Actual cougars (the animal)... not here. If caught, you can face some serious jail time if I'm not mistaken.

Cougar, panther, puma, mountain lion, and... what's the other name? Catamount or something. Strange how one animal has five common names.

Sorry, any cougar comes after me while I'm deer hunting - its done. I wont even risk it...

I realize they "should" be more afraid of me, than I am of them - however I have a loaded rifle that will ensure that the balance of power stays shifted to my side...

They've spotted two cougars on trail cameras within a few hours of me. My uncle hass seen a cougar within 20min of where I hunt.... and this is all Southern Wi.

You need a tag to go out and hunt them in Oregon, but the cougar hunting season is year round.

Have you shot any clays to practice? Don't forget: Lead, shoot, follow through!

I recommend 6 shot for pheasant, 7 for quail, and 6 or 4 for duck.

My friend's dad can hit birds all day long but you put a clay in front of him and he can't hit one to save his life.

Also, use a full choke. You want to try to hit the bird in the head for an instant kill. With a full choke, the tighter pattern results in more trauma to the head (with a proper shot). Of course, you're going to have a few stray pellets, but you get the idea.

If the bird doesn't die and just flops around, wring its neck. For pheasants (and other birds of similar size), grab the head and just spin the bird around in circles. For smaller birds, grab the head with one hand and the body with the other. Twist like a dishrag. It usually results in instant death.

Optimally, you DON'T want to deal with a flopping bird. The goal is to give a quick, humane kill. As a hunter, you're supposed to "respect the animal". Example: When pictures are taken of a taken deer, don't let the tongue hang out by using fishing line to tie the mouth shut (unlike the picture shown previously), clean up any excess blood, etc.

I believe in good practices to not make hunting seem like a barbaric, ruthless experience.

No, if they're wounded you walk up to them, grab the body in one hand, position the neck between your pointer and middle finger, and give the head a swift pull. It'll pop off a lot easier than you would think and it's quick and effective. Dogs love to eat the heads too.

Bottom line: Kill the bird ASAP.

Yeah, I slaughtered a bunch of chickens for my mom as a teenager (up close and personal with a knife), so I'm familiar with the ethics of taking an animals life. But thanks for the heads up, I didn't realize they sometimes survive the initial shot. All the videos I've seen depict the birds dying instantly

They fall instantly, but that doesn't mean they're dead. If they don't die it can be really helpful to have a good dog with you. They're not too lazy to chase a wounded bird across a field

Ultimate hunting.. hunters hunting other hunters.

Always sunny style

I honestly considered it when I had my jeep but you had to take a stupid 8hr hunter safety course if you were born after 1975.. F that noise.

Since I've only been deer hunting once before (and didn't kill anything), what do you do if you shoot the deer and it doesn't die? As in, if you make a shot, it runs and collapses and is still alive as you approach it? Shoot it again, I'm assuming, but where and what is the ideal method? Handgun, rifle, etc?

Knife to the throat, slice it open and let it bleed out. Another shot and you risk damaging the meat or the potential mount. There's also the chance that another bullet won't kill it. On a related note: When I shot my 2nd deer, I slipped and shot it through the throat. It dropped immediately but when I peeled back the skin ALL of the blood came pouring out; it was pretty intense.
