Got to spend some time over the holidays with my future brother in laws in Utah chasing cats. Hauling my camera up and down some nasty icy, snowy canyons made it really interesting but getting pics like this made it worth it. We treed this guy on the edge of a 300 foot sheer dropoff. I actually had it in my mind that if I started to slip I was going to have to toss my camera gear so I had both hands free to stop. Luckily, I stayed upright and made it back safely.

Dang! That's an amazing pic. I have to admit that I'd be pretty wary of shooting anything but a rifle at him. Certainly not a camera. Kudos on a great pic.

Just this one Kevin. Not a big cat by any means but to do it with archery gear in sub zero weather with my future brother in laws in one hell hole of a canyon made it special. You can see how gnarly the canyon was in the background. Hike out was torture.

On a side note...this is also what happens when you start a hike with a 300mm with a 1.4x converter attached...you pray that somebody else has a camera that zooms for the LDP.
