I had a Colt Python .357 and I shot the old girl at 10 feet right into her open mouth. If I had my K .22 Mag I would have used it. I know lots of lion hunters as you do. I can not imagine shooting a cat with a .454 Mag? Why would you ruin such a fine pelt?
I was dumb and listened to my guide. Now ill use my bow.

But who needs a gun when you've got a good mule?

Ropin that is a good one. We had a bunch of Flat Landers move in here from California some years back. The Urban folks thought it was fun to feed the deer in their yards. The Game Warden told them to stop it would draw lions into their yards. Before long they were calling every body. The cats were eating their pets and and killing deer in front of the kids. Well after 2 Wyoming winters they went back to California any way.

As long as they stick to deer, all is well. It's when a no hunting policy creates a few generations of lions that don't fear man I worry about. I went after them w 44 pistol but couldn't get within range. From what I'm reading, I had too much gun.

Coyotes and raccoons bite more people in the East Coast than anything else. Coyotes got a rather talented folk singer who was gathering material for her next album. Eastern Coyote is larger and more aggressive than western cousin.

I have never heard that before. Coyotes that breed with dogs may be bigger? In Wyoming we kill over 20,000 of them per year. The state and Federal hunters use planes as does the ranches. Private hunters and trappers take many of them. The SW coyote is small but the Northern and High Plains coyotes are big animals. I had a big male watch'in my place this afternoon from a cotton wood grove about 80 yards out. They are starvin this time of year.
