I don’t hunt predators but I do know that this time of year, you can readily call in bears and cats with fawn bleats. Bear mostly just come shambling straight in, but cats will circle and sneak in, so scent control is paramount. Tests show that bear spray works just fine on lions. We have plenty of bears and lions and my wife carries bear spray always, but never a gun. She’s been growled and hissed at when the dogs got too close to an occupied kitten den, as have I, but nothing more. Thing about cats is that they’re invisible and see you all the time while you rarely see them. Should be an exciting hunt! Judging by rare attack reports larger people are almost never accosted by lions while smaller people are at risk. Maybe wear high heels and a tophat? 😆
