Hunting Equipment

Our mountain lion hunting equipment is top-notch. This includes State of the Art GPS tracking system, snow machines, 4×4 trucks and ATVs. To save valuable time mountain lion hunting in Idaho we have designed and built a super fast loading and unloading system for our snowmobiles. And let’s not forget the best hounds in the business!

Our Salmon Idaho Hunting Guides are busy Pre-scouting prior to all hunts. Hunters are not forced to harvest any lion in order to end the hunt. Our Idaho mountain lion hunts are 8 days. It can be really cold this time of year so warm clothing is very important. Our family owned Salmon Idaho Outfitters business includes John, Justin and Luke, with 45 accumulative years experience, who personally guide all of our mountain lion hunts.

“The one word that comes to mind to describe my mountain lion experience is AWESOME! When Gary and I booked this trip 3 years ago, we never could have dreamed we would harvest, with archery equipment, 2 mature lions in one week, let alone one day. It is quite apparent that lion hunting is a passion at Rawhide. This is evidenced by the quality of the hounds and the passion and knowledge that Johnny and the boys possess when it comes to chasing lions.” Todd Luecke
