I had hunted from November through February of 2010 trying to find a Mountain Lion. Finally on the 25th of February a couple of friends with dogs and I were out looking for tracks when the dogs hit on a sent.
4 hours later they had the cat cornered on a 30 foot ledge at the top of the mountain. It took us another 3 hours to reach them. As we came over the top of the mountain the cat was on a rock on the edge of the ledge 50 yards away. When I received confermation that the cat was a big one I shot hitting him in the center of the chest. He jumped and fell dead on the edge of the cliff. He was approximatily 150 lbs and scored at 14 7/16ths.
