Way to go, man.

So, do you think it was stalking you, or just happened to be close?

I don't know.  I was quiet in the blind and there's been no deer on camera at that blind all week (surprise surprise!). He didn't seem nervous or crouched or anything, just... there! appeared out of nowhere!  :yike: he did have to walk right past the spot i peed before getting to the blind.

Well played and holy stabilizer! For a split second I thought it was like a 25 pin sight :chuckle:

 :lol4: :lol4: Smooth Stability, baby! HAHA! This bow tends to tip backwards at the shot, so I use a bit of front weight  :tup: AND I like being different!  It's gone now, but i had a "rooster" ring for a vibration damper on it for a couple years  :chuckle: :chuckle: people at the range would look at me funny when i pulled it out and there was a pink and purple silicon spiky ring on it  :lol4: :stirthepot:

Did you notice the XX75 2215 aluminums with 4.5" feathers?  :chuckle: :tup:

I did! I am confident that I will never see a bow like yours ever again.  :tup:

You should have seen it when I got it!  It was leopard print!  Like a trashy girl's thong  :lol4: :lol4: :lol4:  Why Martin thought that was a viable color choice for a bow, I'll never know... :chuckle: :chuckle:

Very cool story and great animal. I wonder if it was just curious or of you were potentially on the menu!

never know  :o


I suspect it seen movement and was trying to figure out what was behind that blind, cats see any movement immediately.

Awesome cat and story, well done.  :tup:

When you realized that face staring at you was a cougar did the thought that you might be on the menu for dinner cross your mind? Nice shooting!
