Lion (cougar) hunting is the most exciting hunt we offer. Just take a look at our photo gallery at some of the lions we have taken the last several years. If being 10 feet away from a snarling tom hissing at you doesn't make your heart pound, nothing will.
Our 5 day guided lion hunts take place in Northern Nevada. The last 3 years we have been 100% success for mountain lions. Our hunts are based out of Elko, Nevada but we are licensed statewide for lions and will hunt wherever conditions are best. Because these hunts typically take place in the snow and in mountainous terrain, you can make the most of your hunt by showing up in good physical condition. The best time to hunt lions is right after a storm when you have fresh snow. Because of this the best time to go is December through February, or be on call and come when the conditions are perfect.
Your license and tag can be purchased over the counter and you can take two lions per year in Nevada. Your hunt includes all transportation, meals and lodging until you harvest your lion or the hunt is over, whichever occurs first. We will meet you in Elko or pick you up at the airport and deliver you back to Elko after your hunt. You will be staying in motels or cabins and have dinner in a restaurant or cooked for you by our guides.
These hunts take place between November and April. Prices do not include state hunting license, tag fees or guide gratuities.
