I've been on 3 guided mountain lion hunts, but Buckshot was the only outfitter to produce results. Here's an anecdote that gives some insight to their operation: I was hunting with 2 guides, Glen & Cory, who treed a lion on a snowy mountainside just before dark on the 2nd day out. After shooting the lion, rounding up the dogs, and gathering our geer, we were operating in total darkness. The guides decided it wouldn't be smart to head down the hill since I was getting leg cramps (didn't drink enough water!), we had only one flashlight, and no water. They started a campfire and prepared to siwash for the night. However, Clint Gray, who was in contact with us by CB radio, figured we'd be better off back at the house! Clint headed up the mountain with extra flashlights & water, trying to locate us in the dark. He found us using GPS receivers that the guides carry. We made it off the mountain by 9pm. This is just one example of how Buckshot went the extra mile for its client.
