looking for mtn lion hunt ideas...

just curious as to who has done this, where they have gone and about how much it cost? ive always wanted to do a cat hunt and recently mentioned it to a friend and he said the same! he actually has a contact in Idaho that isn't an outfitter but has lots of buddies that run cats for fun just like our coyote guys here. it sounded promising at first and I wasn't opposed to that idea but a little more serious digging has proved to be frustrating/disappointing and the "buddies" claims arnt holding up now that we've actually called him on it so it looks like we are in the market for am outfitter. we hoped to gather info at the sportsman show this yr but obviously that wont be happeing. any input would be great!

5 to 7 grand as a minimum. You can plan it to a certain time, or be on a "call list", if your schedule allows. When you are on call, an outfitter may call and say he has a nuisance tag to fill, you pack and go. The other way is like any other hunt, you go for a certain amount of days. Its really physical for the most part, tons of fun, I would say worth the money to do it once.

Stackbarrel just went on a similiar hunt. Not sure what it cost him but I saw his success pics on this site.

I tried sending you a pm but you are over the limit.

I just had a client from PA return from a Colorado lion hunt we offer. He killed a nice tom and had a great hunt. If you'd like, I can put you in contact with him. I can also email you some pics if you'd like. Let me know.

The outfitter i used to hunt elk with in Colorado was doing some and as Joe said its one of those deals your on call. Weather plays a big toll also. His hunt was around 3,500.00.

Re: looking for mtn lion hunt ideas...

Alberta is probably your best choice. Im 2 for 2 on toms there, while the hunts in the states are cheaper if you have to go twice its not. Do you just want to hunt lions or kill a monster? Thats the question, id never do a hunt in the states simply because of success rates.
