Hunting Areas

More than 30 years ago, Wade Lemon, alongside Adam Clements and the late Shaun Styne, pioneered successful leopard hunts with hounds in Africa. Their groundbreaking efforts led to widespread success, fulfilling the dreams of many hunters seeking trophy leopards. However, hound hunting has since been restricted in most African countries, except Zimbabwe.

Now, Wade Lemon Hunting proudly partners with Shaun Buffee Safaris to offer limited Trophy Lion hunts. Shaun Buffee Safaris adopts a western big game approach to hunting big cats, emphasizing scouting, patterning, meticulous observation, and conservationist efforts.

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.
