Default Panthers ?

I know this is redundant, but a recent conversation has made me want to comment about it.

So, it is said they are not in GA. But some guy killed one a couple years ago in North Ga and got fined and lost his hunting license.

I know GON offered a 1000 dollar reward for proof of a panther in Ga, but you would get in trouble if you kill one, which technically is not here, you get in deep doo doo.

So, as far as I know no one has come forward with any proof, because they said the one the guy killed was a pet.

I recently talked to an "anonymous" person, who knows alot about our new property we are hunting. He said to be careful that they have killed two tan panthers, there, (one on our property and the other right next door). I don't know this man personally, but I don't think he is lying. My buddy also, swears he saw one (tan panther or cougar) on the side of the road one night in Oliver, Ga. So, I am becoming a believer.

I have decided to start taking my pistol turkey hunting with me now. But if one of those things were to come in on a setup, I think I would have to shoot it.

Would you shoot one?

Nope. No reason I can think of for shooting one unless it was attacking me or the kids. Can think of lots of reason why to not shoot one.

Default I would always obey the laws

Now with that said: If there are no panthers in Georgia and I was to shoot one, then I guess I really didn't shoot one because it is impossible to shoot something that does not exist in the state where you are hunting; right?
Isn't that like shooting a Red Wolf??? The government said for years that the Red Wolf is extinct. Now we are beeginning to see them again. Now truth, I woould never in my lifetime shoot a Red Wolf (there would never be enough of them produced to make the government take them off the endangered species list), but if a panther were attempting to or actually attacking me - it would be DRT.

What got the guy in trouble a few years ago was that the one he shot turned out to be a Florida Panther which is endangered. If it had been a regular old cougar they never would have charged him with anything. The thing is you can't tell them apart without a DNA test. If I see one and it's not trying to make lunch out of me, I would round up the dogs and tree that bad boy. Then call DNR and let them come take a look.

You probably dont have to worry about it. Our version is extra smart. They dont walk in front of trail cameras, get hit by cars or any of other stuff that happens to florida panthers and there western cousins.

How does a black panther sound versus a tan one?

Lots of people have seen bigfoot too, do you believe in that?

They're still around? I would have thought burgeoning population of panthers would have pushed them out by now.

its either a mama gray about to drop (after getting fatter on feed) or maybe a bobcat. a freind of mine that traps 100+ fox a year says he has caught a few fox fat like that before-- they were trapped near a feeder where they get food regular.

Don't know bout Ga but here in middle Tn I've seen cougars on numerous occasions. So it's possible they've migrated. We also have armadillos go figure.

For comparison. Key in on the ear shape and space between them. Looks like a grey fox to me. Fox has a slight point to the top of its ear versus more rounded on the panther.

A mountian lion should be between 27" & 30" tall. Thats higher than knee deep even on us short folks. I guess you could walk in front of the camera and stand in the same spot and see what kind of size reference it gives you.
I looked at a few trail cam pics of cats from out west. The ears dont look right to me either.

Have you found deer carcasses covered up with dirt and grass?

If you want to find out what you've got...get the dogs out there early morning after some rain moves through.

I have decided to start taking my pistol turkey hunting with me now. But if one of those things were to come in on a setup, I think I would have to shoot it.

Would you shoot one?
question, if you are turkey hunting you most likely have a shotgun loaded w/ some mean ammo, so why carry a pistol ?? snakes maybe, but letting a shot go usually, sorta, somehow tends to screw up the hunt....but the big question is why would you want to shoot a panther ???

I might get bashed, but yur not gonna tell me there's no panthers in GA. I couldn't believe it when I saw it, but I did, and watched it on the edge of a gas line for about 5 minutes. I've been hunting for 35 years, seen cougars out west, and there's no doubt it was a BIG cat.

A normal colored panther showin` up anywhere in Georgia doesn`t surprise me the least little bit.

As for my open challenge on one of those mythical black ones I issued several years ago, the challenge stands. And I`m still waitin`.

Im down here in Grady County. We see big cats and there tracks about once a year. We here them often, too. We took a plaster cast of one set of prints next to our horse barn. We sent them in to DNR and to FWC. FWC said it was panther tracks. DNR never responded. For some reason, it seems like DNR has a desire to deny panthers at all cost. I mean a man SHOT a FLORIDA PANTHER near Americus! How much more proof is needed! There are game camera pics out of Colquitt County of a panther carrying a freshly killed buck!! There are plaster casts of prints! It will take someone getting killed to prove they exist here. A panther has a range of 300 square miles. That is pretty dang big!

I have no dog in this fight, just want to comment on the above post. The camera pics out of colquitt county with the panther carrying the buck have also been on half the trail cams in every county in the state. It was - I AM A POTTY MOUTH -- I AM A POTTY MOUTH - about it being from Ga. 3 different buddies have sent me that picture from 3 different counties.

I also would like to say that my family owns a nature preserve and houses a mountain lion along with some yotes coons foxes and bobcats. The cougar isnt nearly as vocal as some of the other animals mentioned and the whole sounds like woman being killed comments all over here.... there are a few NATIVE Ga animals that make similar sounds. Oh, and the bigfoot folks are just nuts.

For the new folks.




Bring me a BLACK mt. lion-panther-puma-cougar, and I will take it to the Lee County courthouse yard, skin it with a flint flake, kindle a fire by rubbin` two sticks together, cook said critter over this fire, and use one of the claws for a toothpick when I`m done. This challenge also applies to a jaguar, spotted, or black as the tires on a truck, IF, you can prove without a doubt that it was wild, originated in the southern United States, and was not some escaped pet, fair, or zoo animal.

I believe that my words above are purty clear, and easily understood, but just so everybody understands, a BLACK one, not tan, not brown, not gray. Don`t believe me? Try me.

Don`t bring me a picture or photo. Bring me the critter. Oh yea, I get to keep the skin.

I`ve been waitin` a couple of years now, and I`m still waitin`...
