A friend of mine went on a mountain lion hunt in Southern Colorado close to Trinidad. The hunt consisted of 6 days. He never seen a lion and the dogs never cut a track. The outfitter was recommended by Fred Eichler, the grand slam man with a traditional bow. No hunt is guaranteed, but some outfitters make claims, that there place is better than others. Do your homework and ask for references. I wish you the best hunt and I hope you score on your first mountain lion. It's a good thing my friend can go back next year free of charge. Good Luck!!!I was wondering if any body knows what to expect on a mountain lion hunt. I found a good outfitter here in utah that garaintees a cat in the tree. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
I'm sure your cousin has great success on guiding for mountain lions, but there is so many determining factors on success. Like weather, food availability, etc. I was fortunate enough to score on my bear last year, even though the bears went nocturnal through out the week due to the full moon phase. With minimal sightings the first 4 days of the hunt, the fifth day was cloudy and rainy. This was the perfect day for my hunt. I shot my bear 10 minutes before dark on the last day of the hunt. WHEW!! Thanks to GOD!!The reason i ask is my cousin has a lion hunting operation and I get a substantial discount. He charges $3000.00 for a guided hound hunt. if you ever want to talk to him about a hunt go to ( hightopoutfitters.com) he also does elk and bear hunts. The area he hunts though you have to draw for lion bear and elk. you should check them out. talk to you later and thanks for replying.
Hey Mike! I read an article in BOWHUNTER magazine the stated Mountain Lion meat is some of the best flavored wild game there is. Yeah! Just the thought of eating CAT meat makes me a little skeptical. But, heck I would give it a try.:wink:To me its not a meat animal so I wouldn't hunt them myself. I'm not saying anyones wrong, just not my thing.
