We were walking down a logging road and this guy came walking up to us at 15 yards.

So were you filming the tree and grass or that cougar in the background? :chuckle:

Lol!!! Very true. I was trying to hold camera up and the view finder isn’t very big so I kept looking up at cougar to see where it was.

You could've filmed him much better had you shot him and got him laying there all cute and cuddly. :chuckle:

Were you calling prior to seeing the cat?  Just curious if you think maybe the cat was looking for some turkey nuggets.

Bet you did a pantie check not long thereafter.  :chuckle:  Of course with shotguns or other weapons close at hand, you were in pretty good shape dealing with that situation.  Awesome post though.  There's some real tension building as it is walking towards you. I wish the vid was better, but I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have had the presence of mind to pull out my phone if I saw that cat walking at me, so good on ya!
