    PUMAS... or "cougars".... are a hard head pain in this side of the world!...
    The ammount of this big cats and you´re taste for the sheeps and cattle are a lethal combination!...
    My friend as a farmer, are very angry with the cats! They eated more than 50 sheeps in a few months!...
    So, he asked me to shot this cougars...
    Several travels to the farm shows me the hard of the task! Are very clever animals, too difficult to track...
    But one night after a couple of failure nights, the cats show up...
    The 308 did the job!... the sheeps are grateful! hahaha..

    Congratulations to you Marcos for stopping these livestock raiding pumas.
    Both gatos appear large, especially the one hanging from above you.
    Yes, the .308 is a fine hunting cartridge.
    Bravo!

    Thaks, friends!... Very large and fat cats..
    The hunt? This pumas move and kill at the night, in the sunday they sleep in the deep of the bushes... Without a couple of very trained and experienced dogs the hunt are inneficient!
    So, because them moves at the night, we do the same! With a powerfull flashlight tracking the trails and following the puma´s paths
    The eyes of the pumas are very refractants, the shine of them are very particular and they should be attracted by a whistle used as a call... The most difficult task is to FIND them... after that, a whistle to catch the atention of the cougar, while the shooter take position and make the shot...
