It was a pretty good discount and apparently it's the last year for non-residents to buy a goat tag over-the- counter.

It's always been a dream of mine to go on this hunt. Aug 31st - Sept6th.

Probably will bring the rifle too on this hunt. Don't want to go home empty-handed as I doubt I'll ever have the opportunity to do this again.

Outfitter said there's room for one more. If you're interested, send me a message.

Curious, is the outfitter's name Scott? I know he had a cancellation out there for goat.

If it's Scott, he'll take good care of you and work his butt off. I got my sheep with him in 2013.

Price discounted even further! Need a 2nd Hunter. OK - Just talked to the guide for this hunt. Because there are so few days between now and the hunt, and I really need a 2nd hunter to make this work for this 2x1 (2 hunters to 1 guide) hunt, he has offered to do this for $6500 each.

That includes the supercub/beaver flight out from Anchorage to the Chugach Mountains where we will be hunting, food, tents, etc. Everything except tag & hunting license. ($300ish).

Please PM ASAP if you are interested in doing this hunt with me.

Sure wish I could get an OTC tag for the chugach. I had to draw mine last year.

You must be going in Sep?

From: coonazz
28-Jun-16
Yes - Aug 31st - Sept6th

Jeremy's goat hunts are in unit 14, did you draw a tag? Or are you hunting another area of the Chugach?

From: LINK

I believe he stated he's buying an otc tag.

From: coonazz
28-Jun-16
Yes - buying an OTC tag.

From: Nick Muche
28-Jun-16
There are none in 14.

Anyhow good luck I'm sure it'll be a great time.

From: coonazz
29-Jun-16
Time is running out. If I can't find a 2nd hunter - I don't go either. ($6500 is the max for me. The 1x1 rate is more than I'm going to spend.)

Lake George area is OTC registration permit.

Ah yes, forgot the regs for 14 were split into two sections.

I'm at least a little interested. What have the success rates been over the past couple years for archery?

From: coonazz

Guide says its very high success with a rifle. As in - he's never had a hunter come back without a goat. Now - that being said, this is AK and this is hunting.

I'm bringing my bow and rifle.

"I'm bringing my bow and rifle."

If you are willing to take both, leave your bow at home. No shame in shooting a goat with a rifle, but trust me you will not want to be carrying both on your back in the Chugach or very many other goat hunting areas.

The only other option I would suggest if you have a strong desire to shoot a goat with your bow is to hunt with your bow and default to the guide's rifle if necessity dictates.

-from the man who carried a rifle and a bow on his goat hunt and shot his goat with a rifle. :)

well - pretty disappointed. My buddy that was really trying to go with me on this hunt had to back out.

Now it doesn't look like I'll be able to go because I can't find a second hunter to take advantage of this 2 hunters/1 guide last minute price. If I were to go solo, it would cost me quite a bit more (around $10K) and that's just more than I can spend right now.

Ugh - this is a trip of a lifetime and really a one-time opportunity. This is the last year these tags in Alaska will be over-the-counter for Mountain Goat - Going forward, it's all drawing/lotto and prices of those tags just doubled. (http://www.adfg.alaska.gov/static/ho...cense_fees.pdf

It's $6500 for this fully guided, fly out, Alaska Mountain Goat hunt of a lifetime with an awesome guide/outfitter. If anyone wants to go, please let me know ASAP.

(We would leave for this hunt in 59 days.)

for $3500 more you get 100 percent of all the stalks and all the guides attention, might be worth it, right now your at 50% of the action if you add a hunter

Zebrakiller - that is so true, but my hunting dollar is spread so thin right now.

June - Took my dad, wife, and 13-year-old daughter to Quebec for us to all hunt bear. (I paid for everything, but hunted with my daughter and never even touched my own bow. Totally worth it - She shot a nice boar with only minutes left of light on the last day. My 74-year-old dad shot one on the first day.)

Sept - The bear outfitter called and let us know that they have an cancellation/opening for archery moose, so my wife is going on her first solo (without me) moose hunt.

Oct. - I have an archery moose hunt in BC that I've planned/booked 2 years ago.

Hey Nick, I can almost see Lake George from my office window! That pesky Mat and Pioneer Peak get in the way.

Who have you booked your moose hunt with. Looking for BC outfitter now for 2017

02-Jul-16
The only person more desperate than you is Jeremy:)

At this point he'll likely do the 2x1 price rather than not guiding anyone. Have a great hunt! C
