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 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.

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.
Kindly do not attempt to cloud the issue with too many facts.
