Here is one I took in Utah day after Christmas 2009. 7' 3" long, and just had him scored at 14 2/8" P&Y. Taken with a 55# Habu at 5 yds.
Never mind on the pic, not sure I have that figured out!

I shot one in Utah the week before Christmas in 2008. Pretty neat Christmas present to myself and a great experience to boot.

Back in 2001, I traveled to Twin Falls Idaho.
Was able to have an awesome adventure - and even harvested this beautiful lion. The hike out was a killer - I was a bit over 1/2 way up the mt on all fours when the guide returned and took the pack with the hide and skull. Even though I wanted to pack it out, I realized there was NO WAY I was in the right shape.
I hope to do it again someday, and be in the right shape to handle those Mts.
I was a tad bit nervous, with the dogs carrying on and the guide telling me it was time to get down to business before the cat bailed - again. He also told me that the hole he would bail out of was the one I had to shoot through!

I even got to meet Mr. Ted Fry on this hunt - an awesome beginning to a trad life!

This winter Tred Barta is coming up to try for a lynx and a lion with his Trad gear from a wheelchair, it should make for some awesome TV. I will keep everyone updated of course.

I'd have to put the big cats on the top 5 American animals that I would love to try! But I think physically it would be TOUGH! Being a flatlander and all!
