In November of 2016 I had the opportunity to pursue something that has always been on my bucket list, A mountain goat hunt in the East Kootney mountains of British Columbia with Sawtooth Outfitters & Ryan Berard. The trip definitely exceeded all my expectations from start to finish from the logistics to the adventure & especially the quality of animals we saw and were ultimately able to harvest. First off I’ve filmed hunts around the world & Ryan is as hardworking & fun as anyone I’ve ever hunted with. British Columbia's mountains & lakes are in my opinion the prettiest in the world & Ryan’s concession has everything you could possibly dream up. We saw 10-25 goats every single day of my week long hunt & 3-5 mature shooter Billys in each of the different groups. Ryan offers early & late season hunts but in my opinion the winter capes offer something that takes this trophy to a whole new level! It’s a physical hunt, Be prepared for some long slow & steady hikes to get to where these goats live because they are no lower on the mountain in the winter. If you are physically & mentally prepared im 100% confident in Ryan putting a fantastic animal in your scope. On the winter hunt plan for snow, wind & fog, We had a 2 out of the 5 stalks get messed up because of fog but that’s just one of the things you have to account for on the winter hunt. We stayed in a fantastic cabin Ryan & his family built in the area, Hot meals every morning & night and a warm bed to sleep in. The mornings are spent driving the canyons classing for a billy to make a stalk on & the afternoons are spent making a play on a goat. I ended my week taking an absolutely incredible goat that Ryan put me on at 150 yards. If your tired of waiting a lifetime to hopefully draw a tag in the states this is a destination that I couldn't recommend more. The biggest issue you’ll be faced with after the hunt is figuring out how soon you can get back for the next!
