Jason had a great combo hunt in late Aug / early Sept '06
Your mountain goat hunting adventure starts on the Ketchikan waterfront, catching a float plane -- destination the Misty Fjords National Monument Wilderness Area.
Pat and his late August Mt Goat
After flying into an alpine lake, we usually negotiate 1,000 to 2,500 elevation feet of steep terrain to get to our backpack tent sites. For the next three to ten days we climb around the mountains glassing, spotting and stalking "the beast that is the color of winter. "

Weather plays a significant role in determining the enjoyment and success of your mountain goat hunt. The best weather generally occurs during August and early September, and generally deteriorates into increased rain, fog, and wind as the season progresses.
This early October Mt Goat was taken on Glens '04 hunt
Southeast Alaska mountain goat hunters must choose between trophy quality and weather conditions. Earlier season hunts have better weather but shorter-haired goats. Late season hunts for longer-haired goats have a greater chance of being plagued by nasty weather.
Physical and mental conditioning is very important in preparation for these backpack style adventures. This is a very physical and demanding hunt. Muskeg Excursions knows what it takes to make it an enjoyable, safe and successful experience.
Except for our early August hunts our Mt Goat
hunts are scheduled for 10+ hunting days. The hunt includes relocating
to Prince of Wales Island for Sitka Blacktail; Black Bear; Fishing and /
or Sightseeing if time permits after tagging your Goat.
Mikael took this nice Goat and Black Bear during his '05 September hunt
We always suggest that you tag up for a wolf or wolverine, when season is open. We have had hunters that have had shot opportunities and have taken wolf on the Goat hunt. Wolverine season is open early for the first time in '07.
George took this B&C Mt Goat on his Oct '07 hunt
