    Mt Lion Kill



    Crazy how a cat can kill such big bucks. To bad a hunter couldn't have taken him. Maybe those big bucks should stay by themselves so much and bring some buddy's to hang out with so they can't get snuck up on so easy by a sly cat.

    Ive heard a mature cat will kill a deer a day and only eat the liver. Anyone else heard this?

    A have a good friend who's a biologist specifically with predators. He told me during the hot part of the year they kill 2 deer a week. I do not know about the only eating liver though.

    Cats usually stay on a kill till it's gone or either ran off. They don't sport kill like wolves.

    I heard a mature lion will kill 1 deer a week. Only makes sense they'd get 2 if it's hot. Either way, that's A LOT of deer!

    I doubt it's 1 a day and I also doubt they only eat the liver. If that were the case, there'd be a whole lot less deer on the mountain.

    They also say they kill mature bucks since they can see the antlers above the brush and they use them for leverage.

    I believe they do somewhat "sport kill" when mama is trying to train her kittens for survival. I think then she will kill more than they can eat.

    Thanks for sharing the pic! We have come across numerous cat kills when we are running them. It seems they will usually pick them clean from my experience.

    Same here. I've come acrossed a few also and they are usually buried under brush and picked pretty much clean.
