Tranqued, tagged and released?

Collared I believe.
:fire.:

" 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

He is fitted with a GPS collar.  This cat is awesome, they don't get much bigger!

Big cat.  I'm a little disappointed.  I'd like to see a different group of guys in that photo.

Up in NE Washington

Another deer eating machine released
Not exactly 'released'... he was already living there and doing his thing.  He probably eats mostly elk.  I suspect this lion has killed wolves, other lions, and coyotes effectively for half a decade.  If you want more deer, a lion like this is helpful.  He probably kills more lions in a year than most hunters will in their lifetime.

What a stud cat!!!
He is extraordinary.  I'm glad he was a gentleman...the dogs wouldn't stand a chance against a cat like this.

Im guessing he would rather hunters who killed it be in the photo?  Which were my thoughts as well, then I read WAcoyotehunter’s response, maybe he’s better alive?

Kertson is a very capable bio.

Also, a top male like that does indeed kill a lot of dispersing juvenile male cougars!

Bart, you got any photos of his track or his stride?  Did he give you much of a run?  Not too many guys have ever treed a cat that big....or ever will....  :)
