    I have seen a couple up that way - not sure that they are always in there - but I might share a camping spot location with you where we had a huge ole billy walk right by us while we were scouting for an archery sheep hunt.

    I second the idea of useing Bird Creek for access to good goat hunting in the park. A couple years ago we were moose hunting and hiked back into a side valley a ways back and saw a couple of decent billies to the south of the creek. Good luck. Ron.

    I sheep hunted the area in aug.. There was a mammoth goat hanging out on top point of north side bird creek and east of bird pass. Several others around that area but I could see this giant goat's horns with bare eyes from other side of pass. Good luck. Oh, don't forget waders, you will need to cross bird creek about 5 miles up and it can get pretty sketchy.

    Can't you even take a quad part way in on that bird creek trail?
    I've hiked up bird ridge before and spotted goats on the east/south side of bird creek. I would do some early season scouting and try and figure out some access routes. Those mountains are pretty darn steep on that side.

    I went into that area from the trailhead 2 years ago a couple times and had no issues with crossing the creek. I did take off my boots and cross it in my crocks tho.
