I drew a mt. goat tag for the south road system in Kodiak and was looking for some input from others who have done the hunt regarding locations to begin.
I plan to take the ferry to Kodiak so I have my own vehicle and am figuring on going probably mid-Sept, so as to have a chance at an animal with a thicker coat. Plus, I figure if unsuccesful I will still have another month or so to plan another trip before the tag runs out.
Planning to primarily day hike in, but also planning to bring my backpacking tent, etc so I can hike in further off the road to increase my chances. I have no problem doing quite a bit of hiking and camping overnight to get away from the crowds.
I hunted Kodiak last year (Larsen Bay) for deer, so I'm familiar with the potential weather and terrain.
Any input you have would be greatly appreciated.
