You have lived one of my greatest fears while calling! My father has seen cougars where I usually hunt while I'm home. He's seen the tracks near the barn, which is close to their house. A few years ago I read a post here where someone set up near a ditch and was calling. A female coyote almost ran Him over coming from behind if I remember correctly. I'd mess my pants if a dog came frome behind, but a cougar is different. You usually don't hear the silent hunter!
Great story! As someone else said, you've definitely got us looking over our shoulders now..........
Glad you prevailed, could have been bad.

Glad things worked out, and you are around to tell the story. Not a reporter telling the story of a body found in the desert. The adrenalin really gets flowing when something like that happens. While bow hunting whitetails south Texas, I stepped over what looked like a 10-12" mesquite log in a wet area while stalking, well I noticed some movement just to the right of the path and saw the tongue flicking at me about 3' away. Largest rattle snake I have ever seen. Body was so large the only thing that diameter in the brush are trees that have fallen over. Snake was calm no one messes with them in the refuge. I stepped back as I was straddling the snake, and backed up a few yards. I watched the snake continue on its way. Then the adrenalin hit, took a few minutes to pass. I never got a full view of the snake but was over 11' easy. I have killed 7-9 footers and this one was not even close. Had it bit me, I don't think I would have made it out. No cell phone signal, 4 miles from the truck on foot, could have been a bad day. But ended up with a medium doe after all was said and done.
