congrats machias...i'm sure you'll keep us in touch with the progress of your hunt.
is it for 1 lion only or do you hunt till the quota is met or how's it work?

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Season opens 1 Dec and runs until 31 Mar 2008.  I am allowed up to 2 lions, but only 1 before 15 Jan.  If the quota of 15 females and or 35 males has not been filled then I can take a second lion after the 15th of Jan.  Once the quota is filled then it is pursuit only till 31 Mar.  All lions taken in Stevens/Pend Oreille from 1 Sep to 30 Nov count towards the quota.  Last year when the hound season opened there were only 8 females left and something like 28 or 29 toms left.  The harvest season was closed a couple of days after Christmas last year with 19 toms still available.  So if guys just hold off and stop shooting sub adult lions be it female or male then guys would have most of the winter to put their tag on a toad.  Most of the cats killed early in the season are young and/or female cats.  I am allowed to take up to three individuals with me on a hunt.

Thanks Michelle, how much would a full body mount run me?  Do you have any photos of your work with cats?  I know I'm getting ahead of myself!!

Standard price is $2,100 for a life size.  That comes with a standard base. 

As of right now I have no pictures of Cats.  Lost most of my pictures in the move.  Most of my experiance is with Bobcats.  Cougar and bobcats are about as equally difficult to make look good.  Thats why I suggest taking lots of pictures of your cat.  That way I can gauge how your cat is built.  I also use plenty of referance photos of live cats.  I use live animal referance photos when mounting any kind of animal....

There probably arent many big cats left up there, seems that everyone is harvesting mainly females and young males, never really any large toms...mainly because they dont have time to establish a home range within the first year they immigrate into the area then they get shot.  I'm sure there are a couple still left up there though.
