PAST 8 YEARS PRODUCED
70 CATS FOR 76 HUNTERS
67 WERE TOMS AND SEVERAL B&C

Winter of 2012/2013 produced 11 cats for this outfitter’s 14 hunters. 2 females were taken and 2 hunters passed on females. The area around his home has a 12 cat quota and his hunters took 9 before the quota was filled and the area closed.  In the winter of 2011/2012 his 14 hunters tagged 12 toms, including 3, possibly 4 booners.  The 2 unsuccessful hunters came in a group of 3 the day after Thanksgiving and only one hunter took home a cat. The remaining 11 hunters throughout the season all took toms, including a monster taken on dry ground that would weigh 190 pounds.

Winter of 2010/2011 was unbelievable when his 14 hunters took 14 toms and 5 made book.

5-day hunts from late November to early March are $5,500 guided 1x1. He hunts 6 different units in western Colorado. Hunters mostly stay at the outfitters home in Rangely or possibly a travel trailer and meals are included. Most hunters fly into Grand Junction, where you are met by the outfitter. He is equipped to take a couple buddies at the same time, making this a very high success hunt for a party of 2. He has plenty of dogs and employs a couple died-in-the-wool cat guides that assist when necessary. HCU’s Bob Wodzisz has been on this hunt. Hunt ML675.  Pictures from this Hunt.

 

BRITISH COLUMBIA HUNT $5000
32 CATS (31 TOMS) FOR 37 HUNTERS
OVER PAST 8 WINTERS

Last winter, 2012/2013, he had 4 hunters take 3 toms and the unsuccessful hunter was only able to hunt 4 days.

In the winter of 2011/2012 his 4 hunters scored on 3 toms and 2 of them measured out at 15 inches. This area is well known for big toms and the price is quite low at only $5,000 plus license and tax for a 7-day hunt compared to other outfits in this area that charge over $7,500.  The scenery is fantastic, the toms typically are quite large and the outfitter is a hunting maniac that truly enjoys the chase. He takes a very limited number of hunters per year, typically 3 or 4, in his 3,500 square mile concession near the Washington border. Hunters are also allowed to take a bobcat on a $750 kill fee and if conditions are right sometimes a lynx.

Hunting methods are normally driving logging roads by pickup or snow machine looking for tracks. Nice lodge accommodations make this an excellent hunt for husband and wife or taking a spouse as a non-hunter.

Hunters fly into Spokane, Washington and rent a car for the short drive across the border.  Next available opening is winter of 2014/2015.  HCU’s Bob Wodzisz, scored on a big cougar and lynx on this hunt. Hunt ML140.  Pictures from this Hunt.

IF NO LION IS TREED

Last winter this outfitter hosted 5 hunters, taking 4 toms and 1 female lion. 3 of the toms were super cats with skull sizes of 15 3/16, 15 and 14 ¾ and weighed from 160 to a whopping 180 pounds. At press time he still had one opening between Christmas and New Years.  Winter of 2011/2012 produced 7 lions for 8 hunters including 6 toms.

This is a very personal family operation that offers 5-day hunts for $5,000 with nice ranch house accommodations. If 2 hunters come together he will allow them to stay 10 days. The outfitter also offers a return trip for only half price if he fails to tree you a lion. License is about $350 and roundtrip airport pickup in Grand Junction is $150.

HCU has had several hunters take their spouses on this hunt and the outfitter’s wife will take them on some real nice day trips to the surrounding towns where they can sightsee and shop. Non-hunter pricing is $150 per day. Hunts start December 10 and run into late
February. Hunt ML21.  Pictures from this Hunt.

 

THE BEST
LYNX HUNT
IN NORTH AMERICA

Over the past 8 years this outfitter has taken 45 lynx for 50 hunters, an unbelievable feat. He has a 3,500 square mile area located in prime lynx, cougar and bobcat habitat in southern British Columbia just north of the state of Washington.  His mountain lion hunts are also very successful, as well as being known to produce some big toms. In 2012/13 winter his 12 cougar hunters took home 11 cats. In 2011/12 all 6 hunters took home toms.

He starts November 15, mainly for lynx and gets going on the cougars about December 8. 7-day hunts are $6,500 for lynx, $8,500 for cougar or $10,000 for a combination lynx/cougar/bobcat or $5,000 for a female cougar plus 6% HST tax.  Hunters stay in the guest cabin by the house and are picked up in Penticton, B.C.
