Bucket List Hunt Complete
« on: February 12, 2019, 12:33:33 PM »
Was fortunate enough to harvest this tom last weekend in MT with my hunting partner and childhood best friend. This was the 30th cougar put up by his dog and the first one killed over her and his buddies dog. It's truly amazing watching these dogs and houndsman work. This is their cat, I was just blessed to be invited along and able to execute the shot and put my tag on it. I cant wait to go again.

We also put up a beautiful tom bobcat, just for the dog. The quota was closed so we took pictures and hiked back to the truck. So much fun, I wish we could run dogs in WA.

We did cut a lot of wolf tracks and had to be very cautious where we turned the dogs loose. Luckily no sightings of wolves or issues with them and the dogs.

So awesome! High on my bucket list as well.   Few things more satisfying than watching good dogs work.

That’s a fat cat. Great picture!

He had a fresh kill near by. My buddy found where he had drug a doe mule deer across the road and buried her. We caught him not far from his kill up the mountain.
