Mt. Lions are nothing but a furry 200 pound bag of muscle, teeth, and claws but they are considered one of the Top Predators on the planet! Some of these cats can eat the equivalent of a deer a week!  Hunting Mountain Lion is like nothing else - and it takes a certain kind of hunter to appreciate what goes into a lion hunt.  Once you’ve tried it.. you’ll understand! 

 

  Hunting these illusive cats takes time, though it can come together faster than you think.  The main ingredient in Mt. Lion hunting is the dogs, the next is the track.  Once we have a track, and narrow down the area where the cat is, we mix in the dogs with the track, and when it comes out of the oven, what we hope for is an over-grown wild cat in a tree!  Now, it doesn’t always happen real fast, or that way at all, so that’s why we offer a two part hunt.  After a snow storm is the best time to find a track.  The first half of the hunt is three days after a snow, and the second half is another three days after another snow later in the season.  You can also choose to hunt all six days at once, any time during the season. 

 

The Mt. Lion Season starts in late November, and goes thru the end of March (of the next year). This is a Guided only hunt and some Physical Requirements apply.
