    What's the best way to respond to a cougar in the wild? I was working on the family farm today and the neighbor farmer called and said his wife and another guy saw a cougar run from the patch of woods I was working in with my chainsaw. Cougar's in my neck of the woods are very rare. What do I do besides bring an extra pair of underwear if I see this guy in the woods tomorrow? I would rather have your opinions over what the local media says to do.

    I went out in the woods one time with a huntress friend of mine. She went her way, I stalked fresh tracks the other way.

    She came across a lion, dropped her rifle, barrel down in the mud, completely taken by surprise. I had given her my .22 wheel gun and holster before we split up.

    In the distance, I heard 5 distinct rim-fire rounds go off. She had the presence of mind to clear all chambers into the head of this charging lion.

    Here's where it gets interesting. The lion kill was not in season, although a predator, so says the Game Warden who heard the screams of both the lion and the huntress friend of mine.

    You cannot leave this carcass here, you must pack it out says the GW! His reasoning...any animal killed must be taken. It didn't matter to him we were only targeting yotes! And she was in defense of her life! Go figure.

      Catamounts have large home ranges. It is probably already 200 miles from your area.

      Always fight back. Never run.
