Brockhouse Lion

January 15, 2018 | By: Bradley Brockhouse

Dreams DO come true!  After 7 years of chasing lions my dream of getting one came true on January 3rd!

I have over 1200 game camera pics and have driven and hiked hundreds of miles in search of these magnificent creatures. I cut her tracks yesterday morning and after an arduous climb straight up a steep mountainside I came to a small area where the terrain flattened out a little. I set up my e-caller about 25 yards in front of me and nestled in some rocks for the calling sequence. Only 10 minutes into the set she appeared out of nowhere. I could just see her head and she crouched down and stalked forward a couple steps and that's when I had the opportunity to squeeze off a shot with the .270. She dropped instantly. It was surreal. What an amazing experience!!!!! We celebrated this together as a family as they knew the time I had invested waiting on this special day!!!

Brad's female lion officially weighed in at 93 pounds and was estimated to be 6.5 years old.

Check out all the lions taken in the 2018 season.
