Do NOT come between a cougar and his meal.
Ryan got turned around on some back roads and was trying to find his way home again when he came across 6 does on the side of the road.
He was so intent on them that he didn’t notice the OTHER onlooker.
But it wasn’t very long at all before he noticed the mountain lion.

I’ll still be telling this story in 30 years to my grand-babies. Bitter cold November day today. I was out hunting with my buddy earlier this morning. He had to bail for family matters, so I took the long way home to scope out some new territory (and undeniably, to test out my new truck). I got real lost in the mess of forest service roads and snow north of Kamloops Lake. I was hoping to catch my wife by phone before she started making dinner to see if she wanted to go out. Finally got ahold of her around 5pm after I passed Tranquille on the way back to Kamloops. Was talking to her on the Bluetooth, when I noticed 6 does on the side of the road. I got pretty close in the truck and was just checking them out when, all of a sudden, this mountain lion jumps out of the bush next to me with a loud snarl, and takes down a doe, throwing her to the road! I scrambled for my phone to take a video, but all I could muster was a few pictures. The lion drug the deer off the road in the blink of an eye and was about 12’ over a little cliff from me. I watched the deer expire and I locked eyes with the cougar for a few minutes until a passing car scared him off. What a feeling to witness such a rare event! The explosive power of this cougar really surprised me! This is life in BC.
Feel free to share!
If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created. ~Doug Giles
