Mountain Goat Hunting

To hunt mountain goats in Idaho, you need to apply a controlled hunt tag.

High in the lofty peaks of Idaho’s mountains resides one of the state’s most unnoticed big game trophy species, the Rocky Mountain Goat.  It takes a fit hunter to scramble after these elusive animals that can thrive at elevations of 8,000 -10,000 feet.

Mountain goats can be found in North Idaho, the White Cloud Mountains of central Idaho and the far southeast corner of the state. Recently two new tags were added to Unit 10, which overlaps the Selway Bitterroot Wilderness.

To hunt mountain goats in Idaho you need to:

  • buy an Idaho hunting license
  • apply for a controlled hunt between April 1-30

Your refund or tag will be mailed to you by June 10, however it is your responsibility to verify if you were successful in the drawing.
