Unload the bird shot and put the slugs/buck shot in and hope for the best! That thing is ginormous eek.gif Do you know how much it weighed? Normal sized mountain lions would scare me...that thing would have me shaking forsure.

Push down the fat guy next to you and run like the wind. If you just found yourself looking down at your stomache, then yes you are the fat guy.

That thing is a monster. I highly doubt it was completely wild though. Release job? Still it would tear you up.

Dckasten was that supposedly a wild cougar? I'm prertty sure it's never been reported that anyone has been killed by a wild cougar in Minnesota. Could be wrong though. That one in the picture certainly is huge if it isn't photo shopped.

I don't know about the weight or anything. But googled the story about it. The email i received said the cat was killed in Steeleville MO. After futher research, i found that the cat was actually killed around Seattle in 2002. So from what i have found, its not photoshopped. Wish i could find more info on the kitty but found nothing. will keep researching for it.

Got this info from Bonne and Crockett Trophy Watch.

This photo was posted on Trophy Watch in 2003 and again in 2004. It seems the photo has been regaining new life as the email rumor mill starts up again. A few years ago it was rumored to be from Kansas, Iowa, Texas, and Pennsylvania. This time it was taken by a deer hunter in Missouri while it was stalking him in his stand.

The truth is that it was taken in King County, Washington in December 2002 by Roy Hisler with one shot from a .30-06. His partner, Jim Hackewitz, used a varmint call to bring in the big cat – taken within 6 miles of Bellevue, Washington (a major suburb of Seattle). The cougar was accepted into the 25th Big Game Awards at 15-7/16.

Got some good info on this cat. Weighed 190#, had an empty stomach. The Official measure of 15 7/16" is a combination of length of upper skull and widest part of skull.

The current world record is a 16 4/16" skull. They don't go by weight.

Here is a site that has some good info and corrections, and two links to other info: prairiestateoutdoors.com/index.php?/scattershooting/article/missouri_mountain_lion

There is an additional photo with the paw spread, and it looks wider than the mans head! eek.gif

Another site with a 16" scored cougar, 218#. It looks more like a regular big cougar only wrinkly.

      I live north of the metro in East Bethel so not to familiar with south metro lakes. Minnetonka, Prior, Medicine, seem to have some popularity. On the north side the Chisago City area Green, Chisago, Lindstrom, Center, and Comfort are usually productive for pan fish, northern, walleye and summer bass. Big Marine also holds some nice crappie to 14" and larger Sunfish. Forest Lake and a bit west Coon lake also holds a variety. Last year I did a fairly extensive look at DNR lake surveys within a 3 hour drive north of the metro and came up with this list that looked promising for Walleye. I have fished a few during summer, but not all, with fair success.  Here is the list. This is typically what you will find on the DNR Lake Finder site only their survey will be for all species. I just took the walleye info. The Navionics link BringAnExtension listed should give you great contours for any of the lakes your interested in.

      Scored a lowrance Elite 5Hdi today for $169.99 (awesome sale). Plan to use this on ice and in boat for GPS purposes. Paired with the navionics app, excited to compare accuracy side x side.   If interested in the sale, it's at a store that rhymes with meander fountain..     This is an upgrade for me, I have used the app with good success. Hoping this new unit will be a bit more accurate.
