    Default Kodiak DG471

    My hunting partner and I have already done quite a bit of research on this area...but I was hoping to get some first hand experiences from folks who have hunted goat during this hunt. Yes, I have done a search here but some of the information is a bit old and I was hoping to get some current info. We are booked with Sea Hawk next October to fly us out there.


    Thanks in advance!

    Where on Kodiak does the DG471 hunt take place?

    Center Mountain, a good full day hike from the road to hit the edge of the area, great hike, all ridge running. Had a buddy took a nice billy there the first weekend of Nov this year.

    Map of the DG471 area. I know some people hike in from the beach on either side of the ridge.

    I killed a decent billy in there in '11. Not an easy hunt, but very doable with some hiking. BE IN SHAPE.
    Bears are everywhere in there on Wild creek. Be prepared.
    The alders are wicked, but once past them it's beautiful up there with some good goats possible.

    DG471 is fun; but you'll earn your billy.

    Thanks for the response, much appreciated. Yea...one thing my hunting partner and I will not let deter us is not being in shape. If we don't get goats, so be it but it isn't going to be because my ass can't get up the hill! haha...

    My partner and I are headed down 10/2...flying out with Roland on the 3rd. We are hoping to get into the small high lake but are preparing to hike up in case we are dropped off on the beach. We are trying our best to minimize our weight going in without making oursevles too miserable for a week.

    Any other information or photos would be greatly appreciated! We are finalizing our gear list and are ready to go...tick tock, tick tock.

    Have come in from the kizuyak side and just went up the knife ridge and dropped a good billy. Get on top and stay on top!

    I followed BRWNBR's advice and came in from the kizuyak side. Not an easy walk up with the alders but easy walking once you get above the brush. We got a nice billy. Lots and lots of bears down on the river. Take a good tent that can handle the wind as you can be pretty exposed up on top. Bring a sat phone. We called Seahawk from the top and met them at the bay later that day.
