I do carry a .38 Special S&W M-10-7 2" revolver, loaded with some 158 Gr. SWC HC reloads that I bought for 'Woods Cruising'. They should be enough around here. I don't go far into the woods anymore.

    How do you tell a Mountain Lion from a Cougar, or all the other big Cats??? They all look the same to me!

    Now a 9mm Ruger LC9s is my carry gun in town, and beside the bed, at night. Bob


    Bob, Mountain lions, cougars & panthers (in the USA) are all different names for the same critter. They run 100-150 lbs. around here. Panthers in other countries are a different species. Jaguars are rare here but a few have wandered up from Mexico, they're colored different (spotted) & bigger. Bobcats are of course smaller & have short tails. There is a 40+ lb. bobcat that hangs around here along w/ her now grown cub. None of the wildcats here show even the slightest fear of men & total disdain for dogs (unless there's a pack of trained hounds). They (along w/ whitetails, mule deer & javelina) come in to our pond or water though every few nights. The wild cats help keep the varmints under control.

    We have a Swan that was hatched this past spring by the creek near our house. She or he started out with parents and two siblings. One day we noticed that one sibling and both parents were gone with just two siblings remaining. That's unusual because the whole family stays together until the creek starts to freeze and then they all leave together. One day I was watching one of the Swans walking near the geese and looked like it was feeding off the ground. Swans eat in the shallows and it looked like the Swan might be sick. Now only one remains and it has a goose buddy who stays with the Swan all of the time. The one left seems very healthy and is doing fine but I would sure like to know what happened to the parents and the one sibling. The thing with it's goose buddy is that geese come and go but goose buddy stays with the Swan. We do have fox in the area but I don't think that's what happen.

    And don't forget about the Lynx - more similar to a Bobcat than a mountain lion, but a fierce pussycat nonetheless.

    That's pretty crazy, hopefully there will be a positive ID and cause of death on the deceased.

    FWIW, personal carry is a Pro Series 686P with homemade 158gr Wichester JHPs low 1400s.

    I used to date a gal who lived close to Houston county. She saw a big black cat out there several times. I have coyotes that lay in the field next to me. Drives my youngest mutt crazy. A predator call, red or green flash light on a 15-22 is a thought. When I shine a white light on them they don't move.
