I shot a 160 pound Mountain lion near Pecos, Nm last month. I saw pics of Carl Barnes Mountain lion and I just knew I had to have one too!!!! Got in contact with Carl and he got me set up with Joe Troyer at Lil Joe's Big Game Hunting. Joe worked his rear off getting me a cat. We covered alot of country in New Mexico to find it but when we did, it was worth every bit of it. Thanks again guys!!!!

Congrats on a great lion!  Love the blue hound in a couple of the photos.  I have a litter of six at the house right now and one of them is headed to NM to a lion hunting buddy.

I will agree that is the #1 best first post ever.

Adios,

Gary

Hey Tanner,

 

Welcome to the Posse! You sure know how to introduce yourself!! That is a great lion!! Joe really knows his stuff. I can't wait for our black bear hunt with him again in August!

 

Bob :P


There is room for all of God's creatures, right next to the mashed potatoes.

I have just realized I have jumped the gun, and skipped over the "New members start here"!!!!!! I'll just introduce my self right now. My name is Tanner, I'm a Production Techincian of an oil company in the Permain Basin. I'm married and have 2 kids. I'm always going somewhere hunting, I'v been known to sometimes leave my gun in the truck and just take my camera and yes there has been many times I wished I had brought my rifle. I mainly hunt varmints and whitetail, the past few years I have been hunting some exotics and traveling to different states to hunt. Sure am looking forward in getting to know ya'll. Thank you all for the nice comments!!!

 

P.S. Leaving next thursday to go free range Axis hunting...... and there is some big ones!!!!!
