Mountain Goat Hunts on Kodiak Island

kodiak-mountain-goat-hunt

Hunting on Kodiak Island has never been better, with mountain goat and Sitka blacktail deer populations exceptionally strong in recent years. This outfitter’s success rates of 100% to date on goat and deer hunts are evidence of this. Decades of experience will assure clients that they will be with one of the very best operators on Kodiak and every legal effort will be taken to maintain client satisfaction on every hunt. Due to the remote location far from the Kodiak road system, tags for goat and deer can be purchased over the counter and by easy registration, allowing clients to plan their hunt without the uncertainty that comes with permits in other areas issued by Alaska’s unpredictable random draw.

Travel to Kodiak Island

kodiak-island

Clients will fly to Anchorage and connect on to Kodiak. Four to five flights per day service Kodiak from Anchorage on Alaskan and Raven Airlines. The outfitter will arrange for clients to charter from Kodiak to camp via Andrews Airways for a scenic flight (about 75 miles) to the far southwest end of Kodiak Island. Clients may share the cost of the charter with other group members as well as with outgoing or incoming hunters using the same flight. The full cost of the charter if not shared is $795 each way. It is recommended to plan to arrive in Kodiak the evening prior to the scheduled charter flight to camp or on the earliest morning flight the same day.

Kodiak Island Hunting Licenses & Tags

mountain-goat-hunting-guides

Mountain goat licenses require an online or in-person registration (unit RG480) as well as the purchase of a locking goat tag ($600) and a non-resident hunting license ($160). Despite the Alaska Department of Fish and Game’s efforts to reduce goat numbers in this unit by now allowing the harvest of two goats per hunter per season, the outfitter prefers to limit each client to the traditional harvest of one goat per person to sustain the high numbers of trophy billies. Deer tags are $300 each and non-residents are currently allowed to buy up to three per season. Reindeer/caribou tags are over the counter and $650 for non-residents.

Additionally, this area offers fishing opportunities for rainbows, arctic char and salmon. A fishing license must be purchased in advance and can be obtained in conjunction with an annual hunting license.

Kodiak Island Mountain Goat Hunting Season

kodiak-island-mountain-goats

Due to the high numbers of goats that inhabit this part of Kodiak Island, the hunting season has been extended to start August 20 and run seven consecutive months through March 20, with goat hunts offered by the outfitter primarily from October 1 to November 30. October is the most popular month to hunt goat, as this period offers a good amount of daylight, a lower risk of adverse weather when compared to later-season hunts, and excellent hair quality. As the season progresses later into the winter, the amount of useable daylight decreases and the risk of poor weather increases. Although the season for Sitka deer begins in August and ends in late December, the months of October and November are also recommended.

Kodiak Island Mountain Goat Hunt

Expect a nine-day schedule including arrival and departure days with seven (7) full days of hunting when booking a one-on-one guided hunt. Two-on-one guided hunts are offered for friends and family by request and at a discounted rate, and include three additional hunting days for a total of 10 with a 12-day schedule. This extra time is to ensure ample hunting days for each of the two hunters to harvest a trophy billy while accounting for the possibility of poor weather. The outfitter has maintained an incredible success rate of 100% to date with only mature billies taken on all past hunts (no nannies). In most cases clients can expect to harvest their goat within the first few days of the hunt. Billies over 10” have been taken on this hunt with an average around 9”.

Mountain goat hunting is considered the most dangerous hunt in North America and choosing a hunt on Kodiak Island offers a much safer hunting experience and at lower altitudes than most comparable hunts in British Columbia, the Chugach Range or southeast Alaska. Additionally, hunting on Kodiak offers not only the highest chance of harvest possible but a better option for clients who may be older or with limited physical conditioning; however, all mountain goat hunts will require a physical and mental investment. The better the physical condition a client can arrive in, the more enjoyable of an experience they are likely to have. On Kodiak, clients will camp at an elevation close to 500 feet and may hunt as high as 2,500. Hunting is conducted by spot and stalk and strong numbers of goats can be expected. Hunters who tag out early may continue to hunt for Sitka blacktail deer, fish for salmon, trout and char, stay in camp and relax, or elect for an early return to Kodiak.

Kodiak Island Sitka Blacktail Deer Hunts

sitka-deer-hunting-kodiak

The numbers of Sitka blacktail deer and the quality of trophies is near an all-time high and now is the time to hunt them. The outfitter’s guide-use areas are among the most remote regions of the island with strong numbers of deer. Trophy quality is excellent, with 3×3, 3×4 and 4×4 (not including brow tines) bucks scoring from the mid-90” range up on average.

Five-day, one-on-one guided deer hunts and seven-day, two-on-one guided deer hunts are offered from early October to late November. Success on mature bucks can be expected. Alaska allows each hunter up to three deer tags per season. Two bucks per person are included with this hunt.
