Seeing more than I did when hunting deer,  a couple of what I would classify as impressive racks one was what I would call super, extra wide and 4 x 4

This one is a little different, but it's something that I've heard of happening repeatedly, so it needs to be covered!

HS Football coach visits friends, they go cat hunting, he runs the stand with his ICOtech and RainShadow sounds.... and he goes 2 for 2 on lion stands (even though he didn't do the shooting!)

No, that isn't 'typical' either!

I told him, someday he'd have the satisfaction of having 30 dry stands in a row... but he's just a beginner, so he can't expect to get to that level immediately!

I will post the story as soon as I get it from the shooter!

Last night while grilling up dinner, the olíman likes to flash light the lower pasture just out of curiosity. We seen eyes in the brush. Moved around super slow looking around. I knew right then it wasnít a deer or coyote. It slowly walked out to the right. I said thatís a fricken cat! Big cat! It slithered along then out of sight. It was pouring down rain, hard to see and if we did get a shot it was in an unsafe direction unfortunately. So thereís cat big cat in the neighborhood. I guess this story is my tag to this thread  :P . Iím excited to get to calling.

Okay, I got a couple of steaks out, 22-250 dusted off and the foxpro charged up. We'll see if we can get lucky at the grill again  :chuckle: .

Just Posted R21. Great story by the young hunter, and great post-shot video by the Coach!

http://www.rain-shadow.com/cougar_callin_stories.htm

Distress and 3 different RainShadow vocals, predominantly "RS S Live Whistles" brought in a young cat. Great story! Lots of fun interacting with these guys over the past couple weeks!

Enjoy!

I've been noticing that the call in story page is getting quite LONG!



One thing I've found that you can do to consume it is to have your computer or device read it to you. That way you can reload, or drive or whatever.



You have to kinda focus to get much out of the robot voice, but it does work.



For the computer, for instance, you go to the page, click where you want to start, and then right click, and then click "Read Aloud" or press Control and Shift and U at the same time.



Just a little life hack!

Here's a cool youtube video of a female cougar caterwaul calling for a mate. This sound is very close to the TT Caterwaul call on my ICOtec call that got a cougar to run down the hill and stand over my call at the 40 minute mark of my stand. I had used many Rainshadow vocals previous to the caterwaul which likely brought it in but the mating call seemed to set off the territorial instincts of the 100 pound female and she charged down the hill. It is interesting to now hear this same sound from a cat on trail cam that successfully calls in a mate.


Here's a 2nd video from the same camera.  Both videos also show the male creating a couple of scrapes.

The snow here has been pretty thin if any at all in the lowlands here on the west side. The first weekend was unsuccessful. Last weekend a buddy and I were hunting separately in the same relative area. I found a set of tracks but it had a cub with it so I carried on. A short while later crossed a set of female tracks in the same exact location as one we found last year that killed an elk nearby, which my buddy tracked and eventually spooked the cat off it's kill. The cat never returned and the carcass rotted until the coyotes found it (we put cameras on it) It's pretty safe to assume it's the same cat since it was the same size paw and stride, following almost the same path it kept taking last year. The tracks from last weekend were chasing deer all over the mountain side. It was raining and the snow was melting fast. The tracks were atleast 12 hours old. We met up and called a stand in that area, but the wind and rain wouldn't allow the sound to travel far. It's been snowing hard here for a couple of days and we will be out in the morning to try to pick up on some tracks again.  Goodluck to you guys!

I'll be out tomorrow looking for tracks in GMU 633. Holding out that we get some more snow tonight. This is the only snow I expect on the west side. Hoping to notch my tag before seasons end.

6-12 hours after a storm is gold for finding tracks. While it's happening is a waste of time.
