Any suggestions on hunting lions without dogs. We just bought some land in area 20 of Colorado. I saw a lion about 20 yards from the house. The neighbor has found at least 4 deer kills from lions. I would like to thin them out.
I don't know how successful you will be trying to call them. I have lived in Utah my whole life, and I have only seen two lions without the aid of my good old hound dawgs. I'm sure the situation is different where you are at. I know there is a good chance you could get them to respond to a call, but as cats are they are silent and stealthy, and I can almost bet that if they sense that anything is out of normal you'll never even know they are there, and they'll be gone. Try it, what are you out? hunting is always fun.
your only chance without dogs is just dumbluck,being there when hes in the right spot,the odds are very low.If I were you I would make friends with someone who runs hounds and make plans to hunt this winter
Moose calling can get confusing to some, but cow calling is your main tool when moose hunting. If you go out and buy moose calls I would say you're wasting your money unless it is the birch bark cone. I find most store bought moose calls sounding worse than puffing a grunt your hands to make the call. You can roll up a piece of birch bark in a cone shape to use as a call and spend your money on a video that teaches you the basics of a cow call. A milk jug or a coffee can with a hole and a rope...
