Utah Cougar (Mountain Lion) Guided Hunts

Welcome To The Shane Scott Outfitting Cougar/Mountain Lion Hunting Information Page

When it comes to harvesting big cats, we are the best in the business. Our houndsman are handpicked and among the best in the nation.

Come with us and follow our pack of well trained hounds as they track one of these elusive cats through some of the Rocky Mountains most scenic country!

We hunt Cougars from November to May. We use 4-wheel drive pickups, snowmobiles, ATV's, and horses to follow the cats depending upon conditions.

A Cougar hunt with hounds can sometimes become a physical fitness test. We recommend anyone interested in a hound hunt to be in excellent physical condition. There is nothing more frustrating for a hunter than to lack the stamina to make the entire run. For those wishing to pursue this hunt, you are in for a very exciting time.

Utah has a Conservation Tag program. Conservation Tags are 100% tax deductible for the buyer. This conservation money is used on wildlife projects here in Utah. It is money well spent for wildlife and habitat. These tags allow us to hunt the premium areas without waiting to draw a tag. We can assist you in purchasing these tags and help you apply for the big game drawings.

Below are some pictures of our past client's trophies.

Note: The Thousand Lake and Oak Creek are rugged hunting units with difficult access. They have a lower harvest success rate.

Note: The Split Unit tags will turn into a Harvest Objective tag after Feb 27, 2021.

The hunter can then hunt ANY of the Split Units open for Harvest Objective Cougar Hunting until that units quota is filled.
