    Thats cool. I've had some really great close encounters with other wild animals while bowhunting. Most of the time, I sit completely undetected even to other predators. This tells me that "we" are the ultimate predator of all. Make sure to post your elk harvest too. Good luck.

    Firing a 40 caliber didn't phase the cat!

    My cousin and I stalked in on another bull about 40yrds away but he saw/winded us before we found him and he was outta' there.

    Lots of chances on deer. My uncle got four seperate opportunities and three different muzzleloader shots off before he was finally able to close the deal and we ended up with some meat in the freezer. We were giving him a lot of crap about being a hack.

    My tag is still valid this week but I'd have to run up somewhere in the crowded front range. And being by myself this week, I don't know how I'd get the thing out of the woods.

    When using scent attractants when hunting, make sure you don't rub Catnip over your clothes to dull your human scent.

    Btw... Very cool pictures.

    This is something I always think about when I call coyotes. The cats like the distressed rabbits as much as the coyotes, but the dogs will run right up on you and let their buddies know too, but the cats will sneak around behind you. Seen a few bobcats that way, but never one of the big ones. I finally got nervous having to keep an eye on the 6 the whole time and decided to sit on top of an old building with a ladder as the only way up (for me or a cat).

    I'm glad things worked out for you. Those cats should not be taken lightly. In defense of the DOW lady, getting out of the blind so that it could see you were human might have sent it running. He may have been trying to figure out what was moving in that funny looking clump of bushes (blind). However, I'm not sure that I would have done things any different. I don't know what your blind is like, but if you have to turn you back on a stalking lion to get out, I think I would stay put too. The DOW lady's advice is the standard speech concerning encounters with mountain lions as well as many other animals. I'll be packing when I go elk hunting.

    Hiking without weapons could have been a real concern. When the cats won't leave after warning shots...I'd be real concerned.
    Interesting pics...

    No doubt it could have caused more problems for me than necessary and I considered withholding that part. But, I felt the fact that the cats weren't put off by gunfire was an important fact and given the situation, even an anti-gunner would have been praying for a and a few warning shots in that situation.

    Tinkerin.....

    I've got a Ruger .44 as well, and the silly thing is HEAVY.

    So, I just HAD to buy one of the Taraus Titanium .44s. That thing weighs less loaded than my Buckmark .22.

    I carry it with the first and maybe second shots loaded with snake shot. I think had you peppered her with a bit of snakeshot, she might have been discouraged

    Good job, but next time you go out there, take a wind-up mouse toy and a ball of string. Kitty looked like she wanted to play!
    I was thinking a poodle on the end of the string.

    Don't think the lion license would have been a problem if you would have wound up in a survival scenario. Thank goodness the kits were just curious and not too curious, sounds like they were getting to that stage. You might have wound up being a new playmate without your consent!

    Beautiful cat by the way!
