Idaho Mt Lion Hunts

Idaho is the best state for Mountain Lion hunting with 450 to 600 cats taken annually plus Idaho has the highest ratio of record book entries per square mile of any state. Bearpaw Outfitters have been outfitting and guiding mountain lion hunts for more than 40 years, they have caught hundreds of mountain lion "also known as cougar" including the former P&Y World Record and more recently the #1 P&Y Mt Lion taken during the last 3 year award period.

Lion Hunting

Southern Idaho has a denser lion population and is the best choice for a lion only hunt. Lions in Northern Idaho usually score higher and northern Idaho also has higher numbers of bobcat and wolves.

Bobcat Hunting

North Idaho has high numbers of bobcat and they are some of the most stunning & beautiful bobcats in North America. One bobcat is included with your hunt, additional bobcat hunts can be added.

Wolf Hunting

North Idaho is a top producer of wolves. They are extremely elusive and one of the world's most prized trophies. Wolves are included in your hunt, I recommend having two tags, only $31.75 per tag.

Choice of Cats

Bearpaw Outfitters will try to find you the largest cat possible. When tracks are found and when cats are treed, guides will estimate the size, it's your choice to take that cat or keep hunting.

Hunting Methods

The most successful method is to travel mountain roads with 4x4 truck, ATV, or snowmobile while watching for fresh cougar tracks. Bearpaw has the best modern equipment which increases your odds.

The Chase

When the tracks you like are found the dogs are released and the chase is on. Hounds can cover country fast, so when the cat is bayed or treed a guide will get you as close as possible before hiking in.

Areas & Terrain

The Northern Idaho area runs 3000' to 6000' elevation with more than 350 square miles of hunting territory. The Southern Idaho area runs 5000' to 8000' with more than 700 square miles of territory.

Seasons & Regs

Lion season is Nov 1 to Mar 31, bobcat season Dec 14 to Feb 16, wolf season Apr 1 to Mar 31. Licenses are available "ONLINE", or over the counter when you arrive. Proof of Hunter Ed required if born after Jan 1, 1975. See the hunting "REGULATIONS".

Trophy Quality

Mature toms weigh 130 to 160+ pounds and are 8 to 9 feet when skinned. Bearpaw has taken dozens of record size cougar. The largest scaled 205 pounds, measured 9 1/2 feet, scored 15 11/16, a P&Y World Record.


When conditions are good the odds of finding lion or bobcat tracks is usually close to 100%. Wolf and coyote can also be taken if seen. Local waters offer trout fishing and your hunt license includes 3 days fishing.

Guiding & Lodging

Hunts are guided 1x1. If you want two hunters per guide you can double your hunt days for the same price per hunter. Lodging and meals during the hunt are included in southern Idaho or in northern Idaho.

Driving Directions

Our northern Idaho location is only one hour from Couer d'Aene. In southern Idaho we are only one hour from Pocatello. Driving directions will be sent to you before you come to hunt.

Airport Info

For southern Idaho fly to Salt Lake City, for northern Idaho fly to Spokane WA. Get an economy rental car, it's only a 2 or 3 hour drive to Bearpaw and the roads are paved all the way.

Airline Tickets

Buy changeable airline tickets, if weather is bad you can change flight dates to a better time or you might change your hunt to our other area if conditions are better, or you may kill early and want to leave.


Arrive about 4pm the day before your hunt begins. Plan to hunt the duration of the hunt and plan to depart the morning after your hunt ends. Call Dale just before the hunt to confirm weather conditions.

Weather Conditions

Hunting is best when there's fresh snow on the ground or in the forecast during the hunt, we would rather postpone your hunt than have you come if weather conditions are going to be bad.

Trophy Care

Guides will skin your trophies and save any lion meat you may want, it's very good eating. After IDFG seals the hide Bearpaw can deliver trophies to experienced taxidermist or you can take them home.

Transporting Trophies

To take trophies home by plane, buy a 30 to 50 quart cooler, shipping tape, and black marker. Freeze overnight in cooler, tape the lid, mark with name, address, phone, and checkin as extra baggage.

What's Not Included

Your personal gear, sleeping bag, meat processing, shipping, taxidermy, license and tags, 6% state sales tax, motels, restaurants, gratuities to staff, and any items not listed as being included.
