Travel Information

  • You will fly to Colorado Springs and rent a car.
  • Arrangements can be made for pick up by the outfitter.

Recommended Gear

  • Temperatures can range from well below zero to the mid 40’s.
  • We recommend you bring warm, waterproof hiking boots, thermals, and any other cold weather gear you may have.
  • Dressing in layers is helpful as often times it warms up mid-morning or afternoon. The terrain can range from steep rocky mountain sides to heavily timbered, thick forest, so it’s not uncommon to take of and put on layers as you hunt.
  • On a mountain lion hunt, you may be out hunting for many hours, so bring snacks and drinks with you in your backpack/hunting pack.
