My Friend Jim was hunting his brothers low-fenced 5,000 acre ranch in Webb county this last weekend. His brother leases the whole pasture for himself but lets guests shoot an occasional cull deer. Jim was in the stand with the biologist that lives on the property.
They were glassing senderos, the biologist was on the right looking down a sendero, Jim was on the left looking straight ahead and to the left. These senderos are cut like spokes on a wheel. They were watching some deer when all of a sudden they bolted. The biologist say's, "Mountain lion", and he swung around to see him slip in the brush. Then out the next sendero. That's when the hammer came down
Light was fading fast and they didn't have a spotlight, biologist ran back to the truck and got one. They found him piled up in the brush. He said it was pretty spooky walking in after a wounded cat in the brush. Once in a lifetime deal, for sure. He's getting a full body mount. The cat weighed 130lbs. They cut it's stomach open and it was empty. This cat was known to frequent the neighboring ranch...Thanks for posting pic, Curly...Curly is my resident THF I.T. guru.
Life is too short, as is. Don't chance it.
