Happy new year guys, just wanted to share a quick story from opening morning . My brother had gone out to do some predator control, with the rain letting up he'd decided to make a stand and had gone with a high pitch hand call our cousin had given to him years ago. Hit the call for 15 seconds stopped for 30, hit it another 15 and before he could grab his rifle had this 100lb lion right on top of him. So mind you he was sitting on his butt when he had started to call so he was in a bad way. Within seconds he saw movement as She was lunging in such stride towards him she was covering 20 feet in each leap. Stopping in such a rush she actually stepped back with amaze at what he might be..they were now starring each other in the eyes for what lasted for about 10 seconds.. just giving him enough time to point and shoot!!.. just hit the safety ..point and shoot.. she was just inches from the end of his barrel. In the pik his shooting sticks hadn't moved, he set his rifle on his right side as he got up. Luckily that was that. and everything ended up ok. I think he might need some new boxers. One less deer killer in the desert, very proud of him for handling the situation like a champ!!
