What To Expect on Your Hunting Trip

Hunts are primarily on horseback to access the most remote areas, ensuring an authentic and undisturbed hunting experience. For those seeking a less traditional approach, we also utilize ATVs and trucks as necessary. Accommodations range from heated RV trailers to comfortable town stays, catering to all preferences.


Hunting Methods: 

Primarily horseback with options for ATV and truck use in less accessible areas, ensuring a diverse hunting experience.


Equipment and Preparation: 

As the hunter you do not need to bring lots of extra optics etc, just a nice pair of binoculars, and a good, long range rifle.  

Hunting Horseback, we prefer a rifle that is not extremely bulky or long, that we can carry in a saddle scabbard.  A 7mm to 30 caliber rifle is recommended.



Options include camp stays in heated RV trailers or lodging in town for access to amenities, based on hunter preference.

I have been hunting with Wade Lemon Hunting for 5 seasons. We have harvested some really nice trophies. They have access to great areas and can assist in obtaining special, limited or restricted tags. The team of guides they have are really excellent, they are very knowledgeable and passionate about trophy quality and hunt hard to give you the best hunting experience possible. I have several hunts scheduled with them this season and I’m really looking forward to each one.

I was searching for a high quality mountain lion hunt. Wade Lemon had been recommended to me by a trusted associate in Texas. I researched some other outfitters but ultimately chose Wade. It turned out to be a great decision. Wade’s guides’ busted their backs for me and were top notch in every aspect. By the end of the hunt I was rewarded with a world class trophy. The experience was everything I was hoping for. I’m already working on booking my next hunt with Wade and his team.
