Kodiak’s bounty of white, wooly beasts

Alaska Mountain Goat Hunting

While there are plenty of Sitka black-tailed deer on Kodiak, hunters may also see mountain goats, with their beautiful, bright, white coats, scattered about or in groups among a rocky ledge.

Mountain goats are not native to Kodiak and were first introduced in 1952. Their population has since swelled to bountiful proportions.

Goat hunting population and statistics

Regulations are adjusted based on population, and mountain goat numbers are high enough that there is considerable opportunity for hunters.

The mountain goats on Kodiak usually weigh in at around 120 to 170 pounds, but there are reports of billies weighing up to 245 pounds. They hang out on rocky ledges, grassy fields, and just about any terrain of the island.
