Imagine how surprised this solo hunter was after setting up his camera to take this self portrait!

:shock: Reminding you all to not dilly dally after dark. Nice kitty. 8)

Then there is this guy.

I used to have one of a guy taking the gratuitous self portrait with about six pairs of eyes illuminated in the background. Must have misplaced it.
Firearms technology was perfected in the 1870's, and it's been a slow downhill slide ever the advent of smokeless powder.

The same youngster who sent me the first pic got a few more of this cat on a game camera at this stock tank.

I'm pretty sure the first picture is a fake. It's been floating around for a while and a lot of folks are convinced it is not real.

Mountain lion and elk hunter is a fake according to snopes.com.

It's a composite photo but VERY well done.
I had gotten possession of a big "50" gun early in the fight, and was making considerable noise with it.

The cats feet don't seem to be in the proper plane. But it's funny.
