2016 Cougar
« on: September 19, 2016, 07:51:42 AM »
I spent the weekend in the mountains with my brother and friend taking pictures of elk.  We had them screaming all day, it was pretty cool.  On our way to a new spot this cat was just sitting on the side of the road.  We drove past, got out and walked back through the trees and it was still sitting there watching elk bugle across the canyon.  One shot at 30 yards did the trick!  It was the first cougar any of us had ever seen!

I got one in a similar site last year,  very exciting!  You got plans for mounting it?   Also, was that I  the blues?  Looks kinda like it,  but who knows.

Congrats on the Cat! We saw one sprint across a main line road like 2 years ago, but that was the closest.

p.s (good last name! haha)  (Frazier too)

Congrats on bagging a nice fawn killer.

Spectacular animal! I can't imagine the rush you felt reaching for your rifle hoping it wouldn't move.
Congratulations! Love to see such a healthy looking animal.

Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.
