Thread: Cougar sighting in Tennessee

    Cougar sighting in Tennessee

    A few weeks ago I was trout fishing in North Carolina on the Tennessee border and hear elk bugling, so I slipped through the woods and got some nice photos of several bulls, as close as 20 yards, before they spotted me.

    In past years, I have had the good luck to spot a black panther crossing a road between two corn fields just south of Savannah River Site, a nuclear weapons research facility of 340 square miles. Two years ago, while on the site at dusk, I saw a large cougar cross a parking lot.

    Now, a camera has captured one in Tennessee.

    A Man should be wise, but never too wise. He who does not know his fate in advance is free of care

    Sorry, I couldn't resist it

    I was hunting in Georgia a few years ago and was lucky enough to spot a bobcat. It crossed a trail to my extreme left while I was in a seat, so there was no chance of a shot, or even a photograph. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have taken a shot anyway. I DID, however, shoot 3 raccoons with two shots from a hundred or so yards in the swamp. Apparently, I'm now something of a legend in Nashville, Georgia

    It is always a thrill for me to see a bobcat. I encounter them while hunting and have hunted them and called them up when they got to be a problem.

    I have encountered wolves several times, and that is always something to make you stop and stare.

    As to your raccoons, you would not be a legend in Georgia until you barbequed and ate all three coons at one sitting.

    Pahaha! Thats exactly what I thought when I saw the thread title!

    If you're shooting badly, you need a new gun. If you're shooting well then you deserve a new gun.
