Both lions are frozen whole, yet to be skinned out, but I'm not eating it. I'll probably debone it and use as bait in cat cubbys abd coyote dirtholes.
The grandad bobcat was definitely on the decline at just over 25 pounds.

Even without the known "ok" outcome, that's a chance I'd take again. Bobcat in hand. And a scar that has a story behind it I can't wait to tell. Lol! In hindsight, I'm pretty glad I wasn't quite quick enough in that rock crevasse that day. Thanks for the congrats. Figures.

Do the lions ever turn up in trappable numbers in the country over to the east more, or are they only "common" in the west end of southern Tx.??

I would say no. Not in trappable numbers. They're pretty concentrated to the western part of the state. But there are sightings around Austin recently from credible eyes. So they may be moving that direction. When the Texas Parks and Wildlife biologist came to get the tounge samples, he said most lions were coming from the area where we were to Laredo.

Excellent story, and pictures. Really makes me miss running the lines and setting steel. Cannot wait until retirement to hopefully get back into it.
Thanks for sharing.
