American Houndsman Del Cameron

For 50 years Del Cameron has been a houndsman. More than 35 of those years he bred, raised, and trained his own strain of registered Blueticks hounds for his lion and bear hunting. He pioneered professional lion and bear hunting in the northern Rockies and was the only full time professional lion and bear guide in Montana for many years. His knowledge of these game animals is reserved for only a few living hunters today.

With his years of outdoor experience throughout the West and his personal integrity, Del Cameron became a leader in the world of sport hunting. He is one of the very few in the entire West who had a year around hunting business; and he personally instructed students at his unique School for Guides in the 1970's which was the first such school of its kind to be licensed by any state; Hunting was his full time occupation. He made his living off the back of a horse and with his hounds.

Now retired at age 70 as a professional hunter, big game outfitter and wilderness guide, Del Cameron still maintains some quality hounds that are among the finest of hunting bloodlines. He is at home in the mountains of western Montana and still roams the Rockies from Montana and Idaho to Arizona and New Mexico.

Del Cameron knows this life from the rough side out because he has spent his lifetime living it. His intimacy with hounds and the game they hunted is legendary. In his book he relates many mysteries of the mountains and reveals facts about lions and bears that have never before been told. He exposes some secrets of scent and shares his successful hound training and breeding philosophies.
