Arizona Mountain Lion Hunts (Guaranteed Lion Option)

Our world-renowned Arizona mountain lion hunts are fast-paced adventures behind the best lion dogs in the West! Watching a knowledgeable mountain lion guide work his hounds for you in the Arizona backcountry is an unforgettable experience.
Hunting mountain lions off of mules or horses (if you’re comfortable) is a great way to increase the likelihood of your success. Our guided lion hunts are conducted on large tracts of public or private land, well off the grid, in some of Arizona’s most beautiful country totaling over 13 million acres. Our extensive list of contacts will alert us to lions on occasion too. Ranchers call upon us when a calf has been predated upon, and game wardens will put us on an elk or deer kill from time to time as well. Ultimately, we will hunt wherever and whenever provides you with the best chance of harvesting a big tom during your unforgettable Arizona mountain lion hunt.
An Arizona mountain lion hunt is a popular over the counter (OTC) option. Upon arrival to Arizona, you’re guide will tell you where to purchase your hunting license and Arizona lion tag before your hunt at one of many hunting license retailers throughout the state. Our lion season is approximately 9 months long and since tags are available over the counter, it’s easier than ever to join us in lion country!
The mountain lion is one of the most challenging cats to hunt anywhere on earth. With cunning instincts, an intense will to live, and binocular vision, Arizona’s lion population of nearly 3,000 cats is having a negative impact on many wildlife species in our state, especially mule deer and Coues deer.

We also have a guaranteed lion harvest program. We have two ten-day lion hunts available. The more expensive of the two is the guaranteed hunt option. On guaranteed hunt option states that “if we do not tree a lion during your 10-day hunt you can come back for a 5-day hunt at half price”. As you might presume, this guarantee has some restrictions and these restrictions will be highlighted in your contract for your signature. Please call our outfitter to discuss this popular option.

During certain times of year, mountain lion/black bear combo hunts are available. Contact us for more information regarding this popular option or visit the bear page to find out what it’s like hunting bears with us.
