Chugach Mountain Goat success!
Just got back home to Texas. This was (by far) the toughest hunt I've ever done. So incredibly blessed to take this giant goat.
Nothing comes easy in the Chugach! Congrats! Mike
Nice goat. Congratulations!!!
Congrats that's a beauty !!
That's a nice goat. I've heard about the Chugach. Some big Dall sheep in there.

Congrats on your goat! He's a biggun'

Wow! Congrats on a great goat!
ki-ke X2. Details would be great.
that's a dandy Billy .....
I guess I'll just ask the question I think others have been beating around the bush to ask. Since there is no bow in the photo, bow kill or rifle kill?
According to post on Alaska Hunting Forum 542 yard rifle shot. Still one heck of a nice goat.
Interesting blood pattern... dude from Texas...
Lol JK man. That's a great goat! Grats! The big smile rounds out a great picture.
Good luck, Robb
Was it a bow hunt that turned into a rifle kill? Guessing so since it is posted on Bowsite.
What's the story? Who was the outfitter? What unit? Give more color to an awesome goat harvest.
Earltex, you sure ask a lot of questions, haha How are things over there? No muley yet for Blake last I heard. Hopefully his Rosie hunt goes better. Coonazz story is on TXBH. I think he is flying home now. I imagine he will update this soon.
Great goat from a rugged and beautiful place. Congrats
Way to go Tony!! When you get settled, tell us the story!
great goat!!! Congrats I agreed with you, goat hunt is very tough
I don't think the man claims his arrow took the goat, he's showing us the goat he shot and that's good enough for me. It's my dream hunt and Well Done!
Awesome! Who did you go with?
Congrats on a great goat!
Congrats on a (appropriate adjective to be filled in only when the weapon used is identified) goat!
Great job! Looks like a giant! Congratulations!
Thanks all. Been a long couple of days.
When I arrived in Alaska I was greeted by the news that the AK Fish & Game had an emergency order truncating this 6 day season to a 3 day season. Still - I brought my rifle and bow with me in hopes that I would find a nice goat within range. The 1st day came and went without seeing anything within stalkable distance or reachable without super-human flying abilities. The 2nd day, we saw this billy about a mile away and decided on a plan. We had to go down and around and then back up a valley to get to a spot where we thought we might get a shot. Well - when we got into place (about 2 hours later), we weren't exactly sure the goat was still in the same bowl where we saw him before we set off to get closer to him. So we waited. Waited almost 2 hours and right before we were about to give up, he came walking out of the bowl. He started walking towards us at first, but then changed directions. Decided it was now or never when he was 542 yards away.
A couple shots later, I had my first mountain goat down.
Score or length of horns? Thanks dream billy for sure !!!!
9 1/2 on both sides. (Haven't scored him yet.)
Why did they shorten the season? Just curious.
was this the one taken near Lake George?
That's awesome. Who did you hunt with?
I leave next week for the same area. Looking like brutal weather, again. Just my luck!
I hunted with Jeremy Ruesink (Rogue Expeditions).
Yes - off of Inner Lake George. Not sure why they shortened the season to 3 days for this registration hunt.
Great job, Tony! Congratulations.
Very cool. Congrats on your goat. I hope to hunt them someday.
Heavy and carries the weight all the way looks like a Booner to me
Awesome billiy, congrats.
Congrats on the awesome billy, did they say why they cut the season back to 3 days?
