Seems for the last year on here.....theres been countless "mountain lion / cougar / black panther" threads..possible pics and plenty of debate. Always a definite division of opinion but everytime I see one posted I keep asking myself what I call the "million dollar question"........ Lets say the KDF&WR's confirms theres a definite wild population of mountain lions in Ky. How does it change things??? Are we going to stop hunting or other outdoor activities.....stay indoors...not let our kids play outdoors... or basically hide from the critters??? or .......Is the issue of the debates / countless links on confirmation in other states on the subject ....strictly a case of.... I Told You So ??? I guess what I'm getting at.....we face a certain amount of unknowns everyday as we go about are daily lives. Getting behind the wheel ....work place safety....to crimes in general. As hunters & fishermen.....we put ourselves even further into the mix. Theres already the known dangers associated in our sport and were already dealing venomous snakes , yotes, wild dogs and for a portion a growing black bear population. We have concealed & open carry supporting us afield....and ultimately we have the right to protect ourselves and our families....along with we should simply be aware of our surroundings always. I just cant see beyond the obvious I Told You So.....but maybe I'm just missing a piece of the puzzle here. Again....not trying to post this as a peeing contest between believers or non-believers.....not my intention.... and we dont need countless links..pics ...ect. Just wanting to know in either case if it is really something we fear that bad.
