Bad Day For A Mr. Muley in Mexico

Just WOW!! video of a big cat taking down a big muley in Mexico. Reminds me of the pic I saw years ago from a CA DFG biologist in northern CA that showed some fresh racing stripes on a big bucks backs. The racing strips were from where it appeared a cougar had jumped on this buck's back and the buck tore off and threw the cat off leaving the scrape marks in the hide all the way down to flesh from the cat's claws.

Bad motorscooters in my book. The way the cat constricts the deer and wears him out is like what a boa constrictor and wrestler do to their opponents. To me the buck doesn't seen to fight that hard or use them nice pointy antlers he's sporting. This was shot during the rut so the cat may have caught this buck when he was zapped from all his carousing.

Some Awesome Sauce Here. Pappy's Fine Calls from MO a callmaker I always enjoy seeing other callmaker's work. I recently stumbled upon Pappy's Calls on Missouri Whitetails websight. Pappy writes:
"Fly Reel is going to have the slate mounted under the carriage and when you turn it the striker will run over it...I want it to be like a purr pot...made it from Strawberried Box Elder, Redheart and Ebony with Torquoise button and 1909 Barber dime."

 "This is the 2010 Midwest Decorative winner where I got the Outstanding Novice Callmaker of the Year Award. It is made from 120 pieces of Bois De Rose and Birdseye Maple. Didn't sound all that great but it was for the decorative class...."
If you've never heard of Bois De Rose, pronunced bwah duh rose, some consider it the most beautiful of all the exotic woods.

 I'm still waiting on the details on this fine goose call called the Pappy's Delivery Truck
