New Mexico Mountain Lion Hunting – Expert Guided Hunts

The mountain lion presents a hunt that is equal parts unique as it is challenging. Mountain lions are an elusive, intelligent prey and we employ well-trained hounds to assist in their harvest. Hunts are conducted on foot or horseback, or from 4-wheel UTVs or snowmobiles, depending upon weather conditions. Fresh snow is always welcomed, but not necessary. We have great success dry ground hunting, taking most in the dirt.

The New Mexico season runs October through April. We try to only harvest the mature toms. These majestic creatures make a unique addition to any trophy room, and a mountain tom trophy is surely the sign of a skilled hunter.

We have over 30 years of experience helping our hunters succeed, and New Mexico Big Game Hunting Inc. has earned a reputation as one of the top producers of mountain lions in New Mexico. Our success rate exceeds 80 percent every year. All of our lion hunts are ten-day hunts, unless an ON-CALL hunt has been arranged. Lion hunts can be combined with bobcat, and Black Bear. Licenses are purchased over the counter.

Bobcat Hunts Also Available

Bobcat can also be hunted with hounds through the winter months. There is no limit on bobcats, and many hunters have the opportunity to TAKE MORE THAN ONE. This hunt, combined with mountain lion, makes for a quintessential New Mexico winter hunting experience.

Why Hunt Mountain Lions

The agility, intelligence, and speed of the mountain lion makes it a challenging but equally rewarding hunt. It takes a keen eye, perseverance, and sharp shooting to turn this powerful predator into your prey.
