We should all put as much time into hunting predators as we do hunting deer & elk.

I ram into a couple guys years ago near Ellensburg that claimed every time it snowed, they jumped on snow mobiles and ram around looking for tracks. When they found a fresh cat track, they would walk it out. They claimed to have killed five lions in the last three years.




 :yeah: Iím to the point now I actually enjoy the predator hunting more than deer and elk. I think itís part of our culture where most everyone started out hunting deer and elk-we can easily just stay focused on that. You can pretty much hunt year round in Idaho once you add predators to the menu. I would think Washington could be a predator hunting honey hole. Nice job on the cat hunter399!

Iíve always wanted to try this. I think it could be fairly effective as long as you were able to get on a fresh track and in good enough shape to cover the ground.
Iíve also thought about doing this but also throwing my foxpro in my backpack with the ďbaying houndsĒ sound playing full volume.

population density.  More predators than prey maybe.   Hopefully more predators in your future hunts.  Congrats again

I know the men you speak of...they were telling the truth.

They'll line out cross country until they think you're close, so wait until they're doing the double backs and stuff, trying to lose you, then you know they're right there! Switch the hound sounds on and RUN the tracks!
