Re: Anyone know anything about mnt lion trapping?
The best I can do is offer the advise given to me by an ol' timer about trapping The cougar. He said it works best on the polar bear but will work on anything really. You need an icy spot, which can be challenging this time of year. You cut a hole in the ice and line it with peas. When that big nasty cat comes up to take a pea, you sneak up and kick him in the ice hole!
Walla Job Done!
If that does not work, I would agree that holding a lion is tough. They can be snared, but you will kill the lion or neighborhood dogs. Hanging a largish bird wing on a type of swivel works great as an attractor. You can use a (frozen cottontails for bobcats accidently catch them) hot weather resistant cottontail rabbit impression LOADED WITH CATNIP!
For some reason the cat nip makes them loose their cautious keen senses. It can even be used on a well traveled trail to keep them around, they love it!
Best of luck.If the trapping gig fails, turn out the hounds, tree that bastard then step back 600 paces, long range shoot the Murdering dog eating beast, and be done with it!
Ya gotta be tough when yer dumb!
