Alaskan Bowhunters Mountain Goat Raffle
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.
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
I’d buy one but goats would be well out of my comfort range when traversing that ground
Good luck to everyone!
Absolutely this would be transferable.
Awesome! I’ve been waiting for another one of these! I’m in:)
Bucket list hunt, Im in!!!!
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.
In for the win!
Good luck every one!
Great hunt and great organization!
Here is an 11 3/8" Billy taken with Ed a few years ago to spike up some more interest!
As you can tell from the pics, it’s always sunny in Southeast! :)
Is it September yet??
Can you bring a non-shooter friend along with? If so would there be a fee?
Have never won a hunt in my lifetime and I have been in a pile of raffles etc. I have another chance now.
"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?
I never win anything so you guys are welcome to my donation :)
I’m in, glad to support this organization
Didn't get in the raffle but did sign up for membership to the ABA. Good luck, fellas!
Here's another fantastic 11" Billy taken with Ed Toribio! Thanks in advance for your support!
I'm in, sucker for raffles.
Is this sold out yet or what :)
Beautiful country to be hunting goats in!
Nick, is the ABA doing a brown bear raffle this year too?
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!
In! If I win, you have to meet me for a beer, Nick!
I tried to resist, but I am weak. I'm in!
