Here is the update.
yesterday i went deer huntin on opening day. I saw 1 doe and 3 mountain lions. Today i went to walmart to get a tag. Today me and my daughter went deer hunting. I saw another mountain lion in the same place as yesterday. it was about 250 yards away and laying on a rock staring at me and my daughter. I pulled out the .06 and looked at it thru the scope. Al
l i had was a face shot. I could not do it and ruin the hide. I whistled, yelled, used an air horn, barked and made every noise i could to get it to stand up. I sent michelle up the mountain beside me to get it to move(she was safe) and it stayed there. I told her to come down and i was going to try something else. As she walked down to me the cougar was moving away. I took a really sharp quartering away shot and heard the bullet hit. As soon as the bullet hit it it screamed. really cool sound and i may have peed a little. I did not have my pistol so i called Al to bring a pistol and help me. We followed a blood trail till dark. No cougar yet. I will be back in the AM to hopefully recover. I bet it will cost a bunch to get a good mount. Hopefully pictures to follow. Wish me luck!
