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!

It took a few beats to process what I was seeing, and if it was real.  but yes, I had the debate about who was hunting who in my mind!  :yike:

That's what I was thinking, that you were the prey. I'm surprised he didn't take off when he saw you. Good thing you had those deer helping you out!

And this, my dear friends, is why we by that cougar tag.  Most of us will never use it, but this is a stellar reason why you need it.

Congratulations to Cool Hand Luke.  I am not sure I would have been able to keep my composure.

Congrats on a nice cat and story.  There is an amazing feeling that one experiences and does not forget when you are that close to a large predator....been there myself.

As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.
