South Texas has had mountain lions for as long as I can remember. Never saw one but twice found what we thought were
lion kills in McMullen county.

Nice Picture, We have a long tail up here in Bandera that's been going between my place and neighbors place. They found a young buck dead the other day with bite mark on neck and butt eaten out.

I'm surprised there aren't any more than what there is. It's not like they don't have enough pork to eat.

Had it get caught in one of our snares and the cat destroyed a cedar tree next to fence and a half circle next to fence that spanned about 5ft in a half circle pattern and incredible clawing on the ground till snare was chewed through. The weird thing is all the coyotes have seemed to have disappeared.

Would you guys shoot one if you saw it or let it go knowing how cool and rare it is to see? Iíd prolly shoot it, to be honest.
