I too drew area 4 mountain goat; so as awesome as it is to have a goat tag, realistically it will probably be a miracle to see one in this area! Last year they only had a 27% harvest success in that area and after the all the culling they did, it will be far lower % this year! I’ve hunted elk and deer in this area a few times in the past. The area is loaded with bears, both grizzly and black plus lots of wolves so that should add to the fun! Not sure where to start looking for goats but my family owns a ranch just outside of Victor ID, so I’ll probably start looking in the areas around their place where I’ve hunted before!I am still in disbelief, but I checked the results today, and successful!!!
Area 4, the west side of the Grand Teton mountain range. I am a resident,, so the guide requirement in wilderness area is not a concern. I know this area is slightly different than the others, and I am going to spend the next 3 months scouting it out. I plan on contacting the local biologist and game warden for any tips, but has anyone here hunted the area or know someone that has? Or anyone that has hiked the mountains? I know grizzlies will be a concern, but I have never hunted goats, nor that area.
So, anybody have any insight?
