I am assuming that since one of the websites has "coonhound" in it, that you guys use dogs?

Ca, if you were going to do a big cat hunt would you do it with a rifle or bow?  I think I'd opt for the bow.  Mountain lion hunts seem like they be exciting, but the end seems a bit anticlimatic.

For a lion hunt with dogs why

For a lion hunt with dogs why would you need a rifle?  All it would be is extra weight to lug up and down the hills while you are chasing the cat.  Even a bow would add extra weight.  I'ld just use a pistole since the shot would be quite close. 

Now if you are out in the wilds and come across a cat and you have a cat tag well then the bow or rifle would have its place. 

I know that in all the years that I have been hunting in the wilds of the west I have seen quite a few cats without the aide of dogs and feel quite fortunate in seeing them.  I even came across two of them a male and a female one day while I was elk hunting while they were making baby mountain lions and I couldn't believe what I saw.  An interesting thing about it was that the hunting partner that I had that day had never been hunting before and that was his first day out in the field.  Once I spotted them and handed him my binocolulars for him to see and I got my rifle scope on them they were though and went on their merry way.  Now that was an experience.

A pistol makes sense but I

A pistol makes sense but I suspect more people use a rifle or bow than a pistol.  One kind of pistol caliber would you use?  What would be the minimum for a big cat?  Inquiring minds want to know!

Anything from the .357 mag up

Anything from the .357 mag up should work.  From what I have heard and read a cat isn't that hard to kill once it is in a tree and your shot wouldn't be that far of a shot.

I think if I did it, I'd do it with my bow.  A pistol would be a good option too, but I think I'd use my Mathews.
