This outfitter offers two options for mountain goat hunts. Option #1 is a fly-in hunt and Option #2 is reached via truck. Both are excellent hunts with nearly identical success rates. Tags are guaranteed so no draw is required.

Both hunts have good populations of goats. Harvested goats average 9.5 inches. Shot opportunity has been 75%. Also compared to what is normally considered “goat country”, the terrain here isn’t as tough but you still need to arrive in good shape. Doing so greatly increases your odds of success and will make the hunt more enjoyable.

Option #1: Hunt mountain goats in the remote backcountry of northern British Columbia near the headwaters of the Skeena River and bordering Spatsizi Wilderness Park. Base camp is accessed via a float plane from Smithers, BC. Hunts start out from base camp and then end up at spike camps. This is not a horseback hunt.

Includes: meals, lodging, hotel arrangements in Smithers, field care of meat and trophies and government royalties. Not included: float plane charter fee, license and tags, hotel accommodations and meals in Smithers, trophy crating and shipping, liquor, tobacco and gratuities.

Getting there: fly into Vancouver and then to Smithers via Air Canada. Arrive in Smithers the day prior to the start of your hunt. Take the float plane from Smithers to the hunt area - 1 ½ hour flight. Flight departs on the day of hunt commencement.

Float plane charter cost is $1300 roundtrip +12% tax. License cost is $180 and mountain goat tag $350. Additional costs: 2.5% HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) & $200 NRHPF (Non Resident Hunting Preservation Fund)

10 Day Hunt - $8500 per hunter for 2 hunters/guide or $10,500 for 1 hunter/guide

Option #2: Instead of taking the float plane into the remote camp, hunt an area that can reached via truck. This hunt still involves hiking into the backcountry and sleeping in a backpack tent.

Includes same services as Option #1. Very limited openings on this hunt.

10 Day Hunt $8500 per hunter for 2 hunters/guide or $10,500 for 1 hunter/guide

On 2×1 hunts, both hunters must be from the same party.
