|Adam & the gang with his BRUTE of a lion!|
After two years of drawing a Navajo Nation tag and countless hours of training, scouting and endless days cutting tracks, it all finally came together.
I am a beginner when it comes to hunting with hounds, therefore I had to wait until all the elements were in my favor. The area had received snow for two days straight and the National Weather Service forecast was calling for a drastic change in temps. All good indications of good cat movement…
|100′ cliffs at the edge!|
The truck thermometer was reading -24F when we left the house and most of the roads were snow packed. We found a track that was fairly fresh and turned the dogs out on it at about 9:00am. The dogs trailed for 13 miles before the tom was bluffed up. We had to hike 10 miles in & found the tom was bayed up at the edge of a 100 foot cliff. We honestly thought that some of our dogs were going to go over the edge!
