“Great dogs, great country and a trophy cat.  Thanks to all at Winterhawk Outfitters for a memorable hunt.”

Colorado Mountain Lion Hunting

There never has been a better time to hunt for trophy class mountain lions. Colorado has an abundance of lions and they prey heavily on mule deer. Biologists estimate that an adult cat kills one deer a week. While none of Winterhawk's hunts are guaranteed, our success rates for quality Toms has been excellent, in most years running nearly 100%.

Our lion hunts are conducted from our ranch near Collbran, Colorado. Occasionally we use a travel trailer as hunt headquarters as it allows us the mobility necessary to quickly move to different country when weather conditions change.

We have excellent hounds and never tire of listening to them strike a trail and work a fresh track. Our hunts are strictly fair chase. Snow machines are our primary transportation and we use mules when conditions dictate, but when the dogs push the lion into rough country, the hunter should be prepared for some tough hiking.

Success rates are highest when hunters can be on call to take advantage of weather conditions, but if this isn't possible, hunts may be scheduled for specific dates.

Our lion hunts are full service and are guided one-on-one. We can accommodate two hunters on a trip and will do so upon request. Whether you hunt your Tom with bow, muzzleloader, handgun or rifle, mountain lion hunting is exciting and the memories will last a lifetime.

Mountain Lion Licenses can be purchased over the counter when you arrive to hunt. The cost of a Mountain Licenses is $351.00. You must also take a Lion Hunting Test on the Division of Wildlife website before you can purchase a Lion Licenses. You can do the test and buy your licenses both online before you arrive to hunt. Go to Colorado Parks and Wildlife website.
