    3S Tag, LOL

    I had a cat come into a cow elk call in Colorado. The thing stalked around on me for about 15 minutes. I finally got it to turn around at about 35yds. He had about 5 more yards before I was going to sling an arrow at him, and punch my 3S tag

    Wouldn't that been righteous ? Friends I hunt with in Az. always have lion tags with them, in case of an opportunity ... The last time I have seen any lions was in Ut. about 5 yrs. ago. Watched a mom and baby working their way up the canyon towards me. I never shot at them because of the youngin. The rancher got pizzed that I didn't

    Years ago my uncle and his friend were archery hunting elk in CO. They were set up doing some cow calling when a mtn. lion came in to the call very fast. They let him get as close as they felt comfortable with and he still didn't stop, so they shot him and killed him. They made the mistake of sharing the story with a local they knew, who shared it with the fish and game. They left the cat but both took a claw. Within a week some guys showed up from fish and game to his house, in KS, to reclaim the claw. Nothing else happpened, but I guess they needed the shovel, and shut up part of the tag also.

    When it happened to me, the worst part was the cat didn't run off, it just slinked back into the woodline. I thought it was going to try another angle on me, so I decided discretion was the better part of valor and abandoned my makeshift blind at the waterhole for a glassing spot that would make sneaking up on me much more difficult.

    In hindsight, I probably should have shot earlier because I am not sure there was much I was going to be able to do once he was inside 35yds with only a bow, and wrestling a lion doesn't seem like fun.

    Remember you guys, like the big cat trainer said ( and I didn't remember) don't turn your back on a cat.Keep an eye out behind you... I was talking with Sawfish yesterday about X10,X9A and X12 and remembered and encounter of sorts in X9A 2006. A friend and I were riding our quads up McGee Mtn. We had passed some doe's on one of the switchbacks. The next switch back two mtn. lions came from the uphill side of me , across the road running down hill in the direction of the deer. They were sub adult size. I think I ruined their stalk on those deer I passed. I thought ha ha too bad ! I have a friend in Ut. who's bother was riding a quad and a deer went flying right in front of him and he slammed on the brakes and a couple seconds later a mtn. lion came off the upside of the hill and plowed right into him and knocked him off the quad ! The lion got up and continued down the hill towards the deer. I don't think he's lying to me. He's not a BS'er. That would of freaked the heck out of me.
