Life Long Dream
I know some don’t think it’s Sporting but I’ve always wanted since I was a kid to go on a Lion hunt ! Dang, it was more fun and more demanding than I would have ever though ! A dream come true
I was Hunting with Alan Bennett Of Pinnacle Outfitters , I used a Mathews Halon, 300 spined Victory VAP Arrows and a 100 grain Rage Broadhead at 58 pounds and a total arrow weight of 515 grains !
Congrats Ron, your coyotes are missing you.
What an experience! Congrats Ron!
Congrats! Glad it was what dreams are made of for ya!!!
Congrats buddy. It is a very demanding hunt.,
Congrats, truly a dream hunt.
"I know some don’t think it’s Sporting...."
Then some need to re-evaluate their thoughts.
Congratulations to you and Bill. Beautiful animals.
"Beautiful animals" plural....who else was along on this one?
Ron, congratulations that is a beautiful cat and I know you were pleased to get it. Have you ever had a more strenuous hunt? From what I read they inhabit some pretty rough country.
Thanks everyone !
Bill Morton was with me on this trip !
Both Cats were Bowkill and each taken with 1 arrow !
Dave, was a much harder hunt thn I anticipated ! I passed up 2 Lions before killing on the 4th day ! Bill killed the 1st day. Was a very steep and strenuous climb for Bill, he wasn’t able to go with me when the dogs treed my Lion ! Was over a mile to the lion ( gps) and crusty snow over our boots ! I fell 3 times that day, 2 times going to the Lion . Then a mile back, was 1 of the Top 3-4 trips I was ever on ! Between our Outfitter, Dogs , Bill, seeing and treeing 3 lions in 4 days ! Just an absolute Awesome Trip ! Alan also offers Bowhunts for color phase black bear, and bowhunts for elk ! Alan Bennett Pinnacle Outfitters A West Virginia boy too !

Congrats Ron. Beautiful animal. Worthy of a full body mount. And that last pic of the arrow hitting the cat is awesome!
Great hunt and great pics. Truly awesome.
