Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My! Ranch I hunted in WY several years ago was full of Lions and the only way the outfitter could get us on to hunt mule deer was if the outfitter promised to kill at least one lion for each deer he took off. One lion will take 50-75 deer a year if it is a good hunter. The mule deer I took had to be quartered and back packed out, we left the legs, inners, ribs and back half of the hide, next AM we traversed same spot and there was nothing left to be see, even the blood clots were gone! This fall I plan to hunt my Wis bear from a Double Bull blind, recent back surgery doesn't want me to climb a tree, at least that what is my wife says! Happy Hunting!
