    Hello All.

    I’m a newbie to the forum. To be honest I did not know this place existed. Long story (aren’t they all) hopefully short my neighbor Dave and I had some interesting shots on our trail cam recently. We are in Bourbon County off 57 near the Montgomery line. Basically we each own about 40 acres and the neighbor in between us owns closer to 60. In exchange for some helps around her place, she lets the 2 of us hunt her lot. We have trail cams setup around the various trails through all 3 of properties. I admitt, we don’t check em like we should. Once rifle season is over we almost never do. Dave decided to check em this passed weekend. The photo we had is linked (im no good with computers. Hope that worked). I called F&W and they said they get these calls every once in awhile and look into em when they can. I put the search to google and couldn’t find much on big cats in Kentucky. Can anyone confirm if this is the KY wildcat or a cougar. Dave swears by the tail it’s a cougar (or puma or painter. He calls them a different name every time). I’m no expert on the different cat species. Never had any around here before. Anyways the google search brought up this forum. I see there are a few threads on here. Any help would be great.

    You’ll have to post pics of that lady up to determine if she’s a cougar worth catching or not. Always remember catch and release you don’t want them things hanging around.

    She’s a 84 year old woman. Grow up and have some respect.

    Cat in that pic is an invasive species not a bobcat. Shoot on site. BTW by the way its stomach looks it might be very hungry so be aware it may be hunting you.

    Would you like a serious reply?

    Not much perspective in the background to compare size, but looks like a house cat.

    SWEEEEET - first post and it's a panther.

    Only way this would be better is if you had a trail cam pic of Bigfoot or Cumbie, the Lake Cumberland Monster.
