So, when you handcall a cougar, what average
 distance they appear? Thank you


Check the call-in story page... it's often very close! They come from wherever, but you seeing them before they're in your lap is another thing!

I have to learn how to handcall, then I might have chance on wet side to call one.

I added a second Non-Calling Cougar hunting story today.

NC2, a calling trip that turned into a spot and stalk before the call made the first cry!

I got the red one. Turkey river calls. Gorgeous wood and a great sound.

I like the idea of a deer cartridge. Possibly with varmint bullets, but I like a little thump to it... just in case! I shot one with a 223, I wouldn’t do it on purpose again. I’d do it, but id prefer the 243 any day of the week.

.223 to the head drops them right now
Keep the wind in your hair, and the sun at your back.


A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

Whst size / type bullet did you use from the .223, and at what range?

Be a shame to bust up the skull though.

Took the 300WSM last weekend. Wanted something stainless for a wet day and in the event of a marginal hit, I like what 30 cals do to deer sized game.
