Delivering some deer up North early this morning and saw a Mountian Lion crawl over a game fence like it was no big deal. He even perched on top for a minute. Incredible agility and awesome tail! First time I have personally seen one, it was incredible! This was on Hwy 83 North of 41 and Garvin's store. Anybody else spotted any in that area before?

Had a lease off 83 between 41 and I-10 years ago. One of the guys on the lease saw one walk between his blind and feeder. I asked him why he didn't shoot it and he said he was stunned in disbelief and by the time he got his wits about him, it was gone.

Wish I could see that. Sounds like an awesome experience. Thought I did in Coleman/Runnels County back in the late '80s, but it was so fast that I couldn't be sure. And lots of time since then.

And delivering deer? Like to the processor?

My wifes uncle was a biologist with TPWD for 30 years and his specialty was Mountain Lions. The knowledge he has about these animals is astounding. I love sitting around the fire and listening to his stories about them.

Roughly, yes.

I bet there are more around than most would believe, had never thought about one going over high fence but as strong and agile as they are I bet that would ne no problem.

That's awesome.

We hunt there and have had family ranching in that area for a very long time.

They are out there. You don't see them often, but they're definitely out there.

I would be torn about shooting one if I saw it, but I think if I did not shoot it the ghosts of all my ranching relatives would come and get me.

My buddy hunts right on the Mason/Llano county line and he has seen a nice one out there. Beautiful country for one to run around in.

How far north of Garvin Store? Lions frequent that area fairly often as there is an abundance of game and more that adequate cover. Near the West Kerr Ranch?
Adios,
Gary
