    Your question is kind of vague, do you mean overall? highest population of goats, population of B&C billies, accessability? some great areas to hunt these guys are only registration........

    Ok, register for 480 on Kodiak. After you taken your goat, ask me to take you to private property which has a healthy population of sitka blacktails, then when you've taken your deer, call me on the FRS radio and tell me to come and pick you off the beach, on our way in to the lodge ask me to put you on king salmon and halibut. This seems to be the best goat hunt.

    Sounds like a hell of a time! If you added fresh crepes with fruit, whipped cream, and chocolate syrup for breakfast it would be heaven!

    Wow!!! A guy asks for an opinion on a a goat draw and gets a shotgun blast to the face. I kind of thought info sharing is what this forum is all about.

    Mtnclimber - I like the Lake George area hunts because they are closer to where I live and makes the logistics a bit easier. Kahahawai does make a valid point though.

    Depends on your definition of “best”…best odds for a B&C goat, good population of goats, cheapest to get into the goat area, few other hunters etc, the list goes on…

    Southeast Alaska has the biggest, the most and the least hunted….hint

    The “best” draw tag in the state for goat would be the Deer mountain goat tags above Ketchikan…IMHO.. And this is why, huge goats in the area, cheap hunt, easy to get there if you can hike, limited hunters, biggest draw back is the potential for sh*ity weather!

    what's your problem, toddler?
    i think this sounds like the best goat tag available. only thing is the OP wanted to know about draw tags, and this one is over-the-counter. maybe that is too easy....

    Sorry, there are no goats left in Ketchikan. Bad choice, I think they all migrated to Kodiak.

    Woah thanks for all the input guys! I already hunt a good registration goat area yearly. But i was looking for a low percentage tag of places to get B&C billies versus a big population. And i have a friend who hunted that 13D unit, that area looks pretty big to me! But I'm looking more for a hunt in October or November as my Septembers are already booked up. (13D Hunt ends September 20th)

    There are B&C Bills thruout Goatdom ... but as ramhunter mentioned just look at any of the books ... S SE turns the Jumbo Goats (and dominates the list) and it's all over the counter registration hunts except the Deer Mt Draw.

    I dont have any hunting experience anywhere other than the Kodiak Achipeligo, but when I want a goat I have 2 choices that are a 15 minute boat ride from my village. We head out in the morning, spot them, climb for them, shoot em, pack em out and if its still daylight troll for salmon on the way home. I'm always open for new areas that offer the same kind of hunting, I dont camp or spike, I dont even like to anchor and worry about anchor drills. Just my limited experience of hunting here shared, no intention of saying we have the best. I enjoy reading about hunting in other areas in this forum.

    Toddler you did a great job at answering my question. You told me where and why. Thanks for everybodys info. This is what the forum is for in my opinion. Dylan

    That certianly is good news, as I drew that tag and will be hunting them in October, or November, or December ~ weather permitting!

    RG580 (13D) Got Hammered by a guide last year. Sorry.

    The Lake George hunt looks cool.

    Sincerely,

    I'd like to have a crack at the tag off of Cooper Lake or the Mills Creek at some point, but the draw odds are so low I never put in for those. Probably not the best B&C potential but the ease of access certainly has its appeal to me.
