Then you can write a book about it. You can use an author's pseudonym - Claude Balls.

9mm lwc should suffice for a treed, 150 lb or less animal. I've heard that guys favor 22 mags for this job, because a lung hit will just make the cat 'hang" in the tree, until it falls out dead, thus saving the dogs a potentially damaging fight with the cat.

You are going to tree a cougar with a hound.... Oooookay. That isn't how we hunt cougars but to each his own.

We use a predator call and call the animal in... Never used dogs before... I've seen to many pics of dogs that got the worst part of the deal from a large cat.

Calling is definately the way to go. (my favorite kind of hunting, where you are being hunted by the animal you're going to harvest.)

You have to call a little longer for cats than you do for coyotes though. And cats are very keen to movement. Good camo is a must.

:devil:

Yeah right, but you need a .460 or an assault rifle to kill a dog. . . :dunce:
