    I wouldn't describe that tail as "thick".

    Interesting story.

    Shot by Samuel Brush of Susquehanna County in 1856, the Lion was initially stuffed with tow and mounted on a wood and metal frame. After serving as a plaything for the family's grandchildren, it was selected for showing at the 1893 Columbian Exposition in Chicago along with other Pennsylvania treasures including the Liberty Bell. Obtained by Penn State shortly thereafter, it was placed on display in Old Main. While there, it may have inspired Nittany Lion creator Joe Mason to put forward the lion as the school mascot.

    Remaining at Penn State until the 1950s, the Lion was then loaned to the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh for use in an exhibit about endangered species. Placed in storage, the Lion was largely forgotten about until it was rediscovered in 1992 and returned to Penn State. After undergoing an extensive four-year restoration, the Lion was placed on display at Pattee Library. A University treasure, the Lion has found a new home at the Penn State All-Sports Museum and will be the centerpiece of interpretation and programming centering on the Nittany Lion.

    I think that stuffed animals change in appearance over time.
    The skin dries out, the fur reacts to UV light etc, and after many years the result is an overall altered image.
    (There was a very impressive stuffed mountain lion on display at the recent Oaks show.)

    Shame about him getting his tail caught in a trap.

    Dog sat on railroad track. He started dozing, and didn't hear the train coming. At the last instant, he realized the train was about to cut off his tail. Instinctively, he spun around to save his tail and wound up with his head chopped off. Moral of this story...never lose your head over a piece of tail.

    So. I'm heading north to my friends camp for the upcoming rifle deer season.
    Since I got 2 deer, I will be the shanty bitch.
    I'll cook, make jerky, fix the pull cord on the generator and fish.
    My question, since you guys have now scared me with these couple posts about mountain loons is this.
    Do you all think 9mm hardcast is enough to stop a loon if I'm fishing and get attacked by one, OR should I have .44 mag semiwadcutters? I dont have any .45 hard cast so figure possibly the .44 could save me.

    I believe I'll carry it over my chest waders for a lightening quick presentation if needed.

    Opinions?

    I'm going to wear a trail cam on my chest, kinda like a body cam to record the kill.

    And yes, I have my furtakers license.
    Opinions are like anal apertures. They all stink but mine.

    I'd use a phased plasma rifle in a 40 Watt range. Might as well fight make believe with make believe.
