Incredible. I've heard of it happening before, but I'm sure that is a very rare experience.
Congrats!Thought I would share this! I have been running a trap line this year, and while out and about checking traps, I was seeing a lot of cougar tracks. I purchased an over the counter harvest objective tag for cougar, because well... ya never know.. Last week after checking traps, I thought while I was out, I might try to do a little calling. After setting up, and running the Foxpro for not even a min, To my amazement and total suprise, this cougar come slinking out, putting the sneak on my call!! I had to have set up right on top of her, I shot her at 15yrds away!!! First cougar I have ever gotten, and as far as I know, Kinda like hitting the lottery!!!!
It seems to me that lions, wolves, and 'yotes are very responsive to being called. They have very sensitive hearing.lol yes sir, nine mile unit! I'm going to attribute this cat to dumb *ss luck! Or as your signature says "even a bling squirrel finds a nut once and awhile"
It seems like your lion was stalking your traps.That in and of itself is pretty cool to watch a cat for that long! It very well could have been close to a kill site because the area is full of wintering deer.
BS,It seems like your lion was stalking your traps.
Then the hunter became the hunted.
All in all this was a really great job.
Lions get hungry and will do whatever it takes to get food.BS,
Lions don't hunt people, Nor do they 'stalk' traps.
I bet Karl wins. He knows EVERYTHING!!!!!!oh boy, Karl vs Goofy...this could be the start to something good.
