I've been extremely blessed throughout my short life getting to hunt places some will only in magazines. This week I was blessed to travel to Colorado to hunt mountain lion. I choose Colorado simply because I was stationed here 5years ago and just had to get back to its beautiful country. I hunted with cat track outfitters and we hunted hard from 1 am to 5 pm for 4 days trying to cut a track we could run. We saw many females with kittens or old tracks. It came down to my 5th and last day. After well over 2000 miles rode and minimal sleep it happened. I took this beautiful female deep down in a little cut after dropping down into a canyon back up a ridge and dropped in the cut.
Always a little bit of extra excitement on last day success. Congrats on your great cat, Corey! Looking forward to the story.
Congratulations, nice cat.
Very nice indeed
Good luck, Robb
Getting it done on the last day just means you got full use of that tag. Congrats Sir
Thanks everyone here's another picture of her
Congrats on the cat! Fred runs a great outfit and gets the job done!
Well done! Congrats Thanks for sharing
Very nice! Guys that kill a cat on the first day are so cheated! ;). Took me 16 days to kill mine...
Great job and beautiful cat. Congrats!
Congratulations Corey! Still on my bucket list!
Very nice Corey, beautiful lion!
Cool man! Glad to see it all went well, congrats!
Very nice female lion, congratulations. You will remember every day of this hunt for some time. Day 5 was the bonus.
Great hunt! Congratulations! Anyone that says lion hunting is easy hasn’t done much of it!
Take a “trip of a lifetime every year”!!!
Day 5 was good to me back in 83, My buddy was able to film this one with an 8mm camera. A lifetime memory for sure!
Congrats. Totally agree with Kota that you are cheated if you get a first day cat. 2 hunts and 12 days for mine. Wouldn't trade a day of it.
Looks like fun. Thanks for sharing. Congrats!
Wow, that's the biggest female I've ever seen.
I am a houndsman and would love to run one of those. Congratulations, when you shoot a bear or cat with hounds you earned it.
I killed my Elk by noon of opening day one yer.
Absolutely RUINED a perfectly good 10-day vacation.
Honestly, I'd rather go home with a tag in my pocket than have it end too soon.
Big girl, by the way....
As others have stated, that is a large female lion. Nicely done. Five days in the snow, sounds like fun. my best, Paul
Lawdy I agree I killed a bear In main with hounds that place is thick up there but was in first 3 hours of first day kinda wanted to hunt hard, but my cat was rough 4 days no tracks then last day we found her we thought was a tom looking at the track and she went right into a hell hole lol she was earned
Chase the slam, I have never ate it, but others that have say cougar is elegant meat.
I'll find out tomorrow ima cook some back strap up
CONGRATS chasintheslam… The best wild game meat I ever ate was cougar...
Zbone I'm gonna cook some tomorrow excited to try it
Congrats! Sounds like a great hunt
Wow. Nice Cat. Congrats to you- all that hard work payed off!
Cooking cat? Sloooooooooooow cooking. No fat, very lean meat. Do no treat the meat like elk or even other vension.
And bring it up to temperature just like bear.
Yep, huge female....Congrats!! Took my cat on day 14 and wouldn't trade a single one of them.
Congrats on the beautiful lion, hope to hear the story some day!
You are in for a treat. I know some houndsmen that prefer cat to elk meat.
