Re: mountian lion hunting

I personally know of two different occasions when Elk hunting that the hunters were resting, mid day, and cow calling now and then, only to look up and find a Mountain Lion also looking for lunch.
The problem with calling Mountain Lions is that they usually are very careful and slow with their approach, so if you do not see them coming in you could become Lion poop.

Re: mountian lion hunting

Animal distress calls and calf elk calls work great for calling them although I would never do it myself. As was previously stated they are a very skilled stalker. Cougars are highly skilled predator. Most succesful ways to hunt them are with dogs first and formost and if you live in a state that does not allow dogs then to cut some fresh tracks and chase them. Calling them into you is not a very safe way to hunt it gives them an advantage, better to not let them now or to scare the crap out of them with dogs.

Re: mountian lion hunting

yes, I have called in 3 now, not to mention numerous bear.

deer distress, mtn. lion squalls, elk calf, elk cow, etc.

e-calls work great if legal in your state. most cats and bears take a long while and e-callers are a huge benefit unless you were in the band and have huge lungs :-)


great way to learn more is listen to this...
