Default Lions at my feeder.....

So, I'm bored at work and decided to delete some photos off my phone from uploading trail cam pics this past weekend. Boy did I get a surprise! I had a lion on camera about 4 years ago and this is the first one since then. Not 1, not 2, but 3 cats. There's one at the front right leg of the feeder with his back to the camera.

I've got lots of deer and hog pics, but no big bucks as in the past. The date is obviously wrong. This is the camera that the date changed for some reason.

I have no desire to hunt them with dogs, but if I could get one either by just being in the right place at the right time or with a Fox Pro.....I'd rather that than a huge buck!

Iíve always thought about the mouflon sheep and Spanish goats running around the lease would be easy prey. Weíve just about killed them all off so now they may be moving to the feeders looking for dinner.

It appears your cats are vegetarians and eating corn!! Probably liberal cats from the Austin area.

Good luck getting a shot at one of them.

Talk about a predator hunters dream. If I had one of those come slinking out into the open and the biggest buck I'd ever seen was standing there I believe that buck would live out the remainder of his days without fear of being attacked and eatin. I'd just have an expensive mount to pay for afterwards.

That's awesome. I hunt in Terrell County between Sheffield and Sanderson. Always wanted to get a pic of a lion or see 1 in person. The ranch that borders us, their hunters have killed 3 over the past 8-10 years
