    Default Mt. Goat Help Needed

    I have a friend that wants to hunt Mt. Goat. Since he is a non-resident, he will need to hire a guide. Any suggestions? If they are negative, you are welcome to PM me.

    Thanks for the help (in advance).

    Ed Toribio of Primo Expeditions is as good as they come. He hunts out of Ketchikan.

    Having hunted both Kodiak and Southeast I would say Kodiak is an 'easier' goat hunt, mountains aren't as steep although there are no easy goat hunts. Populations on Kodiak are exploding and mixing in deer is a possibility. Jake Jefferson is a heck of a guide and he guides there though the south end may be better. As for southeast Ed Toribio is awesome, also Johnny Laird and Kurt Whitehead also guide goat in SE in some pretty country. Can't miss with any of them,

    Depends what kind of goat hunt you are looking for. A hunt in the Mistys in the early season has a high likley hood of producing a short haired B&C goat, expect to fly into a high alpine lake and do a lot of hiking. A late season hunt will get you a long haired goat, and can be boat based which is a very easy goat hunt, although more expensive. Both are great hunts, depends on the kind of goat/experience you are looking for.
