From the time I secured the hunt w/Allan @ Bolen/Lewis Outfitters and the time I left Mike (Spikes)house my goat hunt expectations were meet. I have rated the food a very good because after a hard day on the mountain freeze dried food is very good, but the food is not about the hunt for me. Brad (my guide) and I only spent a half a day on the mountain and saw five differant billies. The first goats that Brad and I saw were two billies and one of the billies was a large dirty billy but we never made it up to see how large he was due to finding and me harvesting another billy. The goat that I harvested was a respectable billy for the area(Brad and I measured the horns @ 48 0/8"?) but there are larger if you have the weather on your side. After harvesting the billy Brad and I quartered and boned the meat and packed the hide, the next day Brad finished caping, removing the horns, and turning the nose/ears. My taxidermist was very pleased with the work Brad did caping the billy. If anyone is intersted in hunting goat I would not hesitate booking a goat hunt w/Bolen and Lewis.
None to date. If you are the outfitter please email us.
The first day of the hunt it was raining and the fog came in and out thru the day but that afternoon everything burned off. After harvesting my billy Brad and I had about a two and half hour hike back but what a beautiful hike back with a goat in my backpack and the sun setting on the mountains. The next day was sunny and warm but there was weather moving in the next day. Be prepared to be wet and make sure the gear you take is waterproof.
