A buddy has a couple trail cams set out in the country. About a week ago he had 3 lions show up about 1 in the afternoon. We went out Wednsday it was raining to hard to call so we just scouted around. After a bite of lunch it quit raining and very near the cam we ran across 3 sets of fresh lion tracks (since it stopped raining) this one was pretty large. I thought to myself were out numbered and mabe out gunned haha.

That does not look like a lion track to me. Got any other pics?

I would say don't go anywhere unarmed. But I think the better plan is to move.

Looks like a mother with last years cubs. She should be running them off pretty soon.
Nice pics.
I used to see a young male cougar a couple times a month on one of the gas wells that I serviced between Weatherford and Springtown about 6 years ago. He'd walk across the well pad while we were working,and pay us no mind at all.

You realize that the date on the time stamp that the 9 means SEPTEMBER and not October and that we are now in October? Those are pics from last month, not last week, according to the time stamp. As such, the equivocal tracks and pics do not correspond.

Nobody is saying that there aren't cats out there, only that your print doesn't look like a cat print.

Double I said nothing about being a expert I will leave that to you. I was just sharing a pic I thought everyone would enjoy. Then you ask for the cam pics i referenced so I called and ask if he would email them which he obliged. They see cats as well as tracks periodically on the ranch, they dont have any dogs that size and it is about 24 miles to town and there were 3 sets crossing a wash, which were about 3 and 8 feet apart. As to the month I was going by what he said. However I didnt grill him. I do know he had just went and pulled the pics off and there several hundered so im guessing that might be the discrepancy. Either way enjoy the pics.

I don't put much emphasis on game cam dates, not everybody cares about the date. (I never set the date or time on mine.) So was Ranchdog right? Is it Arizona?

DL, don't you know that if you're on the THF that you are automatically a wildlife biologist?

What do you know about mountain lion prints? What is your background and expertise? Not jack squat that's what.

There are hundreds of pictures that get posted without the correct date and time stamps. hammer

DLFant, I bet most folks on the THF first thought this ranch was in Texas. Hang around awhile and you'll see your share of panther posts. Very cool photos.

I was deer hunting in the San Pedro Parks some 30 years ago and sat in some natural cover for the evening hunt. About 30 yards in front of me was an old fallen tree. After awhile a mountain lion came out and went up to the old snag and started catching and eating mice. It looked like a darned house cat playing with a toy.

I hot to enjoy watching it till it started getting dark. I wasn't sure what it would do if I just got up, so I shot a round right into the middle of that snag. I bet that cat is still running to this day, if not just in spirit.

This is a "Texas" hunting forum. The OP's info states "central Texas". He conveniently omitted location in the op and didn't show the pics which are obviously from an area other than Texas.

Personally I don't care where it's from, pictures of lions are always cool. But, with the info provided without the actual cat pics, you can't blame folks for assuming the cats were in Texas.

cheers & thanks for sharing the coolpics... My posts not worth 2cents would have ta agree with posters that say the pic with hand next to print is not a print of Mnt lion... That was my first thought when looking at it, & still is... As pappy once said: every one has opinions, my stinks < rofl that statement tis complicated... Oh, welcome ta THF... Tracks can get distorted, depending apone how old & were found... Even tougher judging by pic... My first though twas a yote track... Thread not about the track, coolpics of the lions in the back yard .... Thanks for sharing... flag
