 I have been following this since it was first reported. At first there was no mention how he killed the cat, and I was thinking, maybe he was carrying a knife or some other such weapon but, then I heard he killed it with bare hands and I thought, very small cat???? well, it wasn't full grown but still around 100 lbs, from what I heard. Just goes to show, how strong the will to survive is. My neighbor said he only killed it because it was so small. I asked him if he had any idea how many people who were killed but a 60 Lbs. pit bull.  Good thing it didn't happen in The peoples republic of Ca. or he would be facing murder charges.

Just for context, I know of a specific case where a mountain lion under a 100 pounds took out a full size Ram that out weighed it by quite a bit. Even a Lion under a 100 can easily drop you. They get you by the back of the neck, you are done. He may gotten his fist jammed downs it mouth and choked it out. Lots of unknowns and lots of guesses. I always carry Bear Mace when running cross country. You never know.

Always keep your head on a swivel. It is not over until you are back at home. Saw 2 Mountain Lions in D 16 during the same week in two different areas in 2017. I had my 30 06 so I was never concerned. Remarkable animals to watch when they have no idea you are watching them. Seen a lot of cool things in the great outdoors. I just don’t want to end up being Felix the Cats dinner.

The carcass of the lion was fed on before the wardens could get to it. Must be a lot of lions on that trail.

A lot of locals up in arms about the cat getting killed.  They want trails closed to joggers/hikers.

 

Me, just another day in CO.

Chuck Norris owes that guy a beer and the secret handshake.

Matt, the big difference is your chicken can get up again after you've choked it ;)


"One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast....a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it's still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this; You will outlive the bastards."

You just have to crush and snort the blue pill, works faster that way...


Give me a bow, a topo and two weeks and I guarantee I kill two weeks!

Just like hunting spots posted online, stupidity is searchable forever.
