I was fortunate enough to be given a lion hunt with Swan Mountain Outfitters as a Christmas gift from my wife and parents. It turned out to be one of the greatest gifts that could be given! Everyone was very helpful answering questions and helping with logistics before my arrival, and Pat and JoAnne were very welcoming hosts during my stay. The food was excellent! The guide/houndsman was top-flight; I really can’t say enough good things about him. He was so good, in fact, that my entire hunt lasted only four hours, and a 150 lb tom was taken. I have already recommended Swan Mountain Outfitters to friends and I plan to return in the next year or two with a family member for another lion hunt. My only recommendation to anyone considering a lion hunt, is to spend as much time as possible getting in shape. These aren’t easy hunts, but the reward is worth the work! If you are lucky enough to book with Swan Mountain Outfitters, you won’t be disappointed!
