ARIZONA MOUNTAIN LION or COUGAR 

Guides and Outfitters

Mountain Lion on the Kaibab in Arizona

Nothing gets the blood pumping more than coming up on hounds that have bayed or treed a mountain lion!  Our lion guide offers 6-day cougar hunts behind well-trained dogs in the rugged mountains of Arizona.  The guide is recognized as one of the top houndsmen for dry ground cougar hunting.  Opportunity is normally high on these hunts if you are in good shape.  Hunting is done in both Southern Arizona (dry) and Northern Arizona (snow possible).

Please note: Our hunts can be physically demanding at times because hunting is done in mountainous terrain.  Hunters are encouraged to condition themselves before arrival in order to increase their odds.  

Seasons: The best times to hunt are during the cooler months of November through March. 

Licenses/Tags: Arizona lion tags are over-the-counter or can be purchased by mail before you arrive. There is NO DRAWTag fee for non-residents: $225.00 and hunting license for non-residents is $151.25 ($376.25 Total).

Weapon Types can be archery, muzzleloader, centerfire rifle or centerfire handguns.  Shots are typically within 100 yards, so weapon choice is not as critical as other big game hunts.  The .223 bolt action to .30-30 lever action will work fine.   Ideal Handgun calibers are .41, .44 or similar.
