My guess would be that's a .22-250 round next to the track or maybe a .17 rem ............ maybe Confused Question

It is a 22-250, handloaded with a barnes varminator Very Happy

The track was located north of Las Vegas, (yes Nevada), all I need to do is find someone with some good dogs that would be willing to hunt at a last minute notice.

Went back to the same area last weekend, we had some fresh snow. No lion tracks but seen 6 elk, one was a raghorn 3x3 and 3 mule deer doe.
It's allways a good day for a hike in the mountains though

Good luck.

Lemme dig up a picture of a cat track near my house growing up and post it... it was about 6" in diameter, really big cat. My dad actually ran into it with a couple other guys after it attacked some sheep we had... they followed it for 3 hours in the snow... when they finally caught up to it, it walked out 10 yards away and startled them so bad not one of them shot. They had 12GA shotguns with 00buck. My dad grew up in the mountains, he herded sheep for months at a time solo... at 9 years old. Shot and killed alot of stuff so it was extremely surprising to hear that when they saw the cat that close it startled him so bad they all just froze up.

I once when trapping, came upon some fresh cat tracks going around a big bunch of oak brush. I followed the tracks as they looked really fresh and I wanted to see if I could see the cat. I followed them around the brush, and eventually ended up in a full circle right where I started... its tracks going right over the top of the ones I had just made. Being only 14 and only carrying a stupid .22 revolver I decided it was time to head home for the day Smile

Dallan...I can top that. When I was still in California and hunting in the Sierras I came out onto a point of a ridge bare of trees except one. All day I had been seeing big cat tracks and at one time had seen the cat in the brush stalking me. Now this really put me on edge...I was carrying my Winchester .30 WCF 94. When I came to that lone tree at the point of the ridge I decided to take a rest. So I leaned against that tree and relaxed a bit as I could see at least 75 yards around. Heard a noise above me and something hit my shoulder...I swung around cocking that lever action hammer...I damned near shot that pine tree...It was just a squirrel cuttin' pine cones...Jumped clean out of my skin. By the way...An old adage..."First lier don't stand a chance". I'm not so sure if the second lier has much of a chance here either. L O L. Very Happy

A small town in CA close to my cabin is posting pics of mt lions taken locally with a depredation permit. They have four in the last six months all within about 10 miles of the cabin.
(rant on)
I think a petition to relocate mt lions across the state with an equal geographic distribution is appropriate. It's the city slickers that have caused the ban on lion hunting, they should share the results of their decision. LA has some parks that would support about six lions apiece. What with the dogs, cats, squirrels, homeless, dopers, gangbangers and tree huggers the lions should get fat and multiply. Share the wealth is my motto. (rant off)

I wonder what kind of disposition a lion that got addicted to meth addicts would have. Talk about a speed hunter!
