We had a moose hunter postpone his trip to another year. I asked our guide if he would rather me to try to rebook it with another moose hunt or goat and he said goat. So here's an opportunity to get in on a goat hunt with Gavin as your guide September 21-30, 2023. A moose and black bear tag can be added on. Prices are on our website. 1-250-697-6249.

I hope someone on Bowsite jumps on this. I did the same hunt last year but a week earlier and it was a great hunt. Gavin, the guide for the hunt Babine is offering, is a very experienced bowhunting guide. Babine's area has a ton of goats, we saw 28 goats the morning I shot my goat.

Yikes, I always thought when I first started hunting that I may be able to afford a great sheep or goat hunt when I was older. Obviously that isn't ever going to happen!

Only $100 to add a coyote to your goat hunt :)

I believe that goat is the most attainable new P&Y world record. And I have seen at least one billy there that would do it. And a couple more that were contenders.

So you sayin there’s a chance, Rod ;-)

Babine’s rates are in Canadian funds. I did a bunch of research on goat hunts the past couple of years. Short of drawing a tag in the states, you’re not going to find a more affordable goat hunt anywhere, plus, after speaking with a good number of past clients, several of whom are bowsiters, I got nothing but glowing reports about Lloyd and Jack’s operation. I’m really looking forward to my hunt with them in 2024.

I would jump on this hunt in a heartbeat...but I'm already booked to hunt goats with Babine this September from the 10th-19th. Really looking forward to this hunt!

Agree 100% with Troy...the reputation of Babine Guide Outfitters is tough to beat! Take a look at the Outfitter reports here on Bowsite...and you will see what I mean.

Looks like I was able to get this hunt, now just need to get the funds together.

It’s going to be a busy September.

I did a goat hunt in 2015, didn’t get the outcome I wanted do to me not being fully prepared, I will be ready this time. Anyone that wants to share information or pictures please do I love seeing them!

Nanuke, You will have a great hunt with the Babine Guide Outfitters crew. Did a hunt a few years ago with them and it is definitely a hunt you will not forget. Good luck to you and please post after your hunt.

"Anyone that wants to share information or pictures please do I love seeing them!"

I did a write up of last year's mountain goat hunt with Babine in this section of Bowsite entitled, " '22 Mtn. Goat w/ Babine Guide Outfitters". Hopefully you can get some information and pictures that will help you. You can also message me with any questions.

You are in for a great hunt.

Only 17,000 ...that would be out of my price range. Looks like an awesome hunt

I will try and do a report, once I get back. I have two big trips planned for September so might be more than one report. $17000 any way you cut it, but only getting older and prices are only going up, I will have to tighten the belt for a few years… love the goat kill pictures!

Bou’bound deserves a trophy for his ability to bring up threads right after the hunt ends or right before it starts - not to mention the old stories he brings to the top for rereads. It doesn’t go unnoticed!

Well the hunt is over and I was unsuccessful in filling my goat tag, did see a lot of goats, we had a lot of bad luck during the course of the hunt, felt jinked right out of the box, I will do my best to explain.

Dang it! Was pulling for you on this hunt. Curious to find out what your misfortune was.

From: Nanuke22

When I got to camp I meet Lloyd and he said Gavin would be by shortly to go over gear, I had everything in order as this was my second time doing a goat hunt, Gavin said he was hunting across the valley the week before and saw a bunch of goats in some lower areas, and that we would camp right underneath them and then just do a short walk from spike camp and we would should be into goats right away, and he said I shouldn’t be to picky as bad weather was coming.

So the following morning we take a short UTV ride in and then start 3.5 hour hike in approximately 5 miles, this is we’re my bad luck starts, so as we are getting to the last 200 yards of our hike in, Gavin goes to me do you hear horses? I said no but I do hear voices, so we turn around and look above us and see two people hiking, he said no big deal they shouldn’t bother the goats to bad. So we continued to spike camp and right at camp had two mountain bikers go past us, I was like how many more people are going to be up here…

So we set up camp quickly and head to start glassing for goats, when we get to the first glassing spot and see two people and we talk to them and they said they were testing the old mine and that there were two other people with them, so we asked where they were camping and they said no camping they were getting dropped in and picked every day with a helicopter right were the goats were, oh great.

I told Gavin we should try a different spot , but he wanted to stick with the plan since all the work we did to get up there.

We did find goats but you know where they were up in the cliffs.

So first morning we go out and we find a goat in a pretty good spot across the valley about a 5 mile hike one way so we do it. Long story short we get to 30 yards of goat but he winds us, and as soon as I draw he takes off, I thought he was going to stop on this one ledge at 45 yards and tried to anticipate him stopping there and shot but he never stopped and my arrow was well behind him.

Well that was that 5 miles there 5 miles back.

I will finish more of the bad luck later getting on plane home.

Thanks for sharing the details. Oh the travails of the mountain bow hunter. Good for you giving it such a solid effort right in the heels of your Greenland hunt Steve
