  • Anybody planning an RG hunt out of Seward?

    I was interested in putting in for the RG out of Seward in unit 7 for this November. Anybody have any stories, good or bad, about the hunt? I can get to the hunting grounds but just curious on goat tips. I have hunted sheep before but never a goat, except from the backyard farm.

    They won't announce which goat draw hunts will open as a registration hunt until late October. Past history shows it doesn't happen too often.

      Are you prepared for windy, wet, freezing, steep, and slippery? Do you have the gear?
      Goat country can kill you. In fact, a goat hunter fell to his death in 2012 in PWS.

            I've been along on a couple goat hunts out of Seward. Assuming ADF&G opens up the registration hunt you're interested in, make sure your gear includes crampons (at least half-boot instep or full) and an ice axe. The steep, dead veg on those mountains is slick as snot and plenty dangerous to traverse without good traction. I use the Petzl Crab 6 instep crampons and an SMC Capra 100cm axe.

            I bet that is a miserable hunt in November.

            Cheers,

              Goat hides would be fantastic and it extends the hunting season.... especially if you didn't win a another goat permit or do an earlier season reg hunt. Crampons and an ice axe are a good recommendation for then but bring a partner on this one and go for it.

                Seems we lost 2 out of homer last year or maybe over the last few years.

                Definitely cool animals, good luck and stay safe!
