Tough to tell without getting a better look.  I tend to guess lighter than they usually are.

 :tup:thanks for the replies guys I decided to remove and I can start another thread didnít want to derail this one. I never weighed this cat but had three or four friends I showed the cat to whole and got anywhere from 140 to 180 ha ha . I wish I would have gotten him on a scale because he was really fat he had a layer of fat on him like I have never seen on another lion. Anyways my guess was 150 I think most mature toms look like they are 170 but most that are taken in Idaho seem to average 130 maybe 140 not average lion but the mature toms. Thatís what makes the 196 lion so special a real rarity where I hunt

The article said the estimated age of the cat was 9 years old.  When is a cougar in his prime?

yep^ everything about them is awesome.  I would rather see a lion like this than a 200" deer. To me, cougars are the ultimate big game animal and my favorite to pursue

" 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

Cool video. Not how I would have imagined it.
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.
