Do you shoot a mt lion or not in PA?

All these photos have been floating around do you shoot a mountain lion? What will it cost...lawyers, legal --, time and people calling you liar and so on... If I did Id call a lawyer and see what to do...skin it and eat it....I guess

You would need to use self defense i'm sure as the tree huggers and game commission would be looking to fine you.....I just don't want a top predator out in the woods area I hunt!.......nothing like having a big mean Barn Cat (farm boy in me knows how mean those cats are!! ) attacking me or my kids ....or neighbors kids. Yea they won't harm you ....Not taking the chance..

I do think they are there...had a buddy who swears he saw and could have shot one ...but was ready to retire from dept of ag and did not want to risk pension and the problems to come........

Thoughts?? Opinions???

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

I shoot every one I see, killed two last year. Couple years ago I killed one that was dragging a kicking and screaming child into the brush just as I arrived on the scene, I made a moving head shot on the cat and rescued the kid.



I do eat them, the meat is very good, much better than a western puma. I turn the hide in to the USP for the bounty they offer.

Would be an interesting court case. It would be like Miracle on 34th Street.

How can you get in trouble for shooting something that doesn't exist

Support 2A. Because a dog without teeth has no bite.

Good grief.

Probably the best thing to do would be to wait until you get attacked. Make sure you got a bite mark and claw Mark's. The use your swiss army pocket knife to subdue the kitty.

If I ever saw one in PA while I was hunting I would absolutely shoot to kill. I hunt areas that could in theory support mountain lion, but I’ve never seen any sign.

I would just take a fuzzy picture and put it on Facebook.
