About this hunt

This hunt is primarily conducted off horses and mules. We ride deep into cougar country following travel ways and scrape lines left behind by giant toms as they roam around in search of promising females. A scrape is a way cougars use to communicate to one another about each others territory and boundaries. Scrapes are also used as a calling card to bring breeding pairs closer together. Not an activitity that happens as regularly during winter months. Having keen knowledge of these special behaviors and the areas they take place, gives us huge advantages in locating and harvesting these magnificent creatures.It is hard to describe the pleasure one gets watching his hounds learn and progress. Nothing puts their skills to the test like free casting them off horse back in bare ground condition. They learn to work as a team by fanning out and individually searching for the smallest amount of cougar scent. Then they ban together, noses to the ground helping each other move the track forward as fast as they possibly can without making mistakes. Often times this happens in conditions where there is no visible sign for man to see. This leaves us nothing to rely on but the narutal instincts of their noses. No other time of the year can you experience this type of spectacular hound work. Please note that education course is obligatory for this hunt.

Extremely professional and hard working outfitter.

jT and his wife went above and beyond to ensure a high quality hunt. We hunted sun up to sun down every day. He knows the area, the animals and tactics it takes to get the job done. The quality of the food is unbelievable, you will not go hungry! If you’re looking for honest professional outfitter give them a call, great hunt thanks again JT.

That the was over.

Mountain Lion Hunt

I hunted with JT for mountain lion . I did an on call hunt, when fresh snow was on the ground. His dogs are great and can run mt. lions. Everything that JT told me about the hunt was right on. We hunted for 3 days, treeing 2 mt lions. I shot a huge lion on the 3rd morning. If you have ever thought about going on a mountain lion hunt give JT a call. He knows how to find mt. lions and has the dogs to tree them!
