They finally got some snow in Northern NM and i had bought my lion tag about a week ago so my guide Bobby Tainter (5056925687) called me and said comon so i drove 14 hrs and within 2 hrs out hunting we had this big tom treed. This is the second hunt ive done with him first was for black bear and that hunt only lasted about 4 hrs and i had a bear. He has some of the best dogs around and is an up and comer in the bear and lion hunting industry. WE hunted on the Rio Costilla ranch near Costilla NM, its absolutely beautiful with its highest peaks above 13k elevation we took this lion right at 10k.

That's a big Tom! Last time I went in Montana I was sucking wind so bad I realized those days were over for me. Good job!

I am going to the Mescalero Apache Reservation next week if the weather gives me a break. No snow and dry but if the wind doesn't blow out the scent, I have a chance.
Adios,
Gary

GreT looking cat. I can admit I thought the post was going to be a Tom turkey and I almost passed it by. I am glad I opened it.
