here kitty kitty
« on: December 02, 2008, 06:15:13 PM »

man am i happy! last year i didnt cut a tag due to nothing being big enough and the first snow fall and bang i get a HUGE TOM

Our weekend was going pretty good, Saturday i got my first Bobcat. We only released one hound so the track wouldnt get over run. It was only an hour chase...an little walk to get the blood pumping   :P  And Sunday we leave the house 2.5 hours early for a long drive to look for Cougar tracks. At around 9am we find his track and let two hounds go and watch them on my GPS tracker...at first we thought there was a wreck cause they were doing circles. Little did we know there was a fresh deer kill up there and the Cougar was covering ground in the perimeter of his kill. When we saw that the Hounds we out of the circle we released the remaining hounds. 1.9 Miles in the hard area to get into  they treed my HUGE TOM :shock:




its Kill












i hope you guys like him, i know i do!

What do you do with the cougar afterwards?  Can you eat them?  Trophy?  Just curious.

I guess I'll be the vote of dissent here, but I find this post sad for a couple of reasons:

1) Why would anyone want to kill such a beautiful animal?
2) Your dogs treed this cat, and then you shot it out of the tree.  Doesn't sound like much of a hunt to me.

I can certainly appreciate the fact that it seems you did this by the book (ie. legally, with tag, etc), and you are well within your right to do what you did.  I just don't agree with it, in fact I disagree with it even more than I disagree with catching and retaining a 50lb+ chinook.

I am happy to hear that you are eating it and not only using it as a trophy mount.

Regards,
Tex

No different than shooting a deer. A deer is a beautiful animal as well. Although I'm not a hunter I don't have a problem as long as the meat does not go to waste.

The ONLY way to hunt these animals is to tree them and shoot them. You are not aloud to set up bait and when was the last time you have seen a wild cougar? They might see you, you rarely see them until you are being held by the throat. I consider myself to have seen 5 already, and I am only 15. I know people that hunt all the time and have never seen one is 30+ years.

Nice animal, nice mount  ;D

Make sure you show us pics of the finished product.  ;)

Well, my dictionary says:

1.  sporting (adj.) - involving risk or willingness to take a risk; "a sporting chance".   :o

LOL... Wow that was clever.  Did you come up with that on your own?

I don't have a problem with hunting, I just don't see the need or value to kill a mountain lion.  Killing a mountain lion on a type of "hunt" that is pretty far from what I to be actually "hunting", seems like nothing more than a macho ego-booster.  Especially when you go an post it on a site like this.

Just my two cents.

He posted it for the same reason you or anyone else posted a Steelhead or Coho or a Spring. I don't get why it is such a big deal. I would love to have one of those rugs, and if cougar meat is as good as everyone is saying, why not kill it for meat. There are enough of them around you just can't see them ::)

I'm not making it into a "big deal", ED, I'm just stating my opinion.  And I certainily respect a person's right to hunt, as long as they're doing so legally, which it seems BCHunter is doing.  I just dislike the idea of killing a cougar.
