    This maybe a dumb question but when you say this is one of the cats we caught, what exactly do you mean? Were you just running the dogs for fun or trapping or someone shot it? Like I said maybe a dumb question. One day I think that would be an awesome hunt, even my wife wants to get one of them!

    Between me and the guys I run with we have caught 25 cats with our dogs. Only have killed 3. There's a lot more to it than just turning dogs loose to catch them. We have wolves to worry about. I probably have spent $3000-$4000 just in fuel this year trying to find cats.

    Yeah I know it's not easy, and I have been told the dogs make the hunt by watching them do their work. It sounds like it's pretty addicting.

    Great pics! Thanks for sharing! I am still trying to get mine. Lots of miles looking for track and alot of miles on foot following tracks. Hopefully it will happen this year. Congrats on all the success!

    That Tom looks pretty pumpkin headed! Good looking cat, I've been wearing out boot leather trying to get a lion going. Wish we had some snow, congrats!

    Nice. I don't think there's a more interesting piece of North American taxidermy than a full body cougar mount. And, running to catch up to an excited pack of dogs, seeing a live mountain lion treed above your head and putting an arrow through it, sounds like a really exciting hunt.

    I'll really have to save my pennies though - between the hunt (which I know is expensive because of the cost of buying, keeping and training dogs, fuel, etc) and the cost of a full-body mount, it's pretty rich.
