Holy smokes! 101 is still open and I bumped into a guy saying hes got a big cougar hanging around his place. Should be a doozy of a hike in on snowshoes to the back side of where he thinks the cougars home is in the rocks but I plan to be in there tomorrow around 7-7:30. We still have snow so hopefully I can cut some tracks and get the call going.
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Amen

I should know not to trust people. Hiked quite a few miles and only cut dog tracks. Found a good perch to call from and had the call down below in a tree and managed to get 3 dogs really riled up. They have to be his as theres no one else for miles and miles in that spot. No coyotes even howled when I tried some coyote calling back there. I did scare 3 does and a buck came along 5 minutes later, no antlers, grunting, nose to the snow following their tracks. That was pretty cool.

Well, a friend who has never hunted anything wants to give it a shot.  So april 1st we will start hunting lions in 101.  Going to do the hunter ed deferral for him.  2 sets of eyes will double the odds of getting a cat down if one comes in i guess.  Will be pretty crazy if his first kill is a close range lion.  Id rather see him get one than get one myself.

I work at a hospital, non clinical, and have suddenly found myself working long shifts and off hours. I'll probably have to eat my first ever tag from 2019. I let my wife know that I'm going to be hunting extensively in 2020 and cougar hunting was going to get the attention it needs. I really want to be a good citizen notch a few tags this coming decade.

So many guys have asked me about callers and what would be a good unit for a budget, so I thought I'd just mention that today (March 20, 2020 3:15pm) I got an email from gander outdoors saying they had a sale on the FP Banshee for something like $207. That's pretty good...

Not doing so hot in 101 so far.  Think tomorrow i may head to an area in 113 that i know is loaded with deer this time of year, see if my luck changes.  Made 10 calling attempts so far this month.
