Thread: Black Cats (BIG uns!)

    Black Cats (BIG uns!)

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...rest-Dean.html

    This is in almost exactly where I live. Now I'm beginning to think I should have gone for 375 H&H on my ticket and not 243 Win!
    In all seriousness has anyone bumped into one of these big cats whilst out (In the UK!)?

    Sadly not!

    Does make you wonder if they are really about though, think of all the hound packs, which if one was around surely they would have flushed out and stalkers out early am and pm and we have never really heard of any concise evidence like photos or a dead one.

    Who knows if they are around? All I hope that if I see one it is a big one and makes a nice rug!

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    The Forestry Commission recently gave an answer under the Freedom of Information Act that confirmed that whilst using infra red equipment for deer counting in the Forest of Dean they saw at least two big cats.

    Out with John Robson on Monday morning and following Roe spoor around a corn field and came across Badger spoor going in the opposite direction. John reckons only spoor here that shows claws. "Saw" the Badger slam it's anchors on when it first had "contact" with the Roe. Must have been pre-dawn.

    I've also seen plenty of roadkill Brock that are very black and no light colour on them at all, very dark grey.
