Nice cat big for a female. I shot one in 2005 that was just shy of 7 foot and weighed 125 pounds, and a buddy shot one that weighed 137 pounds. Both were big females but yours takes the cake. congrats

if thats a accurate weight that would be super huge for a female.like record breaking weight.so good job if it is. average female is 80-90 pounds for adult cats. upper 140s is average weight for a big mature tom 4 years or older. i have treed hundreds of lions and weighed over 150 live cats on cougar studys. the cats are weighed when still alive after being darted to be fitted for tracking collar. biggest female i have weighed was 117 and she had kittens a short time later. have heard of a 121 also in this state, but also had kittens shortly later.good job and nice looking cat

Nice job! I saw a TON of cat sign in the 346 last week.

Not possible, there is only 2000 cats in the whole state.  That means there cannot be a ton in one area.   :chuckle:
That was a ton of cat SIGN, not cats......
1 less so now there are 1999.........

The cat is 100% female, final official weight is 146 pounds. Nice to know there will be 50 more deer and elk a year in Carbanado!

 :yeah:

Nice job 6x6!

Gawd I'd love to kill me a cat like that one!  146 pounds is huge for a female lion in the northwest. Wow! Nice.

Catdog or any of you...what are the biggest Toms you have weighed?

I've seen a few on the scale myself. We've only weighed a couple females, didn't kill the others... one was 110# and 11 yrs old, the other was 6 yrs old and 95#...

Toms we've weighed (50-60??) are in the 110-186# range.. with anything over 155 being the exception...

while 148 for a feemale is large its not uncomen records dont have anything to do with weight its all about the skull size a 148 femanle might have just eaten and after three or four days of not eating you could be lookin at a 130 so congrats its a dead kitty and a nice one but its not breaking any records

186lbs is the biggest ever that I've seen.  Another 160lb.  Very few in the 150's, but several in the 140s.  Avg male lion in my opinon, 120lbs.  Avg female lion, 80lbs.  Any male lion 145lbs and above is an exceptional lion in WA and any female over 90lbs is a damn nice female.  I feel that the lions that are feeding on elk are prone to weigh more also.

Mt muley youv'e definitely got your facts straight, including the elk feeders seem to be bigger.   Had two lions now people brought over and showed me their female that were toms.  One was even sexed by a supposed expert lion hunter and he mis sexed it.  Toms balls are about the size of a peanut (the edible part) and you have to dig into the fur to find them with no hanging sack for sure, just very small little lump you can't see , just have to feel.    Seldom is a female over 110 and toms don't get much over 140 in areas they only feed on deer.
