    Mountain Lion Encounter

    Had a very close call with a Mountain Lion while archery mule deer hunting a few days ago. I had just left my bow behind for reasons I explain in my blog post. Never go without a side arm. Definitely one of the scariest 3 minutes of my life.

    Read my story and check out the pictures of the site at my blog here: Mountain Lion Encounter

    Do any of you have any good Mountain Lion Encounter stories where it was more then just a sighting?

    Pretty wild.

    You just reassured my reason for packing a side arm.

    I always carry my side arm. I've encountered a couple mountain lions while I was shed hunting by myself.. Then just yesterday while elk hunting I got charged my a longhorn. I was very happy to have my .41 then!

    Great story.

    It would be nice to carry. In the great state of CA it is illegal to carry a weapon during archery season.

    What a creepy story.. I hope I never have an encounter.

    Also, what's not illegal in CA?
