5 Day Bear Hunt United States
I have guided hunts for the last 20 years. The hunts take place on Philmont Scout Ranch, a very well know ranch located in the Sangre de Cristo mountains in north eastern New Mexico. We guide bear and mountain lion hunts with hounds. Travel is on a side by side or horseback for those who want the horseback experience. I have over half a million acres of private land that I hunt. I also hunt a few other ranches that are not Philmont but are ranches on private land located in New Mexico. All the hunts are a five day hunt. Bear hunts are $4,ooo . This price does not include meals and lodging. We have meals and lodging available for and additional $1,000 per hunt. A non refundable 40 % deposit is required upon booking. The remaining balance is due 30 days prior to arrival for the hunt. The hunt can be rescheduled the same year if an opening is available. If the hunt is booked the following year there is a 10% administrative fee.

Nevada 7 Day Mountain Lion Hunt United States
The day typically starts by waking up at 4:00 am and we are leaving camp or town by 5:00 am, each client has his or her own guide with a pack of 10-12 seasoned hounds fitted with gps tracking collars, horses/mules,side-by-side 4x4 truck equipped with 2 way UHF radios for comunications etc.. The guide will begin looking for lion tracks that have crossed two track jeep trails, ranching and mining roads or horse and game trails that cross cut the large mountain ranges that the large predators call home . Once the guide or the hounds find the track , the guide will determine age of track and size and sex of the animal and will decide if it a animal we should pursue or not. We persue these predators by putting our hounds on the track. Most weeks there are two hunters in camp for the week, possibly three hunters. TEAM WORK After the first animal is harvested all efforts of the the guides with their hounds horses and equipment will be focused on getting the second hunter an animal. This becomes a team effort and has allowed us to harvest large numbers of exceptional lions over the decades of hunting we have under our belts. Whether it be snow or dry ground conditions, we are consistent in harvesting large numbers of trophy toms, even in the most difficult conditions. We credit this to thousands of hours afield in pursuit of these animals, exceptionally driven and talented dogs that have been selectively bred for one purpose; to surpass and surmount even the most difficult scenting conditions and terrain with ease, and the years of experience the pursuit of these incredibly tough animals have given us as guides to be able to handle any situation that may arise. Our snow hunts typically run from November 15- March 31st and our dry ground hunts can be conducted year round. Short notice hunts and last minute hunts are also welcome. Feel free to contact me at any time for openings.
