U-Trail’s Elite Gila Hunts Presents …

Quality Bear & Lion Hunts

Quality Bear & Lion hunts are now offered in the Gila National Forest and Gila Wilderness areas behind well-trained hounds and guides knowledgeable in the hunting area.

We are your “go-to” guides for successful predator hunting with the grand Gila area, in southwest New Mexico. There are plenty of high-quality bears and lions to track.

Nothing will get your heart pumping more then chasing predator animals that can fight back. From hounds to spot and stalk, we provide quality guiding and service at every level.

Hunts are rigg style off utv’s and trucks with warm cab and comfortable seats. When hounds strike a track we determine weather its a trail we can pursue, the fair chase begins!

Experienced and friendly guides Kris Dennison and  Curtis Davidson provides decades of predator hunting experience. Ensuring your successful harvest of a quality predator, along with safety and comfort. Kris is available (575 650 8888) for added details to your predator hunting experience.
