All Lion hunts will based out of town and you can expect to return to your cabin or motel every night. There is almost always snow during our Full priced hunts allowing us the most common method of traveling roads until we find a track that looks desirable to pursue with our hounds.

There are many benefits to choosing your hunt outside of the winter months! One of the struggles during the winter is access. Deep snow and road closures due to elk wintering areas can limit our hunting late in the year. Driving roads day after day can become monotonous while tracking cougars in the snow. Be it spring or fall, you will experience a more diverse trip along with the weather being more enjoyable. We use a variety of hunting methods from; horse/mule back to dragging roads, making tracking easier in the dirt. If the weather does decide to turn on us, we will be utilizing pickups/UTVs.

Hunting Mountain Lions with Hounds
If you are looking to hunt mountain lions with a pack of hound dogs then hunting with Shell Valley Outfitters is for you! Growing up hunting with dogs, we take pride in the quality of our hound dogs. For the past thirteen years, we knew we needed to perfect the breeding of our hound dogs to be equipped to hunt in all conditions since we do offer mountain lion hunts all year round.
A typical mountain lion hunt will begin either on horseback, UTV or in a truck riding along roadways and trails looking for fresh lion tracks. Once finding tracks we will release one dozen of our best hound dogs to get on the scent and track down the lion. We have GPS collars on our dogs so we can track their locations although it is very clear to hear the howling and sound of the hounds crashing through the brush after the lion. After the dogs have the lion treed or cornered it is then up to us the hunters to catch up and take over from there. Hunting mountain lions truly is a hunting thrill of a lifetime!
