Ya, it was Mike, myself, Julie, Josh and his girlfriend (I think). Not much to tell though, they ran it up a hill and it back tracked when we tried to cut it off in the mini truck. The dogs lost it in the bottom. We would not have even known it was a lion except that we found tracks.

It was a much less exhilarating experience than the year before when a cat (don't know if it was a bob or a lion) claimed a pig we killed on the same property. That sound made the hair stand up on my back.

One of these days the local bobcat guy will get it, I hope. Thus far, his Trigg hounds have run it a couple of times but have not put it in a tree of bayed it up. Not enough grit or bottom, I guess.

In my experience I'd say it is a bobkitty. Cause lions don't just run and wear out a dog they'll either go up the first tree big enough or stop and fight on the ground whenn they hear the dogs. Bobs on the other hand will do everything to get away from the dogs from running out of the state to making loops on their own tracks then sneaking out leaving the dogs scattered and confused.

:)) Tree where? We don't have trees, just tall shrubs. We have plenty of bobcats and very few lions. Our bobs are small and the tracks are easily distinguished. I assure you that it was not a bob.

This is a big tree and that cat is no more than 30lb and 8 feet off the ground.

I'm talking about whatever it is the triggs can't catch.

I cant really comment on that except to say that Mark knows his bobcats and he hunts the 9K acres next to the place where our dogs picked one up so Ill give it the benefit of the doubt.

Well hell I get on here after Mis told me I needed to and Steve done told the tale! well one of them.

Robert & I ran a Cat one night for a good while that left the dogs confused. We tracked its big a$$ paw prints and really we were glad it out smarted the dogs. Now the dogs probably werent as happy about it but man I would love to really go out and run mountain lions.
That and bear.Those are my dream hunts.

Steve is right about our bobcats down here. They run small and you can pretty much tell the difference in the tracks. Now Mis and the kids flushed a Lion out in front of me one day out at Click. They like to track and were following some tracks down by the private lake. Mis didnt realize how fresh the tracks were. :)) Next thing I know I hear something coming through the brush and it ran right out in front me where there was about a 20yard opening. I tried to get a shot off but that didnt work out. I was still in disbelief over what I had seen. The kids didnt let me live that down for a good while. Later that month a hunter shot that lion a few ranches over.

those are some bada$$ pictures AZ !
