Central Utah Trophy Mountain Lion Hunts



There are many locations across the western United States to hunt mountain lions. Most of these locations offer over-the-counter permits with very long season dates. Just like many species, when the permits are easy to obtain, the trophy quality tends to struggle. If you are serious about having the best opportunity, to harvest an above average mountain lion, Utah is a must apply for state! With limited-entry units, Utah is one of the few places that allows hunters to pursue lions that are truly managed for trophy quality. WTA TAGS is working with one of the best houndsman in the industry for these premier draw hunts. He and his hounds have been chasing trophy cats for over 20 years all over the western United States. These hunts will be conducted off horseback, 4-wheel drive trucks, and ATV's, but plan on some time on your boots, as these cats can end up in some rough country. With the aid of the best technology each hound has a GPS tracking device, and can be monitored from amazing distances. What this means for you is you will not have to pursue the dogs until the cat is in the tree or bayed. Its a real game changer and has made it so that many more hunters can experience these amazing hunts, and have opportunites to harvest the most elusive predator in the country. Call WTA TAGS today about building valuable bonus points, to someday hunt the giant lions of Utah’s very best, limited-entry areas. 378
