    So does anyone know a taxidermist who does a decent job mounting these beasts?

    I heard Buckfever mounted a couple of 350 pound cougars. Said they weren't anywhere near the record cougar, as he has mounted at least one that eclipsed the 400 pound mark. That Buckfever is quite a man!

    Y'all might have heard that wild hogs have been illegally released in the LBL. Well, guess what, mountain lions follow the food source so now LBL has them too.

    The Feds won't allow firearms bigger than what's used for the game that's in season. So that means a guy is walking around in the squirrel woods with his trusty .22 while cougars lurk about.

    No thanks!! I'm staying home.

    Semp,

    Does that mean that you must limit your rifle caliber to .22 center fire, or a shotgun with birdshot when you are calling coyotes on the LBL? On the cougar issue----Is the cougar protected in that area? Any open season on them? The cougar is on my most wanted list, and I would love to call one in and kill it. I would love to have a cougar rug. I am real particular though. I won't trap a cougar on purpose, nor hunt one down with dogs. I want to call it in to my gun.

    I hear y'alls buddy Obama is plannin on moving to LBL with his family when he gets his arse kicked out of the White House. The feds are movin him in under the cover of darkness. The big cats are going to be his new bodyguards and the armadillos are for ol lady Obamas new low cal diet for them.

    Semp,

    I got your message, and thanks for the warning. I had no idea that Kentucky had such fierce cougars. Maybe they need a few more armadillo's shipped in there.

    Well.... despite my personal safety.... I went to LBL on a combination squirrel & coyote / cougar / armadillo hunt Saturday evening.

    Managed to kill 4 squirrels ....then on about 7pm....set-up in a good location to do some calling. No results....so I packed up.....headed home.

    It was pretty warm & I was as hot as all get out...... so stopped at the store in Aurora for coke. Thats when it happened.... just as I was leavin....there they were. It was a three of'em ...definitely two females....that looked to be travelling with a young male. The females looked to be really mature... lots of battle scars on both. Hair coloring blonde to mostly silver.... real ferocious looking critters...just glad it was getting fairly dark out. So......I jumped back in the truck & hightailed it toward the house.

    Ya'll just be carefull.... never know where you might run into one...day or night.

    Its not surprising at all to me that the mighty pussycats have invaded old Kaintucky. Heck, when I was about 13 years old, which was a long, long, long time ago, my brother and a friend of his took me white bass fishing to Herrington Lake. About 2:00 in the morning, with the fish not biting much, and some eyes getting sleepy, they told me about some red tailed wampus kitties that were found in that part of the state. I think they are even more rare than cougars.
