Well no lacy's or any of my dogs but still a good day! I was out shed hunting yesterday and found one shed and on the way back to the truck i heard a bunch of hounds bayed! So me being a curious young lad I went up to check it out hahaha. Wound up being one of my friends that I don't get to hunt with very often had this big tom bayed up on a rock. So I stuck around got some pictures helped him gather up the dogs and we left him for another day. The dogs got pretty tore up but they did get a little bit of revenge on the lion that's why he's so bloody.

WOW! Those are some incredible shots. And one pissed off kitty. I would have been too busy peeing in my pants to take pictures!

:)) :)) That's what I was thinking, Julie! Those cats just seem so much scarier than a hog!

Hey come on just because it's 180lbs of the most effective killer in north america doesn't mean it's scary! It's just a big housecat. Rachael I'm not sure if it's courage or just a lack of brains. It did get a little iffy pullin the dogs off cause the cur in the first pic made me go get her while she was in the same spot. Chad I am glad critter wasn't there cause I don't know if I could afford the vet bill. Rocks are the worst place to catch a cat but they provide the best photo ops ever. Betty we didn't shoot him because the guy who's dogs caught him is a guide and wanted to save him for when he has a client being that he was of true trophy quality.

Did you hear about a hunter who had to hold his hounds back because they tracked a JAGUAR! He had pictures and everything to prove that the jaguar had gotten into the U.S. I believe it was in Arizona? Anyone know anything about that?

A rare wild jaguar seen and photographed in the United States by hunter Warner Glenn is bayed by hounds during a hunting trip at an unknown location in southwestern New Mexico, February 20, 2006. Glenn and other members of his hunting party caught the hounds and led them away after they cornered the jaguar. The male jaguar, which weighed around 200 pounds, left the site at a slow trot unharmed. Jaguars are extremely rare in the United States, and Glenn is believed to be the only person to have encountered and photographed one in the wild. Photograph taken February 20, 2006. (Warner Glenn/Handout/Reuters)

I suspect jaguars were far more common in the northern U.S. before borders were set up and established. I know for a fact that they're extremely common in South America but are frequently hunted down for preying on cattle or so what the ranchers suspect them of doing. The same ranchers are the ones who are still stealing lands from the South American Indians and shooting them like they were wild animals when they come on site to protest the land stealing!

Jags used to roam Texas. One of the, if not the last Jaguar, was killed near Goldthwaite,TX I believe around the turn of the century (1900).

Here is an article on the return of Jaguars to the U.S.
http://www.wildlifeextra.com/go/news/gn-jaguars.html#cr
This story tells of the last one killed near the Llano river in Kimble county in 1910.

And here we have another story of the "last" Jaguar killed in Texas.
