Mountain Lion Hunts

Come hunt the majestic and powerful mountain lion.

With seasons starting in early December and running until mid-April the hunting is not for the faint of heart. We guide hunts during this time of the year for the advantage of snow cover to “cut tracks” and because we can use our well-trained hound dogs to aid in tracking the elusive cat.

Because Mountain Lion hunting requires that we walk in on foot, being in good physical shape makes for a more enjoyable and successful hunt.

Hunting Dates

All mountain lion hunts are booked as 5 hunting days and we are flexible in scheduling our start dates for hunts within the legal hunting dates of December 1 through mid-April.

Montana hunting licenses are required to be obtained by hunters and the application deadline is mid-August. Specifics will be updated when available from Montana FWP:


$5250/per hunter for our 1-to-1 guided hunting.

1/2 of total due is required to reserve your hunt. Second, 1/2 payment is due 30 prior to your hunt. Invoices will be emailed upon reservation.


Backcountry Montana Adventures guides its hunts in the Lima Peaks, Tendoy and Medicine Lodge areas of Southwest Montana.

Hunters are responsible for paying and applying for their own hunting licenses. You should apply before the mid-August application deadline.

Please contact or us for more information.

Mountain lion hunts are done in the middle of Montana winters. Hunters should expect weather from 30 to -20 degrees and snowy conditions.

We will work with hunting parties to recommend accommodations in Dillon, Dell or Lima, Montana. Lunches will be provided during our hunts.

We provide round trip shuttles with different associated costs from the following airports:

  • Butte, Montana—$300
  • Bozeman, Montaa—$500
  • Idaho Falls, Idaho—$500

If you choose to rent a car or drive, we will provide you with directions.

Depending on availability we can accommodate fishing, bird hunts or wolf hunt days prior or after your mountain lion hunt.
