Starting on our southern border, Warner Glenn hunts the dry desert and sierras of southern Arizona. Together with his daughter, Kelly Kimbro, they have earned an outstanding reputation for their hounds. I first heard about them from another lion outfitter who raved about the quality of the Glenns' dogs. Houndsmen are a tight-knit group, so this praise was the highest compliment. You may recognize both Glen and Kimbro from various advertising spots. Several Pentax ads feature Warner, who epitomizes what most people picture when they think "western," and Kimbro appears in a number of Ruger ads.
Aside from their fantastic hounds, I selected the Glenns for the hunting experience they provide. Many sportsmen feel that the southwestern desert, with its wonderful climate and terrain, is the closest thing to heaven on earth. Certainly, Glenn's hunts take place when the desert is at its finest. Moderate temperatures are often a welcome break for hunters from the frigid north. Other hunters appreciate the fact that while this hunt is conducted behind dogs, the hunter gets to ride quality mountain mules instead of following on foot or snowmobile. Still others enjoy the thrill of watching the chase in the wide-open terrain.
The Glenns prefer to hunt from December through March, and they schedule their hunters ahead of time, as opposed to having them come on an "on-call" basis. Clients fly into Tucson and then drive to one of two ranch headquarters where they stay for the duration of their hunts. All hunts are scheduled for 10 days, which is normally plenty of time to find a cougar.........(continued)
