Re: mountian lion hunting

I called one in using a fawn distress call. He came in at about the 20 minute mark. Luckily(for him), he saw me first. I bent over to pick up my rifle and he was gone.

Good luck with your hunt,

    Lots of info here:

    mountain lion Wildlife Callers

    These guys (website owners) focus almost exclusively on mountain lion, because of the challenge involved. They use e-callers and typically set up 50-100 yds off the speaker. They do a lot of homework & scouting, so they know they are not wasting their time. They use trail cams, etc. Out west, lions seem to like the "hardpan" washes as travel corridors. Only one in three or four set-ups are successful and do not always ensure a shot. A lion's area is so large, that they come through a targeted wash only once every 3-4 days. It is luck of the draw if you are calling when they are coming through. They prefer a .308 for shooting the big cats because they are so tough. I hope to eventually try it myself, but for now - I am focussing on coyotes & fox (climbing the learning curve). Good luck to you.

    I've had lions come into me closer than I care for callings coyotes with a rabbit distress call. Even had a close encounter while turkey hunting...came into me when I was mimicking a hen.

    those big cats arent really that tough. dont want to get an argument going just off my experience. i nailed one 2 januarys ago that i glassed up while glassing for javelina. shot it at 397 with a 223, i didnt calculate for the wind quite enough and hit liver but it went down within 30 yards. was a 55 grain soft point

    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.
    i agree with this quote....(lion poop) and there is no second chance
