“Dear, Logan and Josie,

 

I wanted to share my thanks for your hospitality during my hunt this year in 2017. Logan thanks for taking me hunting at the last minute, much appreciated. Josie thanks for your great cooking and warm welcoming into your home. I pray you both have a blessed year and that God has his hand upon you for years to come. One of the biggest highlights was getting to know you both in the short time we had in camp. Hope to see you guys in the near future for lunch or dinner sometime. Here is my testimonial if someone wants to know what I experienced:

 

Logan and his wife Josie are great people to know. Great Christian folks who love their family and most of all Christ. This man and wife team will ensure you have a great hunt and that you are feed some great country cookin. Logan’s dogs are well trained as well as his horses. I had a great time just riding around seeing the countryside on a horse/ four wheeler, enjoying the scenery. A great highlight of the trip was watching the dogs work the trails. Once the dogs hit the trail they were on it, listening to the hounds as they were tracking I will never forget. What a sound! Hound dogs on the trail. Great experience! I like to mention Logan made sure everything was taken care of, all you had to do was get up and get ready for the hunt and aim straight. I was blessed to be able to harvest such a magnificent, beautiful animal in God’s creation. I would highly recommend Logan and Josie if you want to have a great time and be well taken care of. It was great to get to know the Anderson family.

 

God Bless You. (John 3:16-17)

“Going on a mountain lion hunt has been on my bucket list for at least 15 years. After a lot of research and talking to some people I made a call to 7 Anchor Outfitters and spoke with Logan Anderson. After our conversation I knew I wanted to hunt with Logan. I later called him back to set a date. Although, over a year away, the time flew by and I was on my way to hunt mountain lions in Arizona.

 

After the long drive my brother Pat and I arrived at 7 Anchor Outfitters. Once meeting Logan face-to-face and watching him work his ranch I knew I had made the right decision of who to hunt lions with.

 

Our mornings started out with Blessings for a safe day, and for us to be able to enjoy all of the great things we have in life. As we sat out on our hunts watching Logan and Cody look for fresh sign and work the hounds (which are second to none) was phenomenal, the way they all worked together. We hunted the vast country, Logan getting off his horse several times to look for fresh sign. When he found a fresh, faint track in the sand on our second day, he called his dogs to him, and the chase was on. The hounds ironed out the trail and got the lion jumped and running (it happened fast). As we were trying to keep up with the dogs Logan kept pointing out fresh lion tracks in the sand as we rode along. He kept telling me it was a good lion if we could get it caught. Once the dogs got my lion bayed in the boulders the pace increased and got very exciting.

 

After I had harvested my lion and we were packing him out, we talked about how long I had waited for this day to come true and how great of an experience it was. Logan with the help of his family and guides made it all possible.

 

Logan is a very good tracker, very experienced, and an awesome outfitter that takes great pride in his hunts. If you are looking for a hunt of a lifetime you should contact Logan Anderson of 7 Anchor Outfitters. Logan and his guides are among the best there is, the scenery is breathtaking, and the food is delicious. It has been a pleasure to have made new friends and I hope that I can hunt with them again some day. Feel free to contact me with any questions you may have at weaselpcs@yahoo.com.

“If you are looking for someone who is serious about Mountain Lion hunting look no further than Seven Anchor Outfitters. I have hunted several times with Logan and have caught a lion each time. His knowledge of lions and their habits is impressive, along with the work he puts into scouting and finding the freshest sign and hottest hunting spots in the area. Many times I have seen him get off his horse and study almost impossible to see lion tracks in the dry dirt or sand to make sure we are going in the right direction or to see what size lion we are dealing with. Also he has an impressive network of ranchers he works with who notify him of a lion sighting or if they find a fresh kill or track.

 

Logan has some of the best hounds in the business, they are very well trained and he works with them trailing lions year round even when there are no hunters in camp. Each day you hunt with these dogs they have one goal in mind and that is to catch a lion.

 

So if you are looking for an experienced guide who will work hard for you as a client and has the best resources in the business then give Seven Anchor Outfitters a try. You will not be disappointed. I look forward to many more hunting trips with Logan.

 

As an added bonus the ladies back at the ranch kept us well fed with delicious dinners.”

“I’ve never wrote a testimonial before so I feel honored.

 

Before the hunt – Not knowing what my next big game hunt would be for, a friend and hunting buddy of mine from Minnesota asked me if I would want to go on a lion hunt. He told me he looked into Logan Anderson and his company Seven Anchor Outfitters in AZ and wanted to know what my thoughts were.

 

I got on their website and scrolled through the testimonials page. Reading through the many stories left from satisfied customers I decided to call one of the hunters that had listed his contact info. Following our conversation I phoned my hunting buddy and decided to book a hunt with Logan for late January 2016.

 

On the hunt – We spent the first 4 days getting up at 4:00am and riding a horse from 18-25 miles a day. I saw some of the most breathtaking scenery at the numerous locations we hunted. We saw lion tracks at every location where the dogs would take off on some and some they would not. Every time they would I thought, “this was the one.” Logan then would explain that it was probably an old track but I couldn’t help but think the latter.

 

On the 5th day we started off at a new location spotting tracks but nothing fresh. Logan decided to load up and check yet another spot and within 15 minutes of riding the dogs struck something up. It was around 1:00pm and we were high enough where we could watch the dogs work which was a pretty amazing sight to see first hand. We followed the dogs on horseback while they “did their thing” for what seemed like 3hrs of crawling over boulders and climbing up and down hills. All week long Logan told me that if his dog named Bill “struck up” to have bow in hand, arrow nocked, and come running (I honestly thought “Bill” was mute). But sure enough when Bill struck up Logan looked at me and said, “we better get down there.” I get there and see Bill and all 11 other dogs barking up at a big cat standing at the top of a two story boulder looking down at them. What a beautiful sight. I was shaking like a leaf but fortunately made a good shot.

 

This by far ranks up there as one of the best hunts that I’ve ever been on. Instead of telling you how hard Logan and his dogs work and how good a cook Josie is, I thought I would share a little of my hunt.”

“I’ve been wanting to go on a lion hunt for YEARS, but time, money, and other obligations and circumstances have always gotten in the way. Upon reflection, I’m glad that my first mountain lion hunt was a long time in coming because every single aspect of the hunt with Logan Anderson was exceptional.

 

My wife accompanied me and we were housed at a local ranch and received the very best accommodations from Leslie and Mark of the L Bell Ranch. As far as the hunt went, I was successful with a nice tom on the 6th day of a 5-day hunt. The extra time gave me the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful Arizona landscape and see so many things that most people won’t get to experience. Logan worked hard, and I mean hard, to ensure that I was successful.

 

The first day we rode horses for 22 miles and the dogs traveled 45 miles. There were a couple of days that we left at 3:30 or 4:00 a.m., which meant that he had to get up a couple of hours before that to load the horses and dogs and travel to pick me up. We went five very long days without seeing any fresh tracks but he didn’t give up on me.

 

Logan asked if I could stay a couple of extra days and we left on the 6th day at 4:00 and spent a lot of the day walking. The dogs picked up a fresh scent at about 1:00 that afternoon and treed the lion about four hours later.

 

Logan had fresh horses and dogs every day for the hunt, and he texted or called every night to see if my wife or I needed anything. Logan is a good Christian man who prayed every day before we began our hunt. If anyone is interested in a memorable mountain lion hunt, I highly recommend Logan Anderson.

 

This may have been the only mountain lion hunt I’ll get to go on, but it couldn’t have been any better and surpassed everything I could imagine. I’m honored to be asked to provide a testimonial about my trip. After putting my thoughts into words, I went back and re-read the testimonials on his website. Every single word in every single testimonial could apply to me, but was said so much better by the other hunters.

 

Thanks, Logan, and I’m trying to figure out a way to come back to Arizona to hunt with you!”

“I have had a life-long dream for 50 + yrs. of hunting Mountain Lion. Finally in 2013 I reached a point where I could begin to plan for it. Problem was, where to begin. After narrowing it down to a few outfitters, I began to talk to references. In this regard one outfitter stood out in ways beyond the actual hunt itself. This outfitter was Logan Anderson of Seven Anchor Outfitters. After talking to Logan, I booked a hunt for early January, 2015.

 

Once the hunt began, I immediately realized I had made the right choice, regardless of whether I harvested a Mountain Lion or not. Logan, his family, and guides are among the most Christian, honest, and respectful people I have ever met. The time I spent with them actually humbled me considerably. I came back home with a different perspective on life.

 

As far as the hunt itself, it can be very physical. If you do not ride horses, 8 + hrs. in the saddle, especially the first day, can be very difficult. I did not have a great deal of traveling by foot, but the terrain would make it very tough to travel far, if you were not in good physical condition. Get yourself in shape before hunting with Logan.

 

Logan is extremely knowledgeable on Mountain Lions and their habits. Had it not been for his experience, the lion I killed would likely still be roaming Arizona. Logan’s persistence resulted in him locating that single lion footprint, after the dogs lost the track. This is not to say his dogs are sub-par. They are far from it. It’s just that the dry ground conditions are so difficult for any dog. Watching the dogs work a track is amazing. I saw them lick rocks and vegetation to get the slightest lion scent.

 

If you’ve not been to the Southwest, the incredible scenery cannot be explained. You just have to see it for yourself.

 

If you want an eye-opening, total hunt experience, then you should talk to Logan.

 

And oh yeah, your opportunity to harvest a lion is as good or better than you could find anywhere.”

 

God Bless
Good luck hunting

“As I pondered how to explain Logan Anderson as a guide; and my experience with him…..I discovered that it’s near impossible to put into words. Because what started out as the typical ‘booked hunt’ quickly changed all of my goals as a hunter. My goal before I started hunting with Logan was to hunt or fish in all 50 states; by the end of day 1; with Logan; my vision and hope is to hunt whatever Arizona and Logan have to offer.

 

One meeting, one conversation, and one evening with Logan and his family and you will understand the true meaning of the journey and a true appreciation for the success that you will likely have.

 

When it comes to my Mountain Lion hunt; trust me when I say that I had plenty of experience with no success before I booked with Logan (just ask him about my journey). The short version is that I have hunted with several guides & outfitters before but none of them gave absolutely everything they had each and every day.

 

Logan Anderson did…..plain and simple.”

“I’d been wanting to hunt and harvest a mountain lion for some time. I’m certain I would have achieved it, one way or the other, in time but I do not believe I could have had the richness of the experience I found on this hunt.

 

With an extremely busy schedule and not much time for fun, there are a few core values I look for in a guided hunt. I want to enjoy each moment to its fullest and I want the odds for success maximized. Finding a guide with some measure of knowledge is easy enough. Finding a guide with a personality that is enjoyable can prove a little more challenging and choosing the wrong guide can ruin a much anticipated and hard-earned adventure. Having said that, I cannot imagine a hunt that would have been more enjoyable or successful than my lion hunt with Logan. I thoroughly enjoyed the company, the landscape and all the unanticipated highlights brought by the experience of hunting with dogs on horseback.

 

I booked my second lion hunt with Logan midway through the first hunt, before we had even set eyes on a cat or had any assurance we would. I did this because I knew I would never be given better odds or enjoy better company. The truth is I got my moneys worth before the dogs treed the cat. Look no further, this is your hunt.”

“I have often heard the phrase, ‘It was the hunt of a lifetime!’ Then, I would just shrug it off and go on to the next website.

 

Well, I’m here to say that Logan Anderson and his Seven Anchor Outfitters was just that!! My longtime hunting friend, Norm and I have experienced many different hunts together, but we both agreed this was at the top of our list. When I came home from Arizona I told my family, ‘That was one of the hardest hunts I had ever been on. But it was truly one of the most enjoyable!’

 

I was first drawn to the website by the Bible verse that Logan had quoted. After a lengthy conversation with Logan personally, it was plain to see it was going to be a good hunt.

 

As a young boy I had always loved to go to the western movies. During this hunt I got to live out the dreams of what it must have been like in the old West, but with today’s modern amenities.

 

Each morning we were greeted by the sights and sounds of daily life on the ranch. We would head out on horseback looking for the elusive lion. While riding each day we were able to experience the beauty of the Arizona countryside. We got to see working gold mines, miles and miles of rocks and sand dotted with cactus and brush. I learned quickly the lesson that most every plant bites and to be careful where you sit!

 

Under the guidance and personal attention of Logan, Bubba, and Tanner we were always on the trail. We learned about the life on the Ranch and gained life-long friendships. Each night after a hard day, it was such a delightful experience to be welcomed home as if we were part of the family. After climbing out of a good hot shower we all sat around the table with family devouring fantastic meals and talk about the day, life on the Ranch, and life at home. It was a good clean, Christian environment. There was not any vulgar language or grumpy, complaining individuals. Only folks who truly wanted you to enjoy yourself and your hunt at their Ranch.

 

I must admit though, the most exciting part was following the sounds of barking dogs, hot on a trail looking for a lion. Norm and I were both lucky enough to have shot beautiful cats! What better way to top off a fantastic experience! It truly was, ‘A hunt of a life time!’”

 

God Bless,

“Be prepared for the hunt of a lifetime in the Arizona mountains and desert. The Anderson family of Seven Anchor Outfitters strives to make your mountain lion hunt memorable. Hunting large and small game on the East coast most of my life, I was more than excited to hunt my first lion out West this past April. As a guide and outfitter, Logan, takes great care of his horses, mules, and hunting dogs while Josie organizes the campsite and meals. This family takes pride in their hunts and will work hard to provide a successful hunt. From dawn to dusk (or dark in most cases), Seven Anchor Outfitter tracked lions for me until I had a lion in my site. I thought my heart was going to beat out of my chest when the dogs “lit” up and had a big tom in the tree. Wow, I couldn’t believe that I finally had a lion to mount. Thanks to Logan and Josie for making this an awesome hunt.”

Charles Reedy

“I went on my first ever lion hunt and first ever hunt in Arizona with Logan Anderson in March of 2013. Logan and and his wife Josie are first class people who treated me like family from the get go. The overall hunt experience was great, from the hospitality, to the food, the country, the horses/mules, and the dogs. Logan knows the areas he hunts in extremely well and knows where the cats are roaming. His horses and mules are very surefooted and gentle, and Logan took every precaution to make sure I was always comfortable in any situation while riding horseback through the rugged terrain. He will work with you to fit your hunt into your schedule. I would definitely recommend Seven Anchor Outfitters to anyone who wants to lion hunt! Please feel free to contact me by phone (704) 668-6551 or email reedy0312@yahoo.com with any questions about my experience.”

“Our mountain lion hunt, led by Logan Anderson, exceeded my expectations in most every respect. Logan, his wife Josie, and their two young daughters define the All-American western ranch family. It is indeed a pleasure to call these folks friends. We were graciously welcomed into their home for fine home-cooked meals at their dining room table. If you want to see what it takes to run a ranch and provide first-class lion hunts, check out the Anderson’s. When Josie wasn’t running errands, she was in the kitchen with a four-month old in one arm and doing the domestic chores with the other. Even the three-year old is a good hand, out with dad feeding and tending the livestock and lion dogs.

 

Logan is a professional at running a business of guiding hunts. Our hunt arrangements were easy to make and he had everything covered, prepared, and ready to go upon our arrival. Accommodations were good, we stayed in comfortable casitas.

 

Our party consisted of two hunters and one photographer. Logan arranged for one guide per client. Logan and the guides, Tanner and Bubba, are ‘real-deal’ cowboys, accomplished ranchers, and lion savvy hunters. They were attentive and looked out for us. Their work ethic is as good as it gets, like getting up at 2a.m. so we can be out by 4:30 in the morning. If you want to witness hard work, spend a day with any of these guys.

 

And even harder working for us, were the skilled lion dogs, horses, and mules. Logan has over 25 high quality lion dogs. They run all day. The horses and mules literally rode their shoes off in this tough rocky back-country.

 

Each day, we saw lion sign including a fresh kill on a yearling button-buck. The third day provided us a hot track. The dogs were in pursuit for five hours until the lion was ‘caught’ on a cliff ledge. Our mostly up and down pursuit included taking down fencing, putting it back up, ducking branches, and at times, bush-whacking through dense brush.

 

If the circumstances warrant, be prepared for long days in the saddle riding difficult terrain. Our third day had us leaving at 4:30am and we did not return until 8:00pm. This is no ‘dude-ranch’; lion hunting is serious business for these ranchers. They need to eliminate lions taking their calves. Logan and his guides will work as hard as you can handle. And for the hunter, they know where the lions are.”

Terry Holder

“I completed a cougar hunt guided by Logan Anderson this past January (2012). It was one of the most exciting hunts I’ve experienced. The hunt was well organized, the food was prepared by his wife, the horses well mannered and Logan knew where the cats roamed. He had hunted this particular cat for over a year so cat hunting can be challenging. Logan Anderson, his help and his family are the salt of the earth and I look forward to hunting with him sometime in the future.”

“Logan and Josie are great people and run a first class hunting operation. Logan is one of the hardest working guides I know. He is always scouting. Before you arrive and constantly while you are in camp. Logan is a known lion hunter in the area and has many contacts helping to find lions for him to hunt for his clients. Logan’s dogs and horses are top notch. Hunting lions from horseback with dogs is completely different than most other styles of hunting. It is something everyone should experience.”

“To meet Logan and his family has been a honor. His hunts are fun and can be extremely demanding, you’re the customer so you’ll have to make that decision. Logan wont stop hunting, you’ll get up at dark and return at dark if you desire. I highly suggest getting into the saddle before you go on his more demanding hunts. He is very honest and will work with you and your schedule if time is a issue. You can freely talk to Logan about anything. He has great dry ground dogs and is successful. We’ve been out there with him twice and will go again. Plain fun for me.”

“Logan and Josie Anderson run a top notch lion hunting operation. The best part of hunting with them is the hard work that is put into the hunt, lodging and meals. I have hunted and fished from Arizona, Minnesota, Texas, BC Canada and Mexico. I know what customer service and hard work ethic looks like and Logan is right at the top of my favorites.”

 

“Hunting off horseback is truly amazing in this part of Arizona. You’ll see some of Arizona’s grandest beauty and lots of wildlife in the pursuit of a trophy. His dogs are well trained and conditioned for this type of hunting. I plan on hunting lions with Logan many more times in my life and would recommend this to anyone!”
