Welcome to Bull Creek Outfitters where we specialize in trophy mountain lion hunts and Nevada trophy big game hunts, including mountain lion, trophy mule deer, record book elk and all three species of Big Horn sheep.
Nevada Department of Wildlife records reflect that we consistently harvest more trophy mountain lions than any other guide service in the Silver State and are renowned as some of the most successful mountain lion and cougar guides in the world. Our hunts are personalized and our guides are very professional. Bull Creek Outfitters guide a select number of serious sportsmen and women each year. We aim to keep each hunt 1 on 1 (1 guide per hunter) or 2 on 1 (2 guides per hunter) and strive to make each hunt memorable and as successful as possible.
"When you hire us as your big game guide and outfitter , not only are you guided by a professional big game guide but we are in the field scouting for trophy class big game animals long before the season opens and we are keeping tabs on numerous trophy class animals learning each ones habits, feeding times, locations water holes etc.. We are constantly scouting new country to harvest quality trophy animals often times packing into wilderness and back country with horses and mules to locate the "big ones" that most guides miss along the roads. Camping out days and weeks on end allows us to do this. Our knowledge and work ethic is unbeatable. Come and experience big game hunting at its best with professional guides. After all if you've spend the time, effort and money tags and licenses and are fortunate enough to draw a Nevada trophy big game tag you owe it to yourself to hire an experienced staff of guides to help you harvest your trophy and make it a memorable enjoyable hunt."
Our snow hunts typically run from the first week of December through the last week of February. A mountain lion track is found in the snow, usually crossing a two track, trail or road. The hounds are then released and allowed to trail the mountain lion until the big cat is treed or bayed. Four wheel drives, A.T.V's, horses, mules and snowmobiles are the primary means of transportation while in pursuit of mountain lions in snow conditions.
Dry Ground Hunts
Our dry ground lion hunts may occur year-round. Dry ground mountain lion hunts are conducted using four wheel drives and horses. Early morning hours will find you and your guide riding seasoned mules and mountain horses behind a well trained pack of lion hounds. The hounds are hunted in a free-cast fashion searching for the scent of where a mountain lion has walked during the pre-dawn hours. When the hounds find or "strike" the scent of a mountain lion track, the guide will then determine age, sex and size of the cat and direction of travel. If the guide is satisfied with the track, the hounds are allowed to keep trailing. Meanwhile, atop your horses and or mules, you and your guide follow in hot pursuit of the hounds until the cat is treed or bayed.
Note: Nevada is the only state that allows mountain lion hunting 24 hours a day, therefore harvesting your trophy mountain lion is not limited to daylight hours.
