This is a great hunt after the greatest of the west’s predators. Some say this is the ultimate predator of the west. He is cunning, smart and never seen during the day on a normal basis, you will just see tracks of where he passed. All that changes when the dog handler puts down the strike dog, he bays on a hot track and the chase is one. Some say it is like a coon hunt on steroids! You will hunt during the daylight hours and like any dog hunt the quality of the dogs is as priceless as a gun that shoots. The Mountain Lion or what some call the “Puma” is king of the west as the lion is king of Africa. Are you up for the challenge with a rifle, pistol, bow, or even muzzleloader? You will never see this quality of a hunt and guarantee at this low price, guaranteed. The outfitter is well known for his success and the unknown secret of how he always finds lions. You will be hunting with the A team and after the hunt you will know what that means!
