i've never hunted coyote before and want to get started on my scouting and practice my calling. i've heard that mountain lion and black bear, which are in the area, will sometimes come in to wounded animal calls. black bear don't worry me, but the big cats kinda freak me out. i want to make sure i'm ready since they are know to sneak up on a person. i carry an 06 with iron sights for scouting, but would i be better off with a 12ga and 00buck for lion? i've never seen a mtn lion up close and i'm not sure how they act.
