Wow! Incredible story and pics. Should have got one with the foot in the cats mouth!

Man you are having a crazy cat season.  Guys treeing their own cats, cats biting boots.  I thought our trip was exciting but it was nothing compared to this year.

Thanks for the updates.
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.

I tried to talk Michael an ex-marine from New Jersey out of coming cat hunting, the snow crust is so hard humans can walk on top. He said he couldn’t change plans and hoped the good lord would provide, today was the first day of the hunt, Brian figured on hiking into some good areas and hoping the dogs would strike a fresh track and get a chase going, as luck would have it there was a heavy frost or slight skiff this morning, just enough that you could see some tracks in certain spots. Brian happened to spot something along the road so walked back to check and could faintly make out a good sized lion print, they spent an hour trying to figure out where it went, finally one of the dogs found it and even though it was going into a wolf infested area, the track seemed fresh enough to give it a try. The dogs caught the cat pretty quickly but it was a very steep hard and icy slick climb for the hunters, it took 4 hours to get to the tree, Brian said most hunters would not have made the climb, good think Michael was a tough guy. The good lord was definitely watching over Michael, as a result Michael tagged this big tom, Brian said there was a bright light shining from the heavens for them to even find the track! Proof that miracles do happen, congrats to all involved!

Yeah you never know what can happen.

FYI- This last cat went into the same big area that you tried hiking for that one big tom that we didn't get.

When you said wolf infested I wondered if it was the same spot.  :chuckle:  That was a great area if it weren't for the wolves.  Glad you were able to get the cat and get the dogs out without any run ins with wolves.

Great outcome and beautiful looking cat!
Would love to be a part of a lion hunt someday soon.  Thanks for sharing Dale!
