Was Stone Sheep your intended target and if so, did you find tracks in the dirt which prompted you to install a camera there?
I seem to recall about 5 years ago you hunting for them and lugging one out on your back for countless km.
To greater appreciate an animal you have to walk in their footsteps

I would agree. Definitely looks like a Tom.

This was on the camera I have setup for Mountain Goats that I have pictures of in an earlier post. Lots more goat pictures. I will try to get some posted in the next few days. I wish I was back up north looking over stone sheep country but these are all from south interior west of the Fraser canyon. Not going to happen this year but a trip north could be a possibility in 2022. I've never looked at a lion distribution map but I think it’s unlikely that lion populations overlap with our northern stone sheep habitats. Lots of lion predation on bighorns in the southern half of the province. If I wasn't so spread out I'd get some cameras setup to Bighorns also. So many species, so little time...

I tend to agree, albiet it still a young tom. Note the possibility of a torn ear which is very unusual.
