We had passed some doe's on one of the switchbacks. The next switch back two mtn. lions came from the uphill side of me , across the road running down hill in the direction of the deer. They were sub adult size. I think I ruined their stalk on those deer I passed. I thought ha ha too bad ! I have a friend in Ut. who's bother was riding a quad and a deer went flying right in front of him and he slammed on the brakes and a couple seconds later a mtn. lion came off the upside of the hill and plowed right into him and knocked him off the quad ! The lion got up and continued down the hill towards the deer. I don't think he's lying to me. He's not a BS'er. That would of freaked the heck out of me.
    LOL, What a story about the lion knocking him off. Thats probley worse odds than winning the lotto.

    Lol ! Might be right ! His brother told me the same story and then some when they packed me in with all their mules on a Ut, Book Cliffs Roadless elk hunt in 2009. I believe him even more than his bro and his friend that was with him was with us there too. He said no bs also. I don't think anybody would believe me ! Nobody believed me about the one on my back biting my neck but my best friend was there to verify !

    I was first successful in calling mountain lions unaware in archery season. I was using calf elk calls by hand. Later I as successful calling them with wounded rabbit coyote calls by hand and recorded tape audio. If you are going to be calling I would highly suggest that you learn the sounds that lions make and it is not the lion scream in the movies that I hear in the woods. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6mUvMu7trj8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZxX2jgkEUs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hM2Sw8dsMDQ I have heard these many times in the woods and been stalked both day and night alone. I have had two near deadly encounters with my children along. Be careful my be a silly thing to say but please do.

    While driving to my bow hunting area I spotted 3 mt. lions in the road right in front of me. It was only a short distance from where I park. Some other hunters drove up and I told them about the lions. They said they had seen the tracks in the road. About half hour later, while hiking into my hunting area, I heard a shot. The fallowing weekend I ran into one of them and he said they had shot one of the lions after talking with me. It came to a cow elk call and was only 40 yards from the caller, at a run, when it was shot. 100 lb. male. I have had 2 bears come in while calling for turkey.
