Mountain Lion Questions
I have a good friend who has a nice little deer spot behind his house. Twice he has seen a mountain lion just fleetingly. He no longer sees deer in this area. Mountain lions are legal in TX to kill. It is also pestering his neighbors horses. The cat doesn't appear to be too shy, but it hasn't given any chance of a shot yet. He has asked me to go take care of it for him... I am up to the challenge but don't know where to start. I was thinking of bait and a fawn bleat, but I honestly don't know if this is what I should do or not. I don't know if I should stalk it or hang the meat up into a tree and camo out and wait nearby. Any help on this would be appreciated. AND no I don't have dogs that would track or tree a mountain lion. All the dogs I have access to are coon or hog dogs. I am pretty sure my 243 will do the trick if I can get a shot.
