Goat hunting
« on: June 26, 2012, 07:39:04 PM »
I'm starting to think I might be to old before I win the lottery for a Goat in Alberta . Does anyone have advice on a reputable outfitters in BC for a goat hunt ?
You can get a good look at a steak by sticking your head up a cows ass or you could just take the butchers word for it

I would talk to Doug Hoyne of "Skinner Creek Ranch" in the Chilcotin and he offers a combo RM Goat and Moose hunt and has some good Mulies, as well. He is on "Accurate Reloading" with the handle "Chilcotin Hillbilly" and I would hunt with him and almost booked this year, but, my wife has been ill.

There ARE huge goats in the West Kootenays and I know where they hang out, but, the terrain is just brutal and getting a real old "hawg"is not easy, even for an experienced guide who knows the area. The Chilcotin is a bit dryer and easier to navigate and there are some big billies there if you get far away from the "quad jockeys".

Yes, he seems to have many repeat customers from the US, who come to hunt Cougars and other wild cats with him. He gets results and the repeat clientele is perhaps the best indication that his outfit is worth booking with.

There are SOME fine outfits here in BC and even among the "big name" GOs, there are some REAL a**sholes, so,it is wise to really check out every outfit that interests you. I can think of a couple more, one young lad from your side of the hills, that also might suit you, but, some of these are pretty $$$$$$$$.

In northeastern BC,my first choice would be Larry Warren of "Tuchodi Outfitters" and he has a great area and is highly thought of among others in the industry. That would be a great place to hunt Stone's, goats, Grizzlies and so on, but, again, this hunting is NOT "cheap".

HTH.

Try Mike Lewis with Bolen-Lewis if you like bowhunting.  They have 100% success on archery goats and got the P&Y record a couple years back.  It got beat the following year by a local on the same mountain ranges so some great genetics in the area.  They are out fo Terrace BC.

Brian Glackier runs the outfit. Not sure how long but judging for photos I was say a good 10 years. I also bought a moose and wolf tag and it came to rite around 7000$ all in. Pretty decent price for that many tags.
