Top Choice for Alaskan Mountain Goats!



Since 1999 I have been sending hunters to my outfitting partner in Southeast Alaska. I can’t think of a client who has not taken a mountain goat!  

Mountain goat hunts are considered by many to be the most challenging physical hunts in Alaska. Mountain goats can navigate sheer rock faces, places few humans dare venture to.

Our outfitting partner for this hunt is a master guide who lives in the same region you will be hunting. He operates primarily on a Special Use Permit from the Chugach National Forest, which gives them access to approximately 2.5 million acres of true Alaskan Wilderness. They will custom-tailer a hunt for you. They are also one of the rare outfitters to welcome bowhunters for mountain goat hunts!

This a great value hunt.  You must draw the tag, if you do you are going on one the best brown bear hunts in Alaska.

My first job in Alaska was as a packer for legendary outfitter Dennis Harms! I will always remember my first experience on Kodiak. The hunter took a magnificent bear and I knew then I was hooked on Alaska Brown Bears.

I still sell many brown bear hunts annually. A share of those occur on Kodiak Island, home to some of the world’s biggest brown bears. If you are willing to wait one to three years to draw a tag, you can save a small fortune on a hunt.

Most of these hunts consist of a big tent base camp (sometimes a cabin is available); the outfitter often refers to it as the hotel. Here we eat real food like sloppy joe’s, pizza, stroganoff, tacos, spaghetti, jimmy dean, eggs and snacks. Often, especially on spring hunts, there is a need to spike out from base camp. In this case, you and your guide will carry what you need for up to seven days on your backs. Our outfitting partner provides the necessary equipment and freeze-dried food with snacks. Spring hunts, in general, require more mountaineering gear to be carried daily

10-Day Hunt – $20,500. add a Sitka Deer hunt for $3300 

Spring season is April 1st – May 15th Fall season October 25th-November 30th.

1×1 Professional guide service, camp accommodations, food, and trophy prep.

Flights to Kodiak, Alaska, hotels in Kodiak, license fees, shipping of trophies, gratuities.





The regulations have changed on Kodiak; nonresident hunters are now only allowed one deer per season. With that said, you better make it a good one! Hunting in a quality area with a quality guide makes all the difference in whether you will be successful or go home empty-handed.

Our team has two partners on Kodiak that we can send you where we are confident you have a high probability of taking a nice Sitka Blacktail.

We only offer guided hunts.

Prices vary from $5000.00 for a 2×1 guided hunt ($5500 1×1) to $8500.00 for a 1×1 fully guided package that includes the charter flights. This hunt has had 100% success for our clients in the past.

Client Testimonials

“Dream Come True”

I have arranged other hunts around the world with Jim over the last decade.  I came to him when I decided it was now or never to hunt Dall sheep. He teamed me up with a great outfitter and I took a beautiful Dall sheep.  Next up a Guatemalan fishing trip!

“Thanks Jim!”

“Kodiak island was a trip of a lifetime and one that I will never forget. It would not have been possible without the expertise and knowledge that Jim Riley has in the hunting industry. Not only was I able to get a trophy Sitka Blacktail but I saw a part of the country I would’ve never been able to experience without the trip. Thank you for making this possible Jim!”

“Three Great Hunts”

“I just got back from my third successful Alaskan hunt using Jim Riley’s consulting services. His extensive knowledge of the Alaska wilderness is the reason I chose to book with him.  I can promise all the details will be covered.”
