    David is he protected? Man, I always am carrying after dark, generally my Taurus 4410 (now they call it the Judge, bought it before it got renamed). 45 Long colt, 410 deer slug, 410 OO buck. Can be loaded in any order. I have heard of DNR releasing some bobcats, but that thing in my backyard, would implement the three S method. 1. Shoot 2. Shovel 3. Shut up!!!!

    Let me know if he/she/it is fair game, would love to come down and spend a weekend doing some predator calling! Bet Larry would come for that!!!

    God and family, the rest is icing on the cake. I'm so far behind, I think I'm in first place!

    I was camping in the San Gorgonio wilderness a few years ago when I was up at 6 AM "taking care of business". As I was sitting there one if these guys walked by about 30-40 feet away. Had the decency to let me finish, not kill and eat me.

    Maybe there was a scent that turned him off?

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    Folks.....that ain't no bobcat.

    That is cougar.....mountain lion.......that pitbull wouldn't stand a chance against that cat.

    With the restrictions placed on hunting mountains/cougars the population is growing. They are a territorial animal and like bears, wolves, etc need a fairly large area to support their livilhood. Thus they are being seen in areas they haven't been seen in decades.

    A co-worker in central Oregon was bow hunting deer with his BIL in the desert and had a cougar stalk him to within 15'. In self defense, he arrowed it in the chest and took it to the F&G.

    That is a serious cat!

    That's the only good thing I have ever heard about pit bulls.

    Dunno about the pit vs. cat. But that is a unique picture.
    If I had to kill one like your friend did, I sure wouldn't announce it to the authorities. I like my present address too much to change it to j-a-i-l .
    Officially, we don't have them in Arkansas.
    Really though, we really do.
