Cougar Hunting with Hounds
Cougar hunting with hounds is a very misunderstood subject. I’m looking to help you know more before you book a guided cougar hunt. First off, cougar hunting with hounds is one of the only ways to successfully harvest a cougar. It’s also one of the only ways to successfully harvest a Tom. This is better for cougar population numbers. It’s literally the only way to get it done. If you want a high probability of success you will need to hire a cougar outfitter to help you. My hope is to help you be more informed on how they are hunted and why. This will help you make better decisions as to where and with whom you hunt them.
