I took one on the Colorado, Utah border a few years ago. He was probably 25 ft. up in a tree and (as said before) the hardest thing was that there were dogs barking and people getting in position and telling me "not yet, not yet". Anyway I (fortunately) made a good shot. It was a very exciting hunt!

I finally managed to harvest a nice tom just last december. Get in shape, practice shooting uphill at a steep angle, and last, have patience!

Shot one in Utah early 90s with a Bighorn recurve and one in Colorado with a Robertson longbow, The Colorado hunt was with Lyle Wilmarth 2002 and finished my big eight in Colorado, a personal goal.

I got a nice tom after chasing them for 3 years. I got up on several smaller lions but just took photos. I held out for a bigger one. We put on MANY miles in deep snow throughout those years. Finally got a big tom, but he missed the book by 1/8". That was OK, just wanted to get a nice one. Had it mounted on a ledge, similar to the mouth of a cave. He is stretched out about to eat a grouse under his left paw, with feathers on his whiskers. Several other bones around him, like this is his place to rest and eat.

That sounds like an awsome mount! Do you have a picture of it?
