There are ways to hunt lions in the backcountry.  People use mules or horses to get back in the wilderness areas, or boat upriver to spots to cast dogs out.

BC is the place to go, imo, for the best chance at a big lion.

We can find you a big cat up in the Selkirks for sure.  We rarely use horses or mules though.  If you want remote, we can do that.  Much of the unit is WAY up north and requires a 20+ mile snowmobile ride to get into, then it's a lot of work because access is tough.  We catch big cats there, but it's not a cakewalk.

We use snowmobiles to access snowed out areas, I'm often 20 miles from my truck, but we hunt areas that have road access be it by truck or snowmobile. It sounds like you want a wilderness hound hunting experience without the use of motorized travel. Go to the Idaho Outfitters Board website and search for outfitters in the Selway and Frank Church Wilderness areas. There are game herds that winter back in those areas and there are outfitters who hunt cats there.

Cats have been hunted hard in most states and in BC and Alberta, there are plenty of cats but big toms are not as numerous as they once were no matter where you go. To be honest Washington has some of the best odds of finding a record book tom, in 1987 we killed the former P&Y World Record in Washington, it's too bad we can no longer use hounds in WA.

Good Luck, cougar hunting is my favorite hunt, you will enjoy it!

Idaho still has some nice cats, but like Bearpaw said we do have some nice cats here also, just a little harder to hunt.

In Arizona, cougars can be hunted year 'round. I've seen 2 in 3 1/2 months of living here.
I couldn't care less about what anybody says..............

On second glance it looks like blood.

I've been told the guy holding that cat is 6'-3" tall.

That cat is a Wallyhauss.

There are big cats in every state that has them. What style of hunting do you want to do is going to decide where you should go. There is no guarantee you will find a big cat even if you spent the entire year hunting with an outfitter. You should look for an outfitter that offers a good enjoyable hunt and hope to find a good cat. The best bet to find a big tom is to go with an outfitter that has access to an area that the general public does not and they only take a limited amount of hunters. Do you want to hunt in the snow or dry ground?
