Description

These lion hunts are a 1:1 experience between hunter and guide. This hunt includes a 6 day, 5 night, all-inclusive experience where the hunter will be chasing hounds through the mountains of Southwest Montana. These dogs are well-trained and seasoned lion hunters bred and raised to find big cats by following their tracks in the snow. Hound handling and lion tracking are two of the most intense sportsman experiences. Lion hunting in Montana is a unique opportunity to participate in this traditional hunt. Because not all cats are trophies and conservation is key to preserving our tradition, photos and memories are expected, but lions are not guaranteed. Once you've witnessed the joy of a hound on a lion track, you'll be aching to return year after year. Because of this, these hunts are limited and reservations are recommended early in the year. 6 hunting days. Hunter can choose to wait at the cabin while guides go and look for tracks or guides will scout and then pick up hunter as soon as tracks are found. This hunt includes lodging and meals. This outfit runs 4 hounds.
