Colorado mountain lion hunting is good because they have good snow, and big toms. That’s a good mix! Most of Colorado consists of prime mountain lion hunting country, with a good population of mature toms.
Typically you’ll cover country in trucks, 4-wheelers and snowmobiles to find a fresh track. Once you find a track that looks good, you “turn out”.

Sometimes the chase ends quickly, and sometimes you’re in for the hike of your life. You just never know.
