Mountain Goat, Canada

High Mountain Hunt in Canada B.C. on mountain goat is an impressive experience. In the Chilcotin Mountains in southern Canada B.C. are the approximately 500,000 acres of hunting grounds our organizer takes care of. A landscape, incredibly beautiful and hard to describe. You have to experience it yourself. Steep rocky regions with barren alpine meadows and fertile valleys shape the picture of this almost deserted landscape. Stalking the coveted mountain goat on horseback or on foot is wilderness hunting in its most glorious form.

Mountain Goat (Oreamnos americanus)

This type of goat is native to much of North America and can be found here in the northern Rocky Mountains, western Canada and the northwestern United States. They can reach live weights of up to 130 kg with a shoulder height of up to 120 cm (the females are slightly smaller).

Particularly striking is the massive physique and the creamy white fur. Both sexes wear the short, blue-black, curved back horns. The horns of the goats (nannies) are usually a bit longer but also much thinner and more outwardly bent than the bucks (Billys).

Currently best snow-goat trophies are found in southern Canada B.C. Adult Billys usually wear horns between 6 and 8 inches (15 cm to 20 cm), and huge specimens also reach 10 inches (about 25 cm). The base circumference can be up to 6 inches (15 cm).


Mountain goats live exclusively in cold, snowy high mountains and glacier margins. They are very skilled climbers. Older bucks are usually loners, the goats live with young ones in small packs.

They posess extremely good eyesight and sense movements even over long distances.

Choose a rugged, high-performance caliber (6.5 x 68, 8x 68 S, or .300 group caliber).

It is recommended to additionally mount a bipod to the weapon to ensure more stability for the shot. In addition, you should still carry the lightest possible binoculars with at least 10x magnification, a spotting scope and a rangefinder.

 

Accommodation

On the day of arrival, you will stay in a hotel in Vancouver. The next morning you will be picked up by employees of our partner and driven by car directly into the main camp. While the main camp is still quite comfortable, the spike camps (outdoor camps) are very spartan. These are simple tent camps which are dismantled directly after the hunt.

 

The food is plentiful, tasty and good. There are e.g. Barbecue ribs, chicken in different variations, lasagna and much more. All meals are not canned, but freshly prepared in the main camp. The spike camps serve simpler finished meals.
