Cougar Hunt


Cougar Hunts on the Ranch have only been allowed for the last 3 years. We have a very healthy population of big toms. Cougar season runs from April 1, 2017–March 31, 2018, outside of all elk hunting dates. Our cougar hunt is 5 days, including excellent lodging, meals, and guide service. We offer transportation across the ranch, but you are welcome to bring and use your own vehicle for the hunt.  We have high quality facilities for processing an animal. Including multiple walk-in freezers, multiple pulley hoists, a heated indoor shop and hot water for cleaning. See prices and dates at the bottom of the page.

New Mexico CougarOur Ranch

The only way you can be guaranteed the best hunting experience in New Mexico is with a private landowner tag on a large private ranch. Our facilities are world class and reside on a working ranch. When you choose WCR for your private cougar hunting experience, you will be staying in the heart of prime elk habitat and with 15,000 acres of private land to hunt, we have the flexibility to style your hunt to fit your particular needs and desires.

And best of all, the minute you arrive you will be in the middle of the hunting environment and stay there for its entirety. You won’t be shuttled down some highway to hunt someone else’s land. You will be on our ranch, hunting our land.


Our guides are highly skilled, professional, and intimately familiar with the property. They are among the most knowledgeable, helpful, and experienced guides available anywhere. Unlike many other New Mexico outfitters, we provide the hunt on a ranch in which we live and work on all year round.
