  • Spring Kodiak goats

    So Iím planning on taking my two boys to Kodiak in early March for some spring goat hunting. Looking for a hunt partner to split air charter costs up with and hunt together or not. I have dates set and kinda a clue. I have hunted alaska before and been to Kodiak a couple times as well.
    Lemme know if anyone else is looking to go and team up!

          This is the opportunity of a lifetime!! I wish I could do it, but will be heading to Nebraska for the birth of my first grand child in March,

          Best of luck, and to whomever gets to go on this trip, I am envious.

                    Can a chubby old guy make it? If so put me down as next on the list. My Wife won't let me hunt by myself any more so I just haven't been going.

                    I just asked if I could go goat hunting on Kodiak...I might have to fix up the dog house. Her nephew came up with a group to hunt deer a couple of years ago. Two of them were watching from above as another two hunters put the sneek on a deer while a bear followed the hunters.

                    If my number comes up let me know how much $ to set aside.

                      Age is only a number, but imo, it totally depends on how "chubby" you think you are. I'm 63, only slightly, what I would consider overweight, if at all, and still work 5 days a week sometimes throwing around 1 1/8" plywood all day, and I still wouldn't want to go unless I put myself on a pretty regimented workout program, like I used to even in my younger guiding days when I knew I would be sheep hunting, or needing to pack out moose or caribou. Only you know how strong you feel, but if you try and kid yourself then you're asking for trouble. It's not so much the little extra weight, but the leg strength and wind you'll need. I'm sure I could go on a goat hunt right now and "probably" do ok, but would I want to knowing how I feel now and still have a good time? Or make sure I got in as good a shape as I could and KNOW I would. Kodiak goat hunting is not like hunting goats in their normal terrain on mainland Alaska, but there WILL be climbing and possibly a lot of it. Try something right now and maybe give yourself an answer to your question. See how hard it is to pump off 50 deep knee bends at a pretty good clip. That should tell you a whole lot about yourself and attempting a hunt like this. I've been wanting to do a Kodiak goat hunt myself for many years, and have been contemplating going with Jake as well. I know I could get in shape, but don't know if I could take the time off work.
                      Sheep hunting...... the pain goes away, but the stupidity remains...!!!

                        Goats are on my list. Always had respect for them.
                        Depending on what time in March if Iím done freighting materials to my cabin sounds like a great hunt.

                              You may already know this, but be careful with the hides if you are keeping them. We had problems with hair slipping even tho the his was kept really cold. When the taxidermist asked around to some others, they had had similar problems.
