As beautiful and majestic a trophy that mountain lions are, it is the guided mountain lion hunting experience in itself that is the greatest trophy that any big game hunter will bring back from going on one of our guided trophy mountain lion hunts in Arizona.

Watching an experienced and highly trained pack of dry ground lion hounds working in unison as a team while working a difficult mountain lion track on bone dry dirt with body and tail shaking enthusiasm is truly an inspirational sight to see.

Rarely do you ever see something that is doing exactly what it was born and bred to do with such dedication and endless determination as you get to see while watching our highly experienced pack of dry ground lion hounds work the track of a trophy tom lion.

Getting up early on a cold winter morning, loading all of the very excited lion hounds into the dog box in the back of the truck, then following the pack of hounds as they are trailing and hunting mountain lions through some of the most rugged and beautiful canyons in the entire Western United States will burn images into your minds eye that will never be forgotten for as long as you live.

One of our all time favorite trophy big game hunts that we guide and outfit here at Yavapai Outfitters LLC is our Arizona dry ground mountain lion hunts. Tags and licenses for our trophy Arizona mountain lion hunts are purchased over the counter and do not need to be drawn.

We hunt mountain lions in whichever method we think will be the most successful for your particular Arizona mountain lion hunt and we are not limited to any single style or technique of mountain lion hunting. No matter what the current conditions are on your Arizona mountain lion hunt with us we will be ready to trail and tree your trophy tom. We hunt mountain lions all year round in Arizona and can adapt to whatever conditions we will encounter during your trophy mountain lion hunt. Our guided Arizona Mountain lion hunts can be conducted in several different methods including hunting them in the fresh fallen snow with snowmobiles, trucks, atv’s, and various other different ways but our all time favorite mountain lion hunting method is by following the pack of lion hounds on dry ground conditions. Whether we are going to be dry ground lion hunting on horseback or on foot, our all time favorite method of hunting these magnificent and elusive western predators is on dry ground conditions with our highly experienced pack of Arizona bred dry ground lion hounds. Our Arizona mountain lion guides that we employ on our Arizona mountain lion hunts are some of the very best lion hunters in the business and will do everything humanly possible to tree your trophy tom and give you an extremely enjoyable first class hunting experience from start to finish. These Arizona mountain lion guides that are part of our team of trophy big game hunting professionals have many years of experience trailing and treeing trophy mountain lions under the very toughest Arizona dry ground conditions. Most of our professional Arizona mountain lion guides also breed, raise, and train their very own strain of dry ground lion hounds that have been carefully selected and bred over many generations to be able to consistently catch lions in the tough dry dirt conditions that we commonly hunt in Arizona.

The typical day on our guided Arizona mountain lion hunts will begin by rising very early in the morning and loading up the hounds, horses, atv’s, side by sides, or all of the above depending on the particular piece of Arizona country that we have located a trophy tom mountain lion in. Some of the Arizona hunting country where we conduct our Arizona mountain lion hunts has excellent road systems that we will utilize to cover vast amounts of country with trucks, atv’s, or side by sides in search of the fresh tracks of a trophy tom mountain lion. If we are going to be lion hunting in a large expanse of rough and roadless country we will then free cast the pack of lion hounds while following them on our surefooted horses or mules as the pack searches for the fresh track of a trophy tom mountain lion.

Once a large tom mountain lion track is located either by us or by our free cast pack of dry ground lion hounds, the excitement really begins.

If the lion track is fresh enough our Arizona bred dry ground mountain lion hounds will start bawling and whipping their tails furiously as they gather information and gauge the freshness of that particular mountain lion track.

Once the hounds begin trailing a catchable mountain lion track care must be quickly taken by our Arizona mountain lion guides to ensure that the pack of lion hounds begins following the track in the correct direction that the mountain lion is traveling. A lion hound cannot tell which direction a mountain lion is traveling just from the scent alone, especially in dry ground conditions where lion tracks can be extremely difficult, if not impossible to see, and it is up to your highly experienced professional Arizona mountain lion guides to determine that the pack of lion hounds is trailing the mountain lion in the right direction.

Once we make sure that our pack of dry ground lionds hounds is following the correct path of the fresh mountain lion track, hang on and get ready for a true western big game hunting adventure.

The chase might be very short or it might take all day long with no lion being caught but rest assured that every minute spent watching the pack of Arizona lion hounds furiously work the fresh track will be filled with excitement and anticipation.

Once the hard working pack of hounds has jumped the cat you never know exactly where that particular mountain lion will decide to tree or bay up once our pack of dry ground hounds have finally caught up to that lion.

The mountain lion might choose to climb up into a tree, climb up on top of a giant boulder, hide in a deep cave, fight the dogs on the ground, or go all the way out onto the face of a dangerously steep cliff.

Once the mountain lion has finally decided to tree or bay up things can get a little “western” once you arrive at the caught lion.

Shots can be anywhere from 200 yards to literally point blank on a bayed lion so mountain lion hunters need to be ready to possibly do some quick shooting in a very adrenaline filled situation. There are no more exciting big game hunts available in the world for a hunter to experience than our guided mountain lion hunts in Arizona.
