About the Outfitter:
Our passion for what we do is as large as the Rocky Mountains we do it in! We hunt some of the most precious land in Colorado with elk, deer and mountain lions. These special units are cherished by many but hunted by few due to the restricted number of licenses allotted to hunt this area. This makes another blaze orange vest at 2 miles away a welcome sight.
Hunt openings are limited as we wish to stay small to keep the highest level of quality control. All our hunts are guided and fully given with a cook to supply delicious hot meals before and after each day of hunting.
We invite you to come and put our skills to the test making your dreams come true. Whether your dream is harvesting a monster mule deer, majestic Rocky Mountain elk or perhaps following a pack of trained mountain lion hounds in pursuit of a giant Tom; we have the hunt for you!
All our hunts include a cook to provide hot meals before and after each day of hunting. Join us as we go workday and night to make your next hunt the hunt of a lifetime!!
Guided Mountain Lion / Cougar Hunts
Join us as we take you roaming Western Colorado in pursuit of the giant toms this country has to offer. With a lifetime dedicated to training dogs for catching cougar. We have what it takes to make your hunt a success. We breed and train lion hounds that are second to none, priding ourselves with the ability to catch anytime, anyplace. We offer two several types of cougar hunting experiences. Winter hunts conducted from mid-November thru the end of February. This is a fast paced hunt with lots of miles driving roads in search of a tom cougar crossing. Due to the snowy conditions this time of year, the hounds typically move tracks very quickly. While our travel is slowed by the snow, we seldom get to see any of the hound work it took to catch your cougar. Spring hunts during March and April are conducted off horses and mules. We ride deep into lion country in search of toms during the peak of their breeding season. With the added agility of the horses, we can keep up better and experience the magnificent show put on by the hounds. No other time of year can you get this type of experience.
Our Snowy winter months leave us with perfect conditions for easily harvesting lions resulting in near 100% success rate of tom cougars. This hunt is conducted with trucks, snowmobiles, and other off highway vehicles. We start cutting roads for tracks hours before day light. Once a track is found we wait until daylight. Hounds are then released. We track the hounds with GPS technology as they bring your cougar to bay. We then determine the closet approach for us to advance you into your trophy. There is truly no bigger rush then being face to face with a giant tom.
Spring lion is our favorite hunt. It is conducted from horses and mules. No other time of the year can you experience this type of excitement. We ride deep into cougar country following scrape lines left behind by giant toms as they roam around in search of the promising females that this time of year has to offer. A scrape is a way lion use to communicate to one another about each other’s territory boundaries and as a calling card to bring breeding pairs closer together. Not an activity that happens as regularly during the winter months. Having keen knowledge of these special behaviors and the areas that it takes places gives us huge advantages on finding and harvesting these magnificent creatures this time of year. All our spring hunting is fully filmed so you will be able to relive your awesome experience for years to come.
These precious areas are on the area known as the Uncompahgre and the units GMU061, GMU062, GMU065, and GMU070.
