My name is Scott Summers, Owner of Canyon Rim Outfitters. I am registered, insured, bonded and all or part of this operation is conducted on Public Lands under special permit with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and private land leases.
My permits run from 5,600 feet to 11,000 feet and takes in oak brush, aspen groves, dark timber, canyons and meadows. This is great habitat for lions.
We offer the best in Colorado mountain lion hunts with a very well trained pack of cold nosed hounds, ATV’s with track systems and 4x4 trucks. Please visit our Lion Hunts page for more information.
Mountain Lion Licenses can be purchased over the counter when you arrive for your hunt. The Colorado Division of Wildlife does require all hunters to complete an online Mountain Lion Identification Course before purchasing a hunting license.
We are a family owned and operated business with a mission to take you on a Colorado lion hunts of a lifetime. We strictly/exclusively hunt mountain lions, unlike competitors that sell lion hunts to subsidize them by keeping their elk and deer guides busy during the winter months.
We have an excellent team of well-trained plott hounds that can get the job done in all weather conditions. Canyon Rim Outfitters is well known for catching trophy toms in some of Colorado’s roughest and extreme conditions. We aren’t using old beat up equipment and dogs that’s been taped together to last another week.
All of us, including the plott hounds, at Canyon Rim will work hard and long hours to send you home successful with a successful hunt. I’m not in the business to separate you from your wallet or fix you a fancy 5-Star meal and pamper you. We are here to get you a trophy lion.
Getting up early on a cold winter morning, loading the excited plott hounds into the dog box of the truck, then following the pack of plotts as they are tailing and walking a track through some of the most rugged and beautiful canyons and mountains in western Colorado. This hunt will burn images in your mind that will never be forgotten as long as you live.
