Mountain Lion Hunting

Fresh tracks in the snow, the sound of baying hounds, and your heart pounding out of your chest with excitement.  That’s the scenario you can expect while mountain lion hunting with Linehan Outfitting Company. Our lion hunts average 100% success rate. Join us for this epic adventure in Northwest Montana!

  • Season(s): December 1-April 14

Northwest Montana and specifically the Kootenai National Forest has some of the best mountain lion hunting in the Rocky Mountains!  Linehan Outfitting Company’s crew of houndsmen and guides are some of the most experienced in the west. While there are no guarantees in hunting wild, free range animals, our cougar hunts are pretty secure and essentially average 100% success.

We have close to 500 square miles of prime mountain lion habitat in our hunting area covering most of this corner of the state.  Hunts are via 4 wheel drive trucks with return to lodge each evening.

Special permits are needed.  We are happy to help with the application process.
