I’ve been on a lot of hunts over the past years, and can honestly say this one of my best trips to date! With animals in every direction, the hardest decision was figuring out which Goat we were going after. That is a true rarity these days. I can’t wait to go back to hunt with this outfit!

Hunting Mountain Goats has been one of my lifelong goals. Always thinking such a hunt was just out of my financial bracket, I never thought much of pursuing it. That was until Russ Meyer gave me a call. Knowing that Goats were on my bucket list, Russ got the ball rolling. Before I knew I was on my to Alaska to hunt Mountain Goats.

Upon arrival I was met by my guide. To say we hit it off would be an understatement. After grabbing my luggage, we were off to camp. Camp on this trip was different from what I was used to. For the next week we were staying on a Yacht! This was the kind of camp I could get used to!

after a good night of sleep, my guide and I were off to chase some goats. within ten minutes of the boat ride, we were spotting goats. After going through our options, we finally picked out a lone goat bedded on the side of a cliff! Two hours later, and we were standing above the lone billy. Not quite big enough, we moved on. The next day, my guide and I found a bachelor group of billies. Three of which were worthy of an arrow. Within a few hours, we were in archery range of the 5 bedded billies. A half hour later, and I sent an arrow through the 9+” Billy!
