OMG, I had to see if this thread was real, LMAO
I guess if I ran into him I'd take him home like Harry and the Hendersons.
Nah, seriously though, I wouldn't shoot it.
I live in Louisiana and people including just about every game warden I've met swear up and down that we don't have cougars/mountain lions here. Well, one day I was sitting in my box stand and saw one. About ten yards away, no mistaking it. Thing is, I didn't want to shoot it, and now no one believes me. Still, I had no intention of eating a big house cat, so there was no sense in killing it IMO. I think I made the right call to let it go. I know what I saw, but I do carry a disposable camera with me now
