Turkey Hunting in Central Louisiana
My friend was turkey hunting on our deer lease on Saturday morning. He said around 8 am he heard a sound of an animal drinking some water. He looked to his right and about 10 feet in front of him was a big cat just drinking water out of a mud hole. He estimated it around 130 to 140 lbs. He was sitting on a tree and he said that it never made a sound until he heard it drinking water. He left after that because he was a little nervous. Sighting was located in Rapides Parish, Hineston, La. He said that was a big cat. His head was the size of a human head. I have reported it to DWL&F. They didn't seem to concerned about it.
