Two spots just came open with our outfitter in Idaho on a great Mtn. Lion Hunt. Two hunters had to reschedule their hunts for 2020 and in doing so, they forfeited a portion of their deposit.
These hunts are short notice and need to take place in January or February, 2019. Dates are flexible in January and February. Excludes January 15-24, and must commence before February 17th. If you can be “On Call” for fresh snow you up the odds even more.
The outfitter himself is your professional guide and his exceptional hounds will work hard to tree a cat for you. This hunt can be physically demanding and start early in the morning. With that said, you are hunting from the comfort of a modern lodge and you will go out on a full stomach after a home cooked breakfast. Sack lunches will go along with as the hunts can last into the evening hours. This is not an easy hunt, but it's sure to be one you will not forget. It’s always 1×1 guided and they target only mature toms. This is a family run operation and you will be well taken care of from the moment you arrive. If you tag out on your cat you may have an opportunity to pursue a wolf as well. This outfitter has enjoyed nearly 100% success on his cougar hunts for over a decade now. On the years with less than 100% success, it is usually due to 1 or 2 hunters a year that book the hunt, and due to work schedules, last minute family commitments, etc., the hunters cannot finish the hunt and have to leave after only 2 or 3 days hunting. If you can stay and hunt the entire 7 days, you should be able to harvest. Cats here on average will go around 140 lbs. (empty stomach) and skulls will average 14 1/2" - 14 3/4" and up.
