Is it legal to bait them in like that? HA!!!

All kidding aside, I'm glad you came out of the encounter OK, and able to tell the story.

Glad everything turned out okay for you. Way to keep a level head. Last week we saw several cat tracks in the area of Colorado we were hunting. We also saw a lot of mule deer, so I'm guessing that's what had them there. It'll definitely make you pay attention to your surroundings.

That could have ended badly. You did the right thing all the way Michael. Glad you didn't get any closer!

Stay sharp, Kenny.

What a rush that must have been! Kept your cool and did what you had to do. I didn't read all the posts - did they let you keep the cat?

Wow!!!

I think your title should read 'Mule Deer Hunt turned into Survival'.

Hahahaha hahahaha...yes it was a frontal shot! The title should read: "Frontal shot saves rookie hunter from stitches"

The lion died about 25 yards from the shot. I'd post a picture of the actual entrance but it looks like a trophy picture with my bow on it and I didn't want it to be perceived as a trophy at all.

Holy smokes, what a rush and deflated moment at the same time. You did what you had to do.

Post the picture of the entrance. You already explained what happened.
