days of hunting, plus your arrival and departure days, resulting in a 12-day hunting experience. Because we may use horses for our fall hunts and our late season hunts occur lower on the mountains, we can accommodate a variety of physical abilities. Still, a hunter should be in very good physical condition and should expect to do some climbing in difficult mountain terrain.
