    Cougars are here, officially.

    We've had sightings for years, but I didn't really believe it till I saw one a year or so ago. People claim to see stuff all the time, and I usually take the stories with a grain of salt. Of course, a lot of people didn't believe me, when I said I saw one.

    Anyway, this one was caught on camera about 25 miles south of here. This one is a little bigger than the one I saw.

    Judging by his dress, I'd say he probably doesn't have a valid hunting license. Arrest that dude. Also,
    I"m very jealous of that rack too.

    Folks here in Young County TX say we have cougars. Interestingly, no one has captured on a game camera. I've seen a huge increase in bobcats and there's usually one on each of my game cameras like clock work the last few weeks. I keep waiting for one day when I do capture a photo of one!

    South of San Antonio, if you really want to know.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    That picture if the date is set correctly was from 2009.

    My grandson emailed it to me and said the site was Jacksonville, TX. So, never mind, I guess. It's obviously been all over the Internet, for years - I didn't vet it.

    Makes no difference. They are here. Too many sightings to be BS. And they've been here. Man's encroachment on their habitat has made sightings increase. My cousin has a ranch north of Lampasas and she was in her deer blind one morning and out one walks. She just sat there watching it play. I believe they're some around my deer lease the way animals behave sometimes. One day there's deer and coyotes everywhere then all of a sudden even the yotes disappear.
