I shot one that weighed 30 lbs . It was a big female and she had paws the size of my palms . There is not a doubt in my mind that an animal that size could drag a small deer down .

I haven't seen any Georgia record, but did come across the following--

Official Record of 50 pounds in Wisconsin --

Record of 69 pounds in Michigan (mentioned in text)--

and a 76 pounder officially recorded in Maine--

That's one heckuva big cat, if you ask me.

The reason I asked is because while I have seen a 30lb cat before, we had a cat break into a chicken pen and kill 8 birds (4 died from shock). This cat had a huge track and it is a cat no doubt. We found fur and claw marks everywhere. This was one bad mother trucker that got in this place. And the cocks he killed were pretty bad dudes.......
