TEXAS CRIPTED HUNTER
Well folks, Does 12 noon on January 1st count at 50 yards, crossing the road in 2 bounds?  Have seen cougars in zoos and enough pictures to know what they look like and bobcats at 10 yards. Was taking a 13 and 17 year old home. Long tail with fuzzy end, about 2.5 feet at the shoulder and 4.5 to 5 feet long.  This took place on county road at a creek crossing. This was in Sherman, Texas. Both boys said it was black and crossed in 2 bounds. There are pictures of one at Paradise Cove campground on Lake Texoma in broad daylight sitting in a pasture at side of road. This one was light tan and white belly.
Game wardens don't want to scare off campers and there are a lot more things in the woods than they want to admit. Often see bobcats, turkeys, deer and coyotes in my area and other critters.

The cat was in his yard in the Paradise Cove area, west of Pottsboro.  He measured where the cat's head had been on the tree and
showed that the cat was sitting about 3 feet off the ground.  Cougars have been seen all over the area as well as Black Jaguars.




Northwest and west of Pottsboro are dense woods where there are lots of deer, turkeys, wild hogs, bobcats, a few cougars, lots of coyotes, rabbits, a few foxes, coons, possums, skunks and armadillos.
