He was an old warrior. We started the chase at 9:30am and finished at 4:00pm. He had clearly lost a few battles with a younger Tom but wasn't willing to give it it up easily. His nose was almost tore off and his eye almost tore out. Scares on his shoulders and neck.

Congratulations - a good taxidermist should be able to fix that. For some reason, people don't give cat hunts their due when it comes to level of difficulty. The shooting can be easy, but getting to the tree is another story altogether.

From: Ermine

Damn that's narly. Thats cool! Congrats!

29-Jan-17
I dont want him fixed up. I want him the way he was. Great hunt. Almost 9 miles.

Congrats on a fine trophy.

Any idea of the age?

Congrats Bob! But I have seen much uglier COUGARS in Florida...

30-Jan-17
The Cougars in Florida are far more dangerous too. You better be careful!!!

Wow, looks like he really got a beating. Congrats on the big tom Bob. He is still a great trophy.

30-Jan-17
If I were fortunate enough to shoot one, I could only hope he would look like that. It shows the trials of life it went thru and should be preserved. Thank you for sharing with us.

From: TD
30-Jan-17
wow.

seeing and hearing these feral cats around here scrap..... I could only imagine what something like that would look/sound like.

Did you get any kind of age on him? He might not have been around too much longer. Old warriors just don't have any quit in em.

30-Jan-17
THAT is one UGLY lion. No doubt.

From: GF
30-Jan-17
Just post the pics when you get him back... From the looks of it, his best days were behind him, but (JMO) no need to preserve him in quite such an advanced a state of disrepair... Battle scars are one thing, but that first pic is just plumb unflattering!!!

30-Jan-17
Definitely has "Character". Congrats on a nice, mature cat Bob!

From: willliamtell

If you're not counting antler inches, (and maybe even then) imo character and living marks are what makes an animal distinctive. Like to see the mount - if your taxi captures it you will have a unique head for sure. A warrior meeting an appropriate end.

From: XbowfromNY

Congrats. Not as ugly as the cougars posted on the "booner" thread.

From: APauls

Nice! Ya so does that get scored as a non-typical?

From: Steve H.

My AZ lion looked almost as bad after an arrow to the cranium and getting speared (it was tucked back in a large rock fracture out of straight arrow path--taped my fixed blade knife to a pole).

From: TD
30-Jan-17
I've seen a couple looked like that when they came back from taxi..... that likely didn't look like that going in...... =D

I remember that story Steve...... the both of ya left it all out there on the desert......

From: Brotsky

Congrats Bob! All lions are beautiful to this guy, especially dead ones! Way to go!

Grats Bob. It's a violent world for male predators.

That's just a badass old lion!

I think a taxidermist is going to have a hard time recreating the "ugliness". Unique trophy. Congrats!

From: trkytrack

Wow. Tough time sweet talking the ladies with a face like that. One things for sure....there's one big badass lion still hanging around that place.
