you should be safe if you wear a neck brace, or at least have a fighting chance and use a chuck norris knife.

Looks like you won't exactly be at the top of the food chain when hunting that feeder.

We had a pair of cats move in to one of our ranches in Knox county a month ago, deer pictures went from promising to few and far between. They will move out and deer will move back in; the cats can cover a lot of territory.

You could probably make some money selling those pics to people over here in East Texas who claim that they are covered up in mountain lines at their deer lease .

I'm hoping I didn't spook them when I was down there last weekend. There's a deep canyon on one side of me and a huge canyon on the other side. There's lots of overhanging rocks and small caves in those canyons. I'm pretty sure that's where they hang out until dark.

From looking at twp of the pics, one cat is coming from the huge canyon and in another pic the single cat is coming from the smaller canyon.

About 2 years ago, the camp next door to us had one on camera as it walked through their camp.

I guess I'm going to have to start using a better flashlight when walking in to my stand. I either go in dark or with a very small single AA flashlight. Now I'm thinking about a spotlight and a 12 volt backpack!

Seriously. I'm not worried about it. Cat attacks a pretty rare, unless you're a runner or cyclist in California! I think the sound of my UTV will run them off. Besides, there's no telling what's been watching us walk to and from our stands.

So, my mom was telling me about big cats’ unusual attraction to Calvin Klein Obsession cologne. You’ve got the perfect set up to test it out on cougars...

Might just apply to males but it could be interesting to try.

I also have a ton of respect for big cats, and basically anything that can eviscerate me with its bare hands without breaking a sweat.

There's just something about an animal that takes down with its claws other animals we need a .300 win mag to kill that suggests a certain level of cautious awareness is warranted.

Cheat sheet: If it can wrestle down an elk and crush its windpipe with its massive teeth, you should probably give it some space.

You have a stronger chance of choking on pork rinds or jerky and dying in camp than u do of being eaten by a big putty tat

As a general rule, yes. But it's a lot like lightning or a Great White Shark attack - once you put yourself in close proximity, you can no longer take comfort in the overall likelihood of an occurrence. You've already done the work to erase the 99.9999% likelihood it won't happen.

Lions don't typically hang out like a pet coon. If he gets another trail cam pic I'll be surprised.

Being in the neighborhood of a lion doesn't mean much if you don't factor in their tendency to shy away from humans. I'm in close proximity to drunk or distracted drivers all the time. But statistically speaking, I like my chances of surviving.

Just "leak" that those cats have information on Hillary Clinton, and they'll wind up committing suicide. Problem solved.

Why would you not want to wonder upon a mountain lion is my question? To hell with avoiding them. They ain't gonna kill themselves. Shoot 'em,they'll die.
