I actually like mountain lions and regularly let females small toms go in Idaho where cats are hunted to death so I am not against lions at all. Washington is just completely over run with them and every other predator you need hounds back! I think that is the one thing hunt wa could get behind as a group to help your deer and elk

Couldn't agree more. If people were to run cats or bears with dogs or use baits. You could let the younger predators/females. You could actually take a big Tom or big bore. The elk/deer would strive back to the population it was 25+ years.
  Just my  :twocents:

 :tup:you could be the guy to push for hound hunting I think this forum could be the place hunters come together to get houndoggers back controlling predators the right way. I will have your back on this but being a non resident makes my voice less important I think. I read posts all the time complaining about the predator pit in Washington and I totally agree but hunt wa needs to take a stand TOGETHER and hounds would be the best first step bring back hounds! And include Idaho guys ha ha

I know the guy who watched this one get killed by a cougar. He is still up there in one of my favorite draws. Horns rotting away.
Leave No Trace!

Too bad you have to leave the horns to rot wonder why wdfw thinks lions aren't a problem seems like lots of evidence to the contrary
