September and October (6-day Hunt)
Drawing a mountain goat tag on Kodiak Island is the best value we know of for this species. With drawing odds of about 1 in 4, lucky tag winners are going to realize an approximate savings of 30% compared against other hunts of similar quality. Clients who draw this tag should be ready for a physical backpack-style hunt in some of the most stunning country in North America. This is so much more than a mountain goat hunt though. For those who finish early, Sitka blacktail, silver fox and fabulous duck hunting for some great collector species of the world awaits. Typically, you will fly into Anchorage and overnight. The next morning you will fly commercially to Kodiak City and then catch a short charter to the lodge, where the outfitter will greet you on the beach. You will then shakedown your gear, fill up on a fabulously nutritious meal and then hike into the high country with your professional guide. Again, this is a backpack hunt in rugged country, so you must arrive in relatively decent shape. For those who do, harvest opportunity is very close to 100% each year.

“Hey folks, let me tell you, upon returning from this camp I must say, this trip will be forever burned into memory. Was it difficult – yes, but those are the adventures one remembers most. We hiked, we glassed, we survived on the mountain. You talk about gorgeous country … Kodiak is tough to beat when it comes to scenery … absolutely breathtaking. The goats, the deer and the ducks – all completely awesome. Nine thousand dollars for this mountain goat hunt is a complete steal, and if you need a Sitka blacktail, the extra two thousand is a no-brainer. For anyone wanting to hunt mountain goat up in the alpine of Kodiak, I highly recommend applying for this tag.” Eric Pawlak – Director – WTA TAGS
