Re: mountain goat hunt unit 51 idaho

First, congrats! Second, I'm jealous. You may have been here but I always start here: Map Center | Huntplanner.

It use to be an o.k. tool, but now that they've overlayed the areas on google maps it's a better tool! I've never hunted that mountain range but I've hunted the west side of that valley, near Howe and up west of the Donkey Hills.

Are you local, know the area....? We may be able to help more with a little more information.

Best way to ensure success, I feel, is an outfitter.

Be prepared to hunt high and hard. And cush out some $.......

Don't know from where you are. Nevertheless get in shape, real good shape the air is pretty thin in that neck of the woods...

Don't know how long it took you to draw. Took me 15 years to draw a bighorn in Wy. I got an out fitter and don't regret it at all figured I would not draw another tag so spent the cash. Good Luck.

Re: mountain goat hunt unit 51 idaho

Boy....I don't know what else to tell you. I've only hunted in that area a few times and never for goats. I'd try to follow up on the outfitter's info as much as I could. Did you ask him of other outfitters in the area? If you are not excited about the drop camp, there are a number of campgrounds in the area and you could base camp there and explore different drainages every couple of days. See what you can learn form F&G numbers on where the tags were filled in the last couple of years and try to learn as much about those areas as you can. Sorry I'm not more help.
