New Mexico Guided Mountain Lion Hunting

The hounds are what make your hunt a success and also the guides’ knowledge of the mountain lion and the country they live in. I run a very high success rate on large tom lions every year. I book a limited number of mountain lion hunters per year to keep the quality and high success of my mountain lion hunts. All mountain lion hunts are 2 guides 1 hunter guide service. Myself and my son Drew guide the majority of the mountain lion hunts ourselves with my own pack of hounds that are second to none in the industry. On occasion I will hire only the best houndsmen / guides possible in the area to assist on these hunts.

Our mountain lion hunts take place throughout New Mexico on both public lands and large private ranches from November through January. Elevations range from 6,000 feet to 10,000 feet. We prefer to book these hunts on an on-call basis as this will ensure good conditions during the hunt. If a date must be set, it should be either in December or January. Conditions are usually good during these two winter months.  We average an 90% - 100% success rate on our lion hunts every year.

Mountain Lion Hunting Methods and Success

Covering many miles of proven ground on either 4 x 4 trucks, ATVs, snowmobiles, on foot or horseback. We call this method cutting tracks. This hunt isn’t for everyone. It’s physically demanding on the guides, the dogs, the hunters and the equipment. Mountain lion inhabit some of New Mexico’s roughest country so physical preparation is a must. Bring your bow, rifle or pistol for your mountain lion hunt or don't bring anything, we have you covered with the perfect firearm for the job, Winchester Lever Action 30/30.  Our success averages 90% to 100% annually.
