Mountain Goat Hunting Information
Obtaining a License

As with bighorn sheep, drawing a license requires more than a little bit of luck. Once a permit is drawn, hunter success is very high, 100 percent in most years. The Beartooth Mountains encompass some wilderness while the Palisades area is non-wilderness, allowing do-it-yourself hunts for the nonresident. There are no preference points for mountain goats since Wyoming law limits a hunter to one mountain goat license in a lifetime. Mountain goats must be checked and registered at a regional office or at the Cheyenne office within 15 days of harvest.

Registration of Mountain Goat

(a) Any person harvesting a mountain goat in Wyoming shall within fifteen (15) consecutive days following the harvest present the skull plate and horns for registration.
