I'd love to tell you guys it was expertise in tracking, stalking and/or a killer long range shot that bagged this kitty, however in the end it was mostly luck. My dad and I were long range testing the +P out in the national forest and were driving back when we spotted the tom at about 300 yards from the truck. We stopped, wrestled the +P from the hard case in the back of the truck, got ammo form the extra cab, got a rest and shot it. It is the only cougar I have seen in the daylight that wasn't up a tree with dogs, so that was pretty cool after all the hours I have spent in the woods. My decision to pack it down and out the bottom of the canyon, instead of back up to the truck might not have been the wisest as it turned out to be a little over a mile to truck access. I am fairly confident that this is the first 338 Edge +P cougar kill though.
