Mountain lion hunts utilizing very well trained Walker hounds
Our season here in Montana starts on December 1st and we hunt right out of our lodge. We typically book 10 day hunts for lion because it takes just the right snow conditions to be successful. We utilize snowmobiles, horses, and vehicles to find fresh tracks. This can be a physically demanding hunt, although sometimes we’ll get lucky and tree a cat close to a road.
The success rate on our Mountain Lion hunts is very high.

Unparalleled wilderness elk hunting experience out of our base camp near the head of the Spotted Bear River.
It’s about a 5 hour ride to get to our base camp, and we often spike out to access the best elk habitat. This is some of the most remote, wild country in the lower 48. Our hunting territory sits along the continental divide and borders the Sun River Game Preserve. This country can produce some huge public land bulls. We are able to rifle hunt rutting elk beginning September 15th, which is one of the only areas where this opportunity exists.
This is a very demanding hunt which requires grit, determination, and strong horses and mules.

The South Fork of the Flathead has some of the biggest, mature mule deer in the west.
Because of the rough, unforgiving country, these bucks grow old and live in country that few hunters ever access. We rely on our big strong mountain horses to bust through the deep snow and gain elevation to access great mule deer habitat.
This is an exclusive hunt, and our guides are experts in locating and pursuing these rare trophies.
