very cool! when i found your page initially i read every story several times, just looking for clues and patterns.... cool there are some new ones! i need to make time and start getting you my stories, i pursue them a lot, and have had many encounters the past few years, both on purpose and accident. love reading lion encounter stories.

i run trail cams from Dec-june/july, and their only purpose is lions..... they are cool critters and epitomize elusive. i have a ridge behind my house that has lots of lion traffic, with scrapes every 1-200yds for over a mile at least, some scrapes will have 3 different direction scrapes in the one scrape.... either the same cat hitting the same scrape several times, from different directions of travel through the same intersection where the scrape is.... crazy area.

it's coastal NF land and i'm having a really hard time finding decent setups to call, any place i sit down facing up hill, there is no way you would ever see a lion come in through the ferns... i really need a tree stand to hunt this ridge

thanks again for supplying the resources you do!

Posted another story on my call in story page... O32

http://www.rain-shadow.com/cougar_callin_stories.htm

This one is a little different, but it's something that I've heard of happening repeatedly, so it needs to be covered!

Check it out! - O32

Posted a new Call-in Story. Youtube Video of the entire thing after the shot! Look for "O33" on the call-in story page!

HS Football coach visits friends, they go cat hunting, he runs the stand with his ICOtech and RainShadow sounds.... and he goes 2 for 2 on lion stands (even though he didn't do the shooting!)

No, that isn't 'typical' either!

I told him, someday he'd have the satisfaction of having 30 dry stands in a row... but he's just a beginner, so he can't expect to get to that level immediately!

I will post the story as soon as I get it from the shooter!

Just Posted R21. Great story by the young hunter, and great post-shot video by the Coach!

http://www.rain-shadow.com/cougar_callin_stories.htm

Distress and 3 different RainShadow vocals, predominantly "RS S Live Whistles" brought in a young cat. Great story! Lots of fun interacting with these guys over the past couple weeks!

Enjoy!

I've been noticing that the call in story page is getting quite LONG!



One thing I've found that you can do to consume it is to have your computer or device read it to you. That way you can reload, or drive or whatever.



You have to kinda focus to get much out of the robot voice, but it does work.



For the computer, for instance, you go to the page, click where you want to start, and then right click, and then click "Read Aloud" or press Control and Shift and U at the same time.



Just a little life hack!

Just reviving this because I'm seeing a lot of random Archery and Muzzleloader season Cougar Kills on social media and local hunting forums... I'd sure love to get a short story and a pic if you kill a Lion!!!

The nearby units fill the quotas quickly.
Weve had them in our rural neighborhood this summer a few times. Had one 33 feet away from me in the yard August 2nd.

I've wondered about that area... (I'm looking to flip a house into a retirement property that I can develop later.)


Just posted A-29 . . . Great surprise call-in story!

Just posted A-30 . . . Far more common accidental call-in than most elk hunters realize!
