Well here is an exceptional lion killed using a predator call this afternoon. We actaully took him home whole and weighed him at the fish Hatchery scale in town, he was 190 pounds. The Skull is 15-12/16 which makes him tied with 5 others skulls for 6th place over all.

Shot with a 30/06 and 165 grain bullet one time!

BS, he will be done lifesize only at the insistance of me! The guy who shot him has no money to do it but I said I'm sure we can have ti done somehow. Even If I have to do it myself. I case skinned the hide so we will be able to decide later how to mount it.

For the record I'm 5'10" tall and 175 pounds. The weight of that lion is no BS! We put him on a good scale. It was all I could do to hoist him for that photo. The stomach was empty as well. Had he been stuffed full of elk meat this lion would have been easily 210-220 pounds. He was very young and had perfect teeth as well.

It's days like this that make you forget all the unsuccessful predator calling hunts you must go through before you really get the big pay off!

Glad you made the man come to his senses! What a waste,not to lifesize something that magnificent.

I don't know how a guy could look at that picture and not say, "THAT is one big ass cat". There are very few critters that lurk,that could begin to excite me as much. That is simply sensational.

Only a very upper end Brownie or super elite Sitka Buck,would equal that magnitude,in my eye. What a splendid animal,congratulations all around!

Heap big jealous here..................
