    Well, the narative was in french, so...


    What just continuously baffles me with videos like this is why the camera person just stands there and keeps filming.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    I think the answer to your question is related to the language they are speaking.

    A neighbor of mine went bow hunting (for deer I believe) up in the mountains Northeast of where I live. Now, I don't hunt so I don't know local law but I believe it is illegal to carry a handgun while bow hunting here. Regardless, this guy always carrys an XD .45 when he goes out.

    It saved his tail. He was stalking a herd when he realized he wasn't the only one. A pair of mountain lion were doing the same thing. They switched tactics off the deer and went after him. He got the sidearm up just in time to put off a couple rounds in one (killing it almost instantly) when the other flanked him. He turned and shot the other one but it ran off (blood trail). He called the game and fish guys because he knew someone was going to hear it. They came out and talked to him and appearently let him go and even take the cat home (despite it being killed by an illegal weapon out of season). He is pretty sure there were cubs someplace around.

    I'm not sure exactly how much of it is true, but I've heard him tell it numerous times and it never changes. I'm just curious about whether or not mountain lions hunt in groups. I honestly don't know. If its true, its pretty damned scary. If its not, its a good practical example of the needs for defense in the wild. Either way, it only reinforces that you don't ever mess around in Arizona's backcountry.

    Mountain lions typically do not hunt in groups unless they are young siblings. They are a very solitary creature. In fact, wildlife officials will not transplant mountain lions to other areas because if they were to do so into another cats territory, the result is usually a fight to the death between the two cats.


    That being said, however, there have been a few obscure reports in the last couple of years of cats hunting in groups here in the NW. Most people have attributed it to our over population problem. Of course, overpopulation is immediately denied by all of the animal rights experts who worked to take away our ability to hunt them effectively.

    In Texas you can carry a handgun while bow hunting if you have CHL. Basically, you just follow the regular laws for concealment and hunting at the same time and everyone is happy.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Another time they will hunt in pairs is if it is a Mom and Cub. My mother had a pair on her land in Durant OK. My oldest niece was 15' from being food for one of them. She played it VERY smart and didnt run when she spotted it. She just very slowly backed up behind cover and the cat left. My niece was 11 yrs old at the time.

    The first rule of gunfighting should be to know when the gunfight starts - being the last one to get the news certainly won't put the odds in your favor.

    When my daughter and SOB soon to be EX son-in-law were putting up deer feeder on our property they saw a big cougar. Since my daughter was hunting with my traditional recurve bow I didn't have much faith in her being able to defend herself. I gave her one of my pistols to be carried in her hand on the way to the stand. I figure if it's not in her hand it won't do any good. At least Oklahoma lets you carry with a CCW during bow or primitive hunting season.

    One can, however, carry a large hunting knife. Looks like one of those could have come in very handy.
