Colorado Mountain Lion Hunts

Our Colorado mountain lion hunt season runs from mid November through the month of March. There is not a more scenic time of year to see the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.

Our mornings begin with miles of roads to be run in four-wheel drives, ATV’s, and snow machines in search of lions. We also use hounds to help find the moutain lions. These hounds have caught lions in everything from waist deep snow to dry ground. However, the majority of the hunt is spent driving roads in search of tracks.

Once the dogs are turned loose there is not a more adrenaline-pumping hunt in the world. These hunts are physically demanding once the dogs are loose, we are on foot walking every step that the lion has made.

A Typical Mountain Lion Hunt

Our lion hunts are 5 days they include supper each evening, lodging and all transportation during the hunt. These hunts can be set by a date or you can be on call. We ask on call hunters will need to be here on short notice with the weather changes. If you are not dedicated to your lion hunt we suggest you don’t do it, as these are not a casual hunt. This is a fair chase hunt and sometimes with heavy competition lions can be hard to find. However, do not be discouraged by not so perfect conditions and rough lion country.

Our Colorado mountain lion hunts are running right at 85% success on these hunts. A 5 day mountain lion hunt is $6200.00 You buy a tag and get to Salida, and we will do our best to get you on the cat.

This is an exciting hunt for any hunter.  A hunter must be in good shape, and be able to keep up with our dogs. Most hunts are taking place when we have snow, and if you have the ability to go on short notice, that is always helpful.  There are a lot of cats where we hunt, but once the quota is met by the DOW, then the hunt season is over.  Let us know if you have interest in a Colorado mountain lion hunt, and we will work hard to get you in this year!
