    Nope. But we get one of these threads weekly, but in all the years I have been on here, not one person has ever produced pics. Hope you are the first. Not counting on it.

    I for one, can't wait to see the picture. Why do I have a feeling it'll be a mountain lion stalking an elk at night in the pic.

    Now thats funny
  12. I have only seen 3 legit trail cam pics of mt lions around here and none of them were on this site. I would love to see one make it on here here that is not a fake, but I don't see it happening.

    Where are these 3 legit pics? Why cant you post them?
  14. Because they are not mine. I have no ownership of them. All 3 were brown/yellow cats with tails visible. One is at a sporting goods store here in the county. Another was taken by a local barber who kept the pic at his store. Neither will loan them out to have copies made in fear of losing them. I'm sure they have no desire doing personal favors for people by copying them. The other was shown to me by a guy from Va. at a football game. His is the only one that may not be genuine, but he would have had to go to a lot trouble to fake it. And let's be honest, why would anyone want to fake a photo in the first place. If their self esteem is that small, then I feel sorry for the people that do. Most pictures we see are the ones that make the email rounds and come from other areas. Usually does a good job of proving they're fake.

    If I get one myself I will post it, but honestly I have nothing to prove to anyone. I have my own thoughts on them just like you do. I'm fine knowing what I do about them regardless of what anyone believes. I do think some black panther post are funny though. But rest assured, I will post one if I ever get a pic myself or get permission.

    Just asking. I hear all these storys about pics and sightings, but none of you can ever produce a pic. Always some kind of excuse. No biggy.

    Meade and Hardin Counties are my stomping grounds. If it wonders my way, you guys will see pics. :)
  17. I heard that. If you are willing to drive here to BFE, then you can have a first hand look at it yourself. But I'm not sure that even a picture would change some minds. Most people aren't as open to looking at pics as you are. They already have their minds made up and would be skeptical no matter what, which I guess most of us should be in today's times.

    The local news would be more than willing to cover a story of an actual mountain lion anywhere in the state.If I killed one I would go to the local TV station with the carcass before I went anywhere,problem solved.
    If I had a real pic I think it could be authenticated easily,however everyone who "supposedly" has a pic never others to do so,why?
    Even if one does someday show up here in KY the truth is that 99% of all the stories are made up lies or pure misidentification.There are thousands of sightings yearly and no confirmation(ok a kitten).If half of these were true then we are overrun and I am scared to go out of the house:eek::eek:

    Bobcat Creating Extra Excitement On Prestonsburg Golf Course
    Golf is usually a quiet, peaceful game, but there's been some extra excitement on one Eastern Kentucky golf course.

    Golf is usually a quiet, peaceful game, but there's been some extra excitement on one Eastern Kentucky golf course.
    It started as an average day at Stone Crest[​IMG] Golf Course. Wes Hall and another employee were clearing the rough from sliced shots on the range, when they realized they weren't alone.
    "I heard something in the tall grass. I thought it was a snake so I turned around and when I did, I saw it leap out of the grass right there and go under the fence," Hall said.
    It certainly was no snake. A similar, if not the same extra large bobcat was captured in a picture on the number seven fairway, just a few days ago.
    "I had a golf club in my hand, so I guess I could have protected myself, but I just threw it down and ran," said David Lester.
    When you golf in the mountains, regulars here at Stone Crest say seeing wildlife adds excitement to the game. Bobcats, cougers, copperheads and a pack of coyotes have all been spotted on the greens this summer.
    Wildlife officials say it was definitely a bobcat in the photo, but it was so large that it may have been a hybrid. They say if you do come close to one, just stand still and observe it. Most likely it will run away in fear of you.
