This was filmed Saturday about an hour from where we deer hunt.

Armed with a Smartphone no less. That dude should be dead-- clearly that cat meant business. At the 2:50 mark I throw that phone at her and scream like a little girl. Yikes.

:eek: :eek: :eek:

I would have definitely picked up the rocks he was walking past or a tree limb. Was the lion protecting cubs or looking for a family meal?

Though I have never seen a bear or lion in the wild, there have been sightings nearby, and I have to admit they cross my mind when walking solo (without a gun) down the long wooded trail into the duck club to do some work. :eek: :yes:

And yes, I would have thrown my totally full tighty whities at the lion. :yes:

That cat was in defense and protect mode protecting her little Cubs. Definitely a dangerous situation. I have been stalked by a mountain lion before, definitely a scary adrenaline pumping situation. About the last thing I’d be doing is videoing that whole thing. The guy is either quite brave or just dumber than dirt.

I really think this guy did most of the right things (aside from filming it) -- made a lot of noise, didn't turn his back, retreated slowly, etc. I kept thinking he needs to pick up a rock and throw it, which is what he did at the end of the video and what made the cat finally run off, but I think crouching down makes you look like a smaller target and may not have been the best thing to do in that situation.

I was impressed he walked backward along that rocky trail as long as he did without tripping and falling down. Falling down may have been the end for that fella.
