Dream Hunt

Hop aboard the 100′ luxury yacht the Golden Eagle to experience an epic hunt for one of North America’s most iconic species—the mountain goat! Come back after a long day of hunting to enjoy a shower in your private stateroom while our 5-star chef prepares you a gourmet meal featuring fine Alaska seafood. No detail goes unnoticed as we work to find you the trophy of your dreams in comfort and style. The mountain goats will be hunted late in the season when the snow and the rut push them down into glacial fjords, providing one of the only places in the world where you can hunt these elusive animals by boat! Some hiking is required, but not as arduous as a normal goat hunt. Take advantage of harvesting this once-in-a-lifetime trophy in full winter pelage, making them a truly beautiful and unique addition to your trophy room.

In addition, hunters can chase the Sitka black-tailed Deer, another sought-after species found only in coastal Alaska. The largest vessel offering hunts in Alaska, Golden Eagle will meet the needs of the most discerning hunter and hosts a full crew inclusive of steward to cater to all of our guests. Master Guide Keegan McCarthy will host you; Keegan has been hunting this area for over 30 years and will provide you with expert knowledge and skill. Keegan has used this experience to cultivate one of the leading concessions for these trophies. Keegan is a dedicated champion to SCI, having been awarded the 2020 North American Hunter of the Year Award. Keegan continues to show his passion to support SCI, SCIF and the future of hunting.

You will be joined by a surprise special guest and hosted by SCI CEO Laird Hamberlin!
