Twice I have seen lions stalking mule deer bucks at treeline in broad daylight. The belly crawl and everything. One time the bucks (a group of 3) just winded it, snorted, and hopped off. The other time three bucks from a bachelor herd of 15 or so split off and ran straight at the cat, chasing IT off.Sorry I was talking about bear n lion otc. But I Do have a general elk tag this year.
I am surprised to here how many people have seen lion's.
Yeah, but I do understand that we have a very large hunting population here, compared to the game we chase, so I kind of get it. I feel fortunate to be able to chase all 3 species of deer, and 2 species of elk, plus black bear and cougar all over the counter here in Washington though. I see bears and cougars every year, and shoot a deer almost every year, so it could be worse.too bad washington doesnt have the elk and deer modern seasons together huh
