Here is a very inexpensive no frills hunt that
produces some large bodied long-haired goats.

preference points involved and a couple buddies can put in together.

This outfitter had been 100% success on billies for
several years until 2010, when the hunts were hampered by some severe
weather. His 3 hunters took
only 1 billy and one hunter passed on a 300 yard plus shot on a 10
incher. Both unsuccessful
hunters rebooked the hunt.
Most hunters don’t want to bothered with a draw, so he typically only
gets one or two hunters per year and in 2009 the largest billy taken
went over 10 inches and into the Boone and Crockett record book. In 2008
his only hunter took an old long-haired billy of 9 ½ inches. In 2007 all
4 hunters tagged nice billies and the same goes for 2006 and 2005, with
most goats taken in the 9 to 9 ½-inch range. These backpack hunts tend
to be less physical than most. The highest climb is about 3,000 feet or
four hours for an average hunter, but normally the goats are lower at
1,500 to 2,500 feet elevation making them more accessible. This is still
a physical mountain goat hunt.
A 7-day October hunt guided 1x1 is $7,000 and you can
also add a sitka
blacktail buck for only $2,000. His hunters have taken several Boone and
Crockett bucks. Goat tags are on a draw with a December 6 deadline.
