    NV Lion hunting

    I've been "trying" to catch a lion since the snow has been around. I've cut several tracks but seem to be 2 or more days behind the big cats. Thought I'd start up this thread in hopes of giving me some good luck and entertaining a few of you fellas with my trials and tribulations. Hopefully I have some cat pics for you guys soon but tracks is all I have to show.

    Sure are some pretty footprints! Know we need the kill photos! Good luck. Do you use dogs? If so have you ran any yet?

    I do use dogs, walked the first track out with the dogs for miles and ended up to close to the Cali line and pulled off. Seems all these cats moved through this area within a day of each other, I've cut several lion and bobcat tracks in this "top secret" spot. Now just to catch the buggers!

    Just curious, do you know a man by the name of Cal Bryant? Runs hounds somewhere out in Nevada, has had some really awesome pictures of lion on the big game houndman forum.

    I do know Cal, I have one of his pups. Cal does a slam bang job on lions.

    Great job! Always a blast, but even better when the young dogs get rolling like that!
