As for going in that hole to a growling, gut shot lion, WOW. Capstick wouldn't even trail a wounded cat until he had a shotgun in hand. Way to get it done.

Mountain lion is on my list, but I'm not sure I could do it the way you did!

With that kind of story, PLEASE tell me that you are going to have it mounted.

For some reason I think shooting a mountain lion in Texas, would be equivalent to shooting a 200" buck. Big congrats! Thanks for sharing the story and pics.

Hahaha, man I love seeing all the great responses!

Low fence, yes I had to cut my underwear off and didn't quite plan it to go that way but it worked out. Heck yes, we are full body mounting it....already caped out at Taxi.

Our ranch is off 1024 just passed 9 mile.


Thanks brothers! Glad y'all enjoyed it.

And I forgot to mention the pile of porcupine guys and hide that was near the feeder that morning when my brother climbed in the stand. And the lion had quills all in his front paws when we finally got to him.
