This will be my first year and my hounds first year hunting lions. we have done good in the past on bobs though and I got a friend thats got some good lion hounds so he is going to let us tag along this year. I would not consider shooting one with any thing other then my long bow.

Mine was about 12 feet up. Not much of a hunt. Been in on two others. (Friends) Didn't work up a sweat on any of them. Luck of the draw I guess. Hope you have a great hunt tho!

I killed a nice lion a couple of years ago on the Colorado/Utah border. I really enjoyed it but really the best part of the hunt was the chase and the excitement that came with it. The shot was somewhat difficult but a little anti-climatic. I'm glad I got my lion and I would love to go on another lion trip (for the chase) but I don't have any desire to kill a second one. I'll have my mount back in a couple of months and it will look great in our home.

I'm super pumped. We are going next February to Korell Outfitters in Idaho. I did end up killing a deer with my recurve this year and will be practicing really hard and working out right up until this hunt. This is a hunt of a lifetime for me. I've killed a bunch of bears, deer, and turkeys but a lion, to me, is the king of north american big game.

This post comes back every year and I never get tired of it. Every time I think about lion hunting Walt Francis and his cat come to mind. Now that is a cat. Good luck and be sure you get in shape.

Be prepared for anything. I shot mine about 15ft up and about 10 yards from base of tree. I've had them close enough you could jump up and grab their tail to way the hell up there where you would be hard pressed to thread a bullet through much less an arrow. In the country we hunt most the lions we tree are about 15 to 25 ft up and 10 to 15 yards from the base and most of them open enough to get a good shot through.You can't be in too good of shape.Enjoy the hunt and remember the hunt is about the dogs and the country- a lion is just icing on the cake. let me know if I can be of any help.

There are some nice cats posted here. I used to run dogs for bobcats and cougars in Oregon. It is certainly all about the dogs. Usually not much to the shooting part. However, hunting big cats in the snow is a lot of fun and a great experience, particularly if you do it with friends and family.
