This is your chance to hunt Mountain Lions in British Columbia’s Cariboo Mountains with one of Canada’s most experienced guides. With over 42 years of experience guiding in the area, this is the outfitter that can put you on the Mountain Lion of a lifetime!

Can you get a cheaper hunt in the states? Sure, but this is British Columbia! I can only describe it as beautiful. Personally, it is the most beautiful place I have ever hunted. Tremendous amounts of bears, moose, deer, and of course Mountain Lions and Lynx. The area has lots of game, great accommodations, and food. If you have the means and the time to get here, you will not regret it. It is like hunting in a painting!

Mountain Lion Hunting in British Columbia

Mountain lions are found in abundance in this area. Contrary to mountain goat hunting, you do not need to be in mountain goat shape to be successful on this hunt. These hunts will primarily be based out of a lodge or cabin. You will have a comfortable bed, tasty food, and see lots of bears. I hunted there in the fall for Mountain goats and saw bears every day. Your hunt will be done using highly trained dog packs. You will ride the remote roads in the mountains looking for fresh tracks. Once a big mountain lion track is found, the dogs will be released on the track, and you will monitor their pursuit via GPS Tracking Collars. Once the cat becomes stationary, you will scramble to the nearest access point and either pursue on foot or utilize snowmobiles to get you as close as practical and then make the final approach on foot. It helps to be in decent shape, as mountain lions will often run into some of the most rugged terrain imaginable. Sometimes they will tree, which makes approaching the mountain lion easier, but you still may need to walk some to get into position for a shot.

Bow Hunting for Mountain Lion

This is a hunt that can be accomplished with a bow. You will need to be able to walk some, but the outfitter is highly effective at getting his clients a mountain lion with a bow. With a crossbow, it is even easier. The expected shot range is 10-15 yds. If you have dreamed of hunting a mountain lion in the mountains, this is the hunt to book!

Canadian Lynx Hunting

This area has an abundance of Canadian Lynx. The outfitter will be able to call one into the shooting range using a predator call or the dog pack may be used.  You can expect near 100% success on this portion of the hunt.

Canadian Wolf Hunting

The area has a good population of wolves. Hunting wolves is hit and miss. But if the opportunity arises to shoot one and you don’t have a tag, the wolf cannot be shot. This outfitter allows you to take a wolf for free on all of his hunts on an opportunity basis. But you must be in possession of a tag to take advantage of this rare opportunity.

Sizes of the local Mountain Lion Population.

This area has large mountain lions, with many reaching into the Boone and Crocket record book. The #4 SCI mountain lion was taken in this outfitter’s concession. About 50% of the mountain lions taken are extremely large, with his largest cat weighing 210 lbs.

The Caribou Mountain Region

This outfitter has the exclusive guiding rights to 3,500 square miles of prime big game country bordering Wells Gray Provincial Park. His territory is in Management Units 5-2 and 5-15 in the Cariboo region of British Columbia. The terrain varies from slow meandering rivers where the great chinook salmon spawn to lofty alpine meadows and mountains reaching more than 8,000 feet. Approximately one-third of this area is roadless wilderness, while the remainder has logging road access to his camps and hot spots for bear moose, and deer.

Link to Mountain Lion Hunting Area Map

The outfitter has a wide variety of big game species to hunt within his territory. Silver-tipped grizzlies inhabit much of our rugged mountainous terrain but currently cannot be hunted. Black bears in various color phases are plentiful throughout the area. The average black bear here squares over 6 feet, with many going over 7 feet. Wolves are present as well and can be taken on all his hunts, or as a hunt unto themselves. Canadian moose are widespread throughout this territory, with trophies being taken each year in the 40" to 55" category. The mountain goats here are second to none, with record book billies taken annually. The region has become well known for its massive mature mule deer but, as in many areas, in recent years, has declined in population. Many record book cats also come out of the Cariboo and the largest cougar taken there ranks # 4 in the world.

The Canadian Mountain Lion Hunt

This will be a hunt that utilizes vehicles or Rangers to access areas that the mountain lions like to roam while searching for food. On a typical day’s hunt, you will eat breakfast and depart at daybreak or shortly afterward for select locations where you will drive the logging roads looking for fresh mountain lion tracks. Once a suitable fresh track is spotted, the dogs will be released, and the hunt is on! You can expect shots to range from 20-40 yards.

This outfitter hunts Mountain Lion in BC from December - March. The outfitter attends the SCI Convention, so those dates are not available.

The best time for this hunt is January – February after a snowfall.

Lynx permits are typically available, and with the high population of Lynx in this region, success runs near 100%.

The Canadian Mountain Lion Lodge

Most hunts are conducted from the outfitter’s base camp. The outfitter has a home/lodge set on a scenic river with comfortable client bedrooms, clean bathrooms, and excellent food. I still think about the Grouse breast that the outfitter's wife served up!  Additionally, the outfitter has a series of lodges/cabins placed throughout the area. Some of these cabins are lakefront and offer outstanding fishing and views. Although it is likely that you will stay at the outfitter's home base, it is possible that one of these lodges or cabins might be used for a day or two.

Proper fitting boots suitable for hiking and climbing in the mountains when snow is on the ground are important for this hunt. Kennetrek’s insulated mountain boots are perfect fits for this hunt! Just be sure to bring a pair of warm insulated boots that are broken in to prevent foot problems. Good cold-weather clothing and warm gloves are also a must for this hunt.

The Mountain Lion Outfitter

This outfitter has been hunting, fishing, and running traplines in this region for his whole life. He has continuously outfitted in this area for 42 years and over time, has accumulated many great exclusive hunting areas from other outfitters’ retirements. His hunting areas now cover over 3,500 sq miles of game-filled wilderness habitat. He maintains over 200 miles of trail, allowing for horse access into remote areas that receive little hunting pressure.

This outfitter has some of the best hunting areas in British Columbia. This is a memorable hunt in one of Canada’s more beautiful settings. If you can make this hunt, I highly recommend it!

Getting There

Many hunters drive to the main lodge. It is about a 5 to 6-hour drive North of Vancouver, BC.

For those of you that will fly in, Williams Lake, British Columbia is your destination. Most hunters will fly to Vancouver, and then take a flight on Pacific Coastal Airlines to Williams Lake, where they will be met by the outfitter and transported the 1-hour drive to his main lodge.
