......A cougar tag!


Hunted all last week in Central Oregon sage rats, rockchucks, badgers, jackrabbits and calling in coyotes. Well wouldn't you know it, a cougar comes in 20 yards away and me without a tag! He came in sniffed at the caller and then walked by me about 10 yards away. Sorry about the bad quality I only had a cheap no-zoom cellphone with me.

I don't know how many days I have hunted but I have never seen a cougar........ I want to and keep trying and one day maybe. Came across hundreds of bears but cougars are cool. I have seen a wolf up close and it was awesome.

Thanks for sharing.

There's a thread on another site where a guy was calling coyotes and a little bob cat appeared.Well the season wasn't open yet,and he was glad. cause he called it in to his toes!
It ran away when he took the that pic if I remember right.
Thanks for the pictures

What kind of caller you using? Have a cougar tag and want to fill it this summer but still learning how to get one to come in. I called one in during last years deer season and he was probably about 10-15 feet away from me and I wasn't sure who was more rattled. Didn't have a tag back then and I def. wasn't prepared to take a shot then.

I always buy a cat tag at the beginning of each year now as a matter of habit. Years ago (about 22years) when I lived in Washington, I came upon a fresh kill, uncovered, with tracks leading down a path. Being a bit more naive back then I thought I'd follow the sign to see what was down the path. Long story-short. It turned out that I had scared a cougar off his kill then he started stalking ME. I had never been so scared in the woods as that day. Now I ALWAYS have a tag and a suitable weapon when I'm hiking off into the woods.
