The Alaskan Bowhunter Association is excited to offer this incredible opportunity to someone! We’ve secured one of the very best Mountain Goat hunts available and the hunt will take place in September of 2021!

Primo Expeditions owner, Ed Toribio has been hunting and guiding hunters for goats for 30 years in the Ketchikan area. This area is known to produce some exceptionally large Billy’s where record book horns are not uncommon. In fact, Ed’s crew harvests numerous goats exceeding the Boone and Crocket minimum each season. With very few exceptions, there is not a better location to harvest a trophy Mountain Goat than Ed’s area.

This hunt is 10 days, to include 2 travel days. In 2020 Ed’s guides produced two archery mountain goats for their clients. This is a true wilderness adventure in areas that get very few human visitors (on foot). South East Alaska can be rugged and the weather can be relentless, which is why the hunter will have 8 days. That allows ample time to traverse into goat country and also mitigate lost days due to inclement weather.

The ABA wishes you the best of luck in winning this offering and we thank you in advance for your support!

Is the guide a bowhunter? Sounds like a good deal.

From: Nick Muche

Good call Hunt! Almost forgot to mention, the person that will be guiding this hunt is one hell of a Bowhunter!

Is the hunt transferrable to another hunter if one is lucky enough to win it? Asking this cause I love supporting the Alaskan Bow hunters and buy a ticket every time I see a raffle. Dream hunt for me but I know for a fact my knees could not handle the mountains as we speak. (Need knee surgery). Regardless I'll still be buying a ticket.

I’m in, thanks to all the guys at the ABA for putting this together and good luck to all the bowsiters. Hope one of us can win and document this adventure

From: Pyrannah
31-Jan-21
I’d buy one but goats would be well out of my comfort range when traversing that ground

Good luck to everyone!

From: Nick Muche
31-Jan-21
Absolutely this would be transferable.

From: Schmitty78

From: TEmbry

I can’t wait to pass the torch and no longer be the one running these raffles so that I can buy tickets myself. This will be an absolutely amazing hunt for whoever wins.

Can you bring a non-shooter friend along with? If so would there be a fee?

05-Feb-21
Who one last year?

05-Feb-21
Have never won a hunt in my lifetime and I have been in a pile of raffles etc. I have another chance now.

From: Nick Muche

"Can you bring a non-shooter friend along with? If so would there be a fee?"

That would have to be worked out with the outfitter, but I am sure some type of agreement could be made.

"Who one last year?" - Which one are you interested in hearing who won?

From: Brotsky
05-Feb-21
I never win anything so you guys are welcome to my donation :)

Nick, is the ABA doing a brown bear raffle this year too?

From: Nick Muche

Matt, we don't have a Brown Bear raffle planned for this year, but as soon as this one sells out we have something special in the works for the next one!

Doing well folks! Thanks for the support thus far, let’s get the rest of these sold so we can draw a winner!

04-Mar-21
How many are left Nick

From: LBshooter
04-Mar-21
Some beautiful pics, but a tip to future photos. Remember the third rule when shooting photos, and if Nick were to put his ram pic back up it would make more sense to all on the third rule. Don't center yourself in the pic, put yourself in 1/3 with your backround in 2/3 of the pic, makes for a much better photo.

LBShooter x2. Nick’s photos are some of the best.

TTT for anyone who may have missed it! We would love to draw this hunt at our Banquet in April, hopefully we can sell the remaining 100 or so tickets before then! Thank you to everyone thus far, it's very much appreciated.

From: Nick Muche
11-Mar-21
If anyone was on the fence due to the dates of this hunt, the outfitter is flexible and will work with the winner to establish dates that are acceptable to both parties!

How are you coming on tickets? I’m sure I can talk my buddy into another. And pry myself.

From: Nick Muche
22-Mar-21
Haha! We seem to have hit a lull in sales, but with any luck over the next month or so we can get this thing sold out and drawn. Thank you to all that have supported us thus far, it's really appreciated!

Nick- Make that 69....I'm a winner either way!!!! lol

15-Apr-21
Bighorn- it is NOT a Kodiak bear on that raffle. It’s on Unimak island off the peninsula. Yes still big bear potential but the logistics of the hunt are huge, and weather could be a big factor. Very limited guide selection for NR and very limited transportation options for Residents.

From: caribou77
26-Apr-21
In for the third time. Can we just end this already so I do have to buy more. Plus I’m excited to donate to the next raffle, I’m thinking it’s a sheep hunt....

From: Nick Muche
26-Apr-21
We are trying! Not too many left at this point but if they don't sell by July 1, we will draw with what we have sold. Thank you to everyone so far, hope we can get past the finish line soon!

From: caribou77
26-Apr-21
Just giving you guys flack Nick. I don’t mind the donation at all and it’s fun hoping and dreaming. Just hope a good photographer and storyteller wins and shares with us all at home cheering for them.

26-Apr-21
Hope you can sell them all and I’ll be crossing my fingers

From: TEmbry

We are about 80% there on ticket sales. I doubt it makes it until July 1st but if it does I’ll be calling someone then either way!
