Montana lion

Recommended Posts

Got lucky and drew one of the 22 trophy lion tags in my unit. A friend of mine had the dogs. Hunting in 3 ft of snow made it a real challenge but super fun. Big Tom weighed in at 157 lbs and was 8 ft 5 inches long. Super excited to take a cat like this.

Didnt see any wolves but they were close. A pack was seen in the drainage where we got the cat a couple days before. Dog owner was worried about wolves killing his dogs.

Congrats!  Man that guy looks bigger than 157 to me.  He’s a tank for sure!

Congrats, nice lion.  He is a tank!

Not too many cats will go over 150 on a scale.  The reason he looks heavier than that is that all the other cats you see in pictures that are supposedly 150 pounds are actually 120.
