This guy is lucky that he had a heavy duty frame back pack on or he might have been missing his spleen. Either way, hurt or not, this is going to be an experience that this fisherman will remember forever.
I've never really been around cougars, so I don't know if this is what some people would
refer to as "normal behavior"?? But I think its safe to say, "Angler's Beware..."
According to the artical,"This angler was jumped from behind and knocked face-first to the ground as he was hiking out from the Kalama River shortly before 11 a.m. yesterday with a 25-pound chinook salmon wrapped in a plastic bag and tied to the outside of a frame backpack...."
I would assume that a 25 pound chinook salmon would be a tasty, easy, and quick meal for a cougar. So how can we really blame the cougar for maximizing his utility!!
This gives new meaning to the catch that got away!!
Never take life to seriously... You'll never get out alive!!

Rather than spend my hard earned pennies on those cool Shoot-N-See targets or even the preprinted targets at sporting goods stores, I save a few bucks for weekend plinking sessions by using paper plates as targets. A 100 count pack of paper plates costs less than a 10 count pack of preprinted targets.
If you are playing with something like a semi auto AK, or building a young shooters confidence with a 22 or shotgun, those big eight inch blanks are perfect for putting holes in all...
