First and foremost. I received permission from the owner of LSTO, Trent to post these pics prior to this post. If you have been on his ranch and as of most recent you will know what game animals he has on his huge spread in west Texas.

I also know there was a heated discussion on kill or no kill lions. These 3 were all killed within the last few days. 2 on Sunday and one today. Trent has 200 inch deer inside his 5,000 acre high fence where these cats were killed. He also has axis, oryx, black buck, elk etc etc.

I hope you can figure dollar investments into his ranch. Oh in case you wonder it’s just 5,000 acres of HF he also has about another 20,000 acres that he and his brother own surrounding the HF. Livestock, wt, mule deer, turkeys are also in the LF area. As of now there is at least one more lion out and about.

It is open to discussion and hope it doesn’t go sideways. Enjoy.

Those 2 cats could wipe out a lot of profit over night.

Might want to go and get Mama. She will most likely be going back into estrus soon since her kittens were killed. Judging by the weight and the spots, they are probably in the 5 to 6 month range.

I drew the Sierra Diablo mule deer hunt years ago and got to see the enclosure the state built to re-introduce Bighorns. The biologist called it the Velociraptor cage. It was impressive what they needed to keep lions out. It was also impressive what a government agency can have done when we're paying for it. grin

A lot like pork, sweet white meat. Funky smell while cooking but they taste great .

Saved some animals in the pens, mamma may have moved on or still be in area. Get her out too.

Looks like a bunch of snares on the ATV in the first pic. That would be my guess.
