    Default Dg 891

    Reaching out to those who drew this permit. Seeing who's actually going and who's not.
    Also anyone that has hunted this area before, any info would be great.
    Thanks

    I've hunted mountain goats a lot in that area the past forty-some years. There's plenty of mountain goats in those drainages. You won't have any problem finding them when you're on the ground. Lots of places to land a plane, too. Later in the season is always better in DG891, especially in relation to aesthetics and trophy quality and accessibility.

    Yeah... no goats were harmed on that trip. October might work if the weather is kind, but September has better has a little better odds.

    Yeah, snow is a little bit problematic (sort of) during late season goat hunts. But, I've never had any issues with snow and I prefer there to be at least some snow when I hunt goats. Both of my Boone & Crockett billies that came out of that area, were killed during the last week of October.

    I came home empty handed, couldnt get to a goat i was confident would be reachable upon shooting it. Lots of bumps and bruises to remember the trip though, and lots of goats to wave at also.
