With the abundance of ungulates that are available in the Kootenays, there is little trouble sustaining a healthy cougar population. Book cats are taken on a regular basis from this area. We have a high success rate hunting cougars during the winter when their size can be determined by the track. Baying hounds in full pursuit of North America’s largest cat, makes this predator hunt one of the most thrilling.

These big cats are one of the most efficient predators in the wild and make an impressive trophy. Taking a few cougars each year helps to keep a healthy balance in our wildlife populations.
