Hope this is ok for this thread.

I found some fresh lion tracks today. I followed what I could till I found an area where I could call and still kinda see( everything was super thick and steep!) I found a good spot to hide and pull out my e caller..............dead! Won't even turn on. So I pull out couple hand calls and try to tuck in the brush a little more and start with fawn distress pausing every 30 sec or so to listen.  After a bit I hear a whistle about 150 yards up the hill, Then another one about 200 yards to my right. They talk back and forth a a few times with the second one getting a little closer. Then I do another set and I hear one last whistle so I do it back best I can with my voice. All quiet! After a few mins I hear this gargley cough sound just fifty yards away. I scan the area with just my eyes but just couldn't see in that area(thick firs) I sat there for a long time still as death but after a while I heard something leaving. 

Any tips how this could have played out better? What did I do right and should I do diffrent to change the next hunt. I know snow would help me see better but after last winter I think I need to learn to hunt these cats with or with out snow. Thanks for any advise you can offer

Yes, absolutely............. CHARGE YOUR CALLER!!!!

Great call-in! Probably 2ish year old littermates, or grown young with Mamma still hunting together. Would love this story on my website, did you take any pics of the spot?

caller is all good with fresh battery's!!!! I wish I had taken a pic of the location. I did take a pic of the track. After wards I kicked my self for not taking a pic as I went over the hunt walking out. I did mark it on my gps and earlier in the year I found tracks down the mountian  lower.  For now on I will.   Last year I found deer bones scattered all over this mountian! I'll be hunting it again in the future.

Your welcome to use the story

Here's one where I called the cat in, but never saw it. I got a vocal response and sat for a long time throwing the kitchen sink at it, but nothing. This video was with a little digital camera right there on stand. The cat was very likely within rifle range as I took this video, but probably knew I was there.

Finally starting to work with some of my video footage, learning to stack together and edit and stuff. This isn't great, but it's a good start!



Some Call-In stories re-told...







Didn't recount this one.......... but you might like it even better!!!

Actual video footage, before, during, and after, taking a foothill neighborhood "problem cat!" Actual footage! Real time! No edits!




Here's one where I called the cat in, but never saw it. I got a vocal response and sat for a long time throwing the kitchen sink at it, but nothing. This video was with a little digital camera right there on stand. The cat was very likely within rifle range as I took this video, but probably knew I was there.




5 total videos... so far... still working on this!


Here's one about the infamous "Cougar Scratch" or "Pile" or "Mound"...
