I want to kill a big cat, in a remote setting, over dogs.

Where and who?

Big cats in Idaho from what I understand. PM Bearpaw and Wacoyotehunter, they could provide some info I imagine

Pretty sure a little of both? I know Dale utilizes snowmobiles a lot.

I've heard Chile and Argentina are good too.  But I don't think South American lions get as big as the North American ones.  Colorado still allows dogs (last I heard) and puts out big kitties.

I may not be understanding what you are looking for.  Most settings, even out of trucks or snow machines, are remote.  Hound hunting has, in my experience, been one of the most physically demanding forms of hunting I have done.  Can you clarify remote?

Unit 17 of the Selway would be a good example.
Perhaps I'm wrong but I believe the more remote the older the age class of cat.

I'm all in on the physically demanding thingy.

Anything remote is going to be snowed out. I use to utilize snow mobiles and sleds for my dogs. to get as far back as I could, but the cats follow the prey down as they migrate, they are not going to be hanging way back in the high country if all the game is down in wintering areas. 

I guess it would be different if you were looking for desert style dry ground hunting.


and there are big cats every where..one of the biggest cats I have ever saw was started off a track on highway 20 above Tonasket.

Agreed and true.
Starting a cat off Highway 20 is exactly what I don't want to do but I get your point.
Thanks.
