    Default Boat hunting Mountain goats

    I have a goat permit for the Fox river area, ( kachemak Bay, Kenai Peninsula) I live in homer. I am interested in information anyone has on hunting goats with a bow. I hunt with a recurve. I have a 50 and 60 lbs bow. I have shoot white tail deer and small game with it, but never hunted mountain goat. Any advice or thoughts on the matter would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Get above them, there defense is to escape up into the cliffs, I have taken a couple of goats within bow range by approaching from above.

    RR: I am in Moose Pass (formerly in Juneau) and have longbow hunted for goats extensively. I could type for hours but.....

    Patience can get you CLOSE shots, my last one was at 7 feet, sub 15 yards is very doable. Be EXTREMELY careful to place arrows on the shoulder, NOT behind as the guts come very far forward.

    steve was hunting goats back in the day the atlatl's were invented. Before that. They scaled the cliffs in loin cloths and sling shots.

    7 feet! You must be wearing "Ode to Billy Goat Cologne". We'll read about you leading one out with a rope some day.
