Lion and dog in the tree
Lion and dog in the tree
I am on my annual bowhunt to Wyoming and took a respectable buck mid week. We got some snow and there were lion tracks all over the valley and near the barn. My friend asked if I wanted to chase the lion and of course I did. We headed to town and bought a NR license. The first day even though we saw lots of tracks the dogs couldn’t get it sorted out. We covered about 8 steep miles of really beautiful country. This morning we had perfect fresh snow. We quickly found a track and turned the dogs loose. The dogs quickly lined out and ran up the ridge. After about 45 minutes they had the lion treed. We worked our way to the dogs and this was what we found.
If you look below the lion you can see one of the dogs way up the tree. We got all the dogs caught and hooked up and I started looking for an angle to get a good arrow into the Tom. I moved to my left and the lion moved a bit and I had a good angle into the bottom of his chest. I was able to put a 200 grain VPA up through the bottom of his chest and he was done in seconds. A very exciting and unexpected bonus to my deer hunt.
Nice! Grats! Got a pic of the buck too?
