I don't buy the whole "don't kill it unless you eat it" thing. I've killed a bunch of mice over the yrs in traps I've set in the house but I'll be doggone if I'm going to eat one of those things and I bet nobody here would eat one either. I ain't planning on living with 'em and I sure ain't eating one after I kill it. Same goes for skunks, possums, cats that get in my garbage or on my truck, etc.


Mountain Lion is supposed to be fantastic meat.

I actually asked this question to TWRA. You would be cited for killing the lion wherever they came from. If you killed it in Tennessee.

i've never been one to care whether people people believe or not
and that in my opinion not a good reason to kill anything

I know there was a guy in KY last lear that killed a Wolf, as far as I know he didnt get in trouble since it was not native.

Crow, you are the one not making sense, who would shoot a mouse, they are rodents that can lead to disease.
Sheese, my reference goes back to when my cousin was shooting song birds with a bb gun, and that is the first time I heard that we shouldn't kill for fun, or show.

I would. I got one a camera last year and was basically told I was a liar. I learned a lot from that. Since we don't have a population in the state and they aren't native I don't what's wrong with killing one.

I would just to prove a point... would be a whole lot less embarrassing to explain that to the court instead of a rabbit..

I've shot thousands and thousands of blackbirds and starlings, and a number of coyotes, possums, a few coons and one bobcat none of which I ate. If I ever see a mountain lion while hunting in TN, I'll shoot it too and won't eat it.
