They might not be as large or as social, but mountain lions hunt much like their African cousins. North America’s largest wild cat is a canny predator and stealthy to boot. In the below video, M2D Camo’s Eric Martin calls in a mountain lion. On the first viewing, it might not be apparent that the cat was actually in frame for the majority of the video. If you’re sharp-eyed enough, you can see the mountain lion actually moving into position in the early few seconds of the footage.

How the confused cat acts when greeted with a decoy is interesting as well.

    Well, my impression is that it was a young cat. Secondly, he wasn’t fooled. There was no stealth in his approach. This is a classic curiosity killing (or would have) the cat. Great video and nice calling.

    What an absolutely gorgeous animal. I never realized their true beauty.

    That’s one badass cat. (And he wasn’t in that spot until 0:30.)
