Our Approach

We are a family owned and operated business with a mission to take you on an Arizona mountain lion hunt of a lifetime.  Wade was born and raised on ranches where his love for hunting first began.  We do believe that you have to hunt lions year-round to keep your dogs in top shape and know what the lions are doing in the area that you hunt.  Wade has been addicted to tracking this elusive animal since he was a kid.  For that reason he only guides mountain lion hunts.

Founder & CEO

If you are not completely convinced you got your money’s worth at any time during your hunt the remainder of your hunt package will be refunded.  That’s my guarantee to you as a person taking a risk deciding where and who to trust your dollar to.   I work my hardest to send everyone home successful and you will know it by the time you leave here.  I want everyone to be able to enjoy lion hunting that’s why I have designed my business around being affordable and as little risk as possible for you as a hunter.

As hostess at the lodge, I really want all the hunters to feel like they are part of our extended family.  We live right here where we hunt so we won’t be setting up a camp anywhere.  We have a separate guest casita with 2 bedrooms and private bathroom.  We really are so fortunate to have a beautiful set-up and location in the desert with big night sky’s and breath taking views!

Wade and dogs


The Real Talent

My dogs are an amazing pack of hounds that will not bark or trail anything besides a mountain lion because that’s what they have been trained to do and that’s all they do.  I really could talk about how good my dogs are and how I am a great dry ground hunter just like everybody else because I do believe 110% in my abilities and all my dogs but I wasn’t raised to brag on myself.
