Lion
: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

German Shepard....  :chuckle: wife saw one down by St. Helens a couple years ago and made the statement I just saw a cougar, or a German Shepherd with a long smooth tail just jumped up on a log!....  I believe she saw a cougar!!

My 18th month-old girl saw that first picture and said, "Kitty kitty kitty kitty kitty."  So, there's your answer. :)   :chuckle: :chuckle:

Yes its a cat, cougar, mountain lion(whatever your term is) I have seen a bunch in the Methow over the last 5 years, these things are deer killers. I know a lot of people are worried about wolves(which we as hunters should be) but I,ll tell ya, these things are killing a TON of deer folks,  they are machines as far as picking off deer( 1 per week, per cat!), found over 20 half buried kills in a couple areas in the Methow this last hunting season. Not good, they are wiping out that herd and have been for 20 years plus... :twocents:

thanks guys !

i know that it's a lion.

i visit other forums in the southeast that are just confirming lions .  every now and then someone posts a pic claiming it's a lion but is clearly a tabby cat.  knowing that folks here know the difference was curious as to responses.  the one pic where the cat is going away would be instantly dismissed as a domestic down south.  just a fun comparison of local knowledge.
