This was on my friend's ranch.  Haven't seen much sign the last couple years on that particular ranch though.  Some years the tracks are all over especially around the water troughs.

Thanks for sharing all your information, it has been very helpful to my many failures in this area, knowing what I'm doing wrong.  Seeing the set ups you do on video and you explaining your tactics is very helpful.  The two cats that I have not been successful getting have both come in from downhill from me and I was set up facing uphill.   :bash:  I guess you just never know.

thats interesting. I have only ever had one cougar approach from down hill and it was while I was talking to 2 cats above me. It came from below but went around and came back on same level as me.

He Kinda' makes the case that if you focus on lion calling that success is available, doesn't it? 

I have found success in what I have focused on in the past and have met Steve and just need to "get my mind right."   Getting my "mind right" once you have kids combined with when you have the nut cracked in other hunting endeavors seems to work out better in theory than in practice though for this hombre'.

I know damn well that I can be in a position to take another really nice black tail, I know that I will shoot a lot of pheasants, I know that I will shoot a lot of rockchucks and I could give up one or the other and be a cougar killing machine, year in, year out, using Steve's guidance, but so far the commitment I want to happen... just hasn't happened... yet.
