In 2013, I hunted black bear and Sitka deer with Bud Rosenbruch of Southeast Alaskan Adventures and submitted reports on both of those trips to The Hunting Report. I also indicated in those reports that I planned to return to Alaska in the fall of 2014 to once again hunt with Mr. Rosenbruch, this time for mountain goat.

Originally, my mountain goat hunt was supposed to be a 1x1trip but I was contacted by another hunter (Norm) who wished to hunt goats with Bud and wondered if I would be willing to let him join me on the trip. I was a little apprehensive about taking a trip like this with someone I had never before met. After speaking to Norm several different times as well as discussing the situation with Bud, I felt comfortable with Norm joining us. Looking back on the trip now, I am glad I did because Norm was an enjoyable person to hunt with and very helpful during the trip.

We were fortunate to have excellent weather flying in to the hunting area and the scenery during the charter flight was nothing less than spectacular. We located three billies not long after landing. One was in a nearly inaccessible area but the other two were reachable.

The next morning, one of the billies was within five hundred yards of our camp and, after a fairly short stalk, I was able to take my goat at 7:30 a.m. It had beautiful hair and broomed off horns that were 9 inches. After taking a few photos, we noticed that the other billy was still in the area so Norm and Bud headed off after it. There was also a great looking black bear which we judged to be in the 7-7 1/2 foot range feeding in the area. I had considered buying a bear tag but assumed I wouldn't have much opportunity to get one. Being able to watch this bear nearly all day made me regret not spending the money on the tag.

The billy Bud and Norm originally were after made it into some steeper country and disappeared before they could get within range of it. However, they were able to locate another billy within the same general area and Norm had his goat down by noon. It, too, had beautiful hair with horns almost identical in size to my billy.

A torrential downpour set in about the time we reached camp with the two goats and didn't let up for several days. We were confined to our backpacking tent until a small break in the weather allowed the charter plane to pick us up. Had it not been for that small break in the weather, we likely would have been forced to spend a week on the mountain before the weather cleared enough for another flight.

As I have indicated in my two previous reports on Bud Rosenbruch, the Rosenbruch name is well known within hunting circles for offering quality hunts for quality animals. I don't think many people realize, though, that Bud Rosenbruch has his own outfitting business separate from that of other family members and offers excellent deals on quality trips. Bud's trips are an opportunity for the "average" hunter, someone who may not be able to spend $10,000 or $20,000 just on the outfitter portion of a trip (let alone flights, licenses, etc.), to experience all that Southeast Alaska has to offer as well as very similar things to what is offered by those more expensive trips. I think a hunter would be hard pressed to find another quality mountain goat hunt in Canada or Alaska on which two hunters could take two nice goats within the first four or five hours of the first morning for similar prices to what Bud Rosenbruch offers .

Having hunted with Bud Rosenbruch three times now for three different species, I believe I have a pretty good feel for what type of person he is. During that time, Bud has grown to be someone I consider to be a good friend. But, I don't think it is unique how well I have been treated by Bud, and even his entire family. On every trip, they have truly treated me like family and have done everything possible to make my hunt and my time in Alaska as enjoyable as it could be. In all the guided hunts I have taken, I have also never had a person show as much concern for the proper care of my trophy as has Bud. I would, without reservation, recommend Bud Rosenbruch and Southeast Alaskan Adventures to anyone interested in hunting or fishing in Southeast Alaska .
