Arizona - Mountain Lion
This outfitter is a full time rancher and hunter, and a personal friend of Aaron Neilson - with years of experience located in central Arizona, 1 1/2 hours west of Prescott. He currently controls over 70,000 acres of private and state leases in some of the greatest mountain lion habitat Arizona has to offer.
The country he hunts varies from the saguaros in the deserts to the piñons in the higher elevations. The terrain is extremely rugged and very rocky. He uses very gentle, sure footed horses which are used in day to day ranching operations for means of transportation. Hunting on horseback and staying with the dogs gives you a chance to experience the hunt and encounter miles of God’s most beautiful territory.
Dry ground mountain lion hunting is more of a challenge, but will give you more satisfaction than just the harvest. His dogs are well trained to dry ground conditions and are worked hard year round. Camp will be out of the ranch headquarters or wall tents with all the comforts of home. Success on this hunt is generally high - Aaron treed 3 cats on day 1, and took a beautiful lion in February 2015.

Colorado Mountain Lion
Snowy winter months leave us with the perfect conditions for easily harvesting cougars. We pride ourselves in a very high success rate on mature toms. This hunt is conducted with trucks,snowmobiles, and other off highway vehicles. We start our days very early driving roads looking for cougar tracks. Once we have a track located, we relase hounds and catch your cat.
Using GPS technology we track the hounds and precisely locate where they treed your cat. We then determine the easiest route to take you into your trophy. Loging is based out of our hunters cabin. You will have first class accomodations including a private bed, bacth and living room. Home cooked meals will be provided by Bre Robbins, before and after each day of hunting. A cooler full of lunch food and drinks will come with us every where we go. Due to the large size of our hunting area possibilities we may stay in a remote mountain cabin that has almost all the conveniences of home. Which includes nice beds, propane lite, and wood stove heat.
