All Mountain Lion Hunts Start around November 15th (due to the elk hunting season), and run through the end of December. This outfitter has an 18 cat quota on the lands we hunt, therefore, limited spots are available! Outfitter can take up to two hunters at a time at the most, with each hunt guided on a 1:1 basis and with another houndsman, we work as a team to make it happen. All hounds are owned and operated by the outfitter Our Mountain Lion Hunters have enjoyed a whopping 99% Success Rate over the last 7 years! Unlike most of our hunts, during mountain lion season, hunters are provided with a hotel room in town instead of staying at the lodge and all meals are up to the hunter. Lion Hunters are picked up each morning from their hotel room and driven out to the hunting grounds where we hunt off of ATV’s or by 4 wheel drive truck. Deposits for Mountain Lion Hunts are $1000 Per Hunter and are Non-Refundable.
