I probably would just so people would believe me. I've been on the opposite side of that debate for a while now, and if I came back claiming to have seen one without any proof, after all the stuff I've said about them not being here...well I better have proof of some kind or people would throw me on the chopping block and have a time. \:\)

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 have heard the same. They also have really nice coats on them, makes for a cool mount, pelt, etc!

What???? On camera???? Where????

Seems like if you have a pic of a "big cat" you go show it to TWRA,should be able to take em to the spot and match up the background in the pic?I don't doubt you,could have come from anywhere,pet,circus,who knows.

This crazy thread really got me thinking about what I would do if I was hunting and saw one, for real.

What would you do?


1) Watch it in amazement (attempt to get a picture of it).
2) Call the TWRA and report what I had seen.

No season, not legal.


That's what I believe as well, no season not legal.
I would however call a GW and show him what someone must have poached. I wouldn't have a weapon along when he showed up, don't want him to think I did it ;\)
