I was mule deer hunting this morning and had a Montain Lion at less than 20yds. He was at least 150lbs or bigger had no clue I existed. I didn't have a tag in my pocket.
It would have been a nice trophy and with no dogs.
How did you screw up?
By not having a tag. Got it Yea you did.

Yeah, that's a situation that doesn't happen every day. You'll always have the memory though. Had to be cool. They are crazy cool to observe up close.
Possession of the corresponding tag is a fail-safe repellent for both lions & bears. So at least you can take solace in knowing you'd have never seen him, had you been carrying the proper license.
Good reminder to the rest of us. Sorry you didn’t get to harvest that deer killer!
Dang the luck Craig.
Hopefully ya got some kool pix though
Good luck, Robb
Awesome you got a good close look at him. That part you will never forget.
sticksender, boy ain't that the truth LOL.
