Washington Mountain Goat Hunting

Washington continues to manage their mountain goat population as conservative as possible with no hunts being allowed to occur on a unit until the population is greater than 100 goats. Even after a hunt is created, the target harvest is less than or equal to 4% of the total population over one year old. Only 15 draw permits will be available this year in the mountain goat draw category, but those lucky enough to draw a special permit should be able to find a nice goat to bring home. Washington realizes that many of their goat areas fall in popular hiking and recreational areas and strives to keep conflict to a minimum. Hiking and camping permits may be necessary for permit holders to obtain before heading off into the backcountry. Goat permit winners may only purchase their license after successfully completing the WDFW mountain goat gender identification training online or at a regional office.

The conflict reduction mountain goat hunts on the Olympic Peninsula surrounding the Olympic National Park were once again suspended and will not be available for 2022. There are expected to be very few, if any, goats available on the unit after this summer. During the 2021 conflict reduction hunts, 10 hunters went into the field and only 1 goat was killed. The Department and National Park Service are focused on eradication efforts to remove all non-native mountain goats from the area.
