Arizona Mountain Lion


I just called this cat in over the weekend while calling for bear. I just couldn't go home empty handed, so I took the shot. It was 265 yards with my .30-06 using 220 grain bullets. It went another 30 yards into the thick brush where I gave it a finishing shot. I have already butchered it and have eaten mountain lion burgers for dinner and have consumed jerked meat for snaking. It is a delicious light roast that is super lean and semi-pork like. It is great stuff!

Das plenty of GUN- Bullet for kitty--I used a 357 ruger single action for mine-- I really blike hunting them with mules around Patagonia and Nogales.
I also eat them and some AZ folks thought me nuts-but then they ain't alone.
