Let's face it, you never REALLY know what you are going to run into while in the woods. In my case, I rarely ever run into what I am looking for. But, nature never disappoints when it comes to providing some beautiful scenery or creatures.

Our friend Joe had a interesting encounter on opening day of General Hunting Season here in western Montana. In the latter part of his morning hunt, he was greeted by a young mountain lion that Joe could only refer to as "Whiskers."

Joe was calm, cool and collected as the same lion attempted to "sneaky stalk" him multiple times. Joe described via his Facebook, that there was only one time that he felt he even needed to raise his weapon (a.k.a boom stick.)

See Joe's footage of his encounters with Whiskers the kitty.
