Went to New Mexico for a Mountain Lion hunt that started on Monday. Didn't cut a track all day. Tuesday, we cut a really nice track and put dogs on it. They trailed it up and over the hill, we went around to get in front of them, but another outfitter beat us to it and turned their dogs out. Wednesday we cut another track, this one better than the one on Tuesday. Dogs trailed him for about 4 hours then treed him just 30 yards from the road. Here are a couple of pics.

Nice cat!

I hope you left one more lion in NM for me. I'm going to Cimarron on the 25th to hunt the Philmont Scout Ranch with Happ Blacksten. Gonna take my pre-64 Win 94 .30-30. Hopefully, we'll be blessed with a good tracking snow, and I'll get a cat as nice as yours.

Congrats, Carl!

Awesome!
If you don't mind me asking, where in NM and who was the guide. I have a good friend in the Gila that guides. Just curious. That is awesome man. Good job!

Rugby,

We were hunting in the Lincoln National Forest. Killed this one east of Cloudcroft. Was hunting with Joe Troyer, Lil Joes Big Game Hunting. He is from Socorro.
