When the local whitetail run from the creek bottom to the center of alfalfa field and blow and stomp we know a cougar is in the area. So my wife loads the Mossberg 500 with 00 buck and walks down the fence line that borders the creek bottom with heavy vegetation. She feels funny and looks behind her into the face of a lion not 22' from her. Kaboom and down goes cat. She measured 7' in length and weighed just shy on 90#. It was day five of the season that runs through March 31 2018.
I better get me a lion tag tomorrow when we check this one in with F&G.

I sent Jonathan a couple pictures, maybe he will post them if he has some spare time.

And a damn nice cat it is! Very cool and rare to find without running dogs.

John would you say that is a younger cat or do females run about that size?

Congrats to the lady.   A local wildlife guy says cougars kill one deer every 7-10 days.

Smokin' Joe,

Our local taxidermist said she is an average female for this area and figures she is 3 1/2 years old.

If she is average, she's bigger than the ones we have here. The female panthers here only go about 65-90 lbs. I think most are in the 75 lb. range. Our males top out at about 150 but are usually less.

Never ate any and never will! Some really like it and the taxidermist phoned a friend that does, so it will end up on his table.

This was the first cat recorded by local F&G this season.

My wife and I both thank you for your input.
