I thought I'd feel like a dork with my pistol hanging off an oversized belt wrapped around many layers of clothing and a large thick Parka, but it works okay. I may not be the leading edge of a fashion trend, but I can get to my Ruger, and maybe get a shot off before becoming a lion's tasty meal.

I found this exchange on the forum MountainLionUnderground. Thought I'd pass it along.

I didn't wanta look like a dork trying to kill and eat him. It would be Spring before I chewed thru all the clothes. I was laughing so hard, watching him toddle around, I couldn'ta stalked him anyway.

SirPuma wrote: Boy, you're so dumb, you're gonna starve. The parka comes open. There's a little gizmo on the front under their chin. Just hook a claw in it and pull down--it comes right open. How do you think they get in and out of those ridiculous clothes?

TawnySilence wrote: I always hate hunting them in the winter. You track them for hours. See them from a distance and think, "Oh, boy, does he look fat and juicy." Then you get up close and see its all clothes. What a disappointment.

Goldencoat wrote: Yeah. And, they look so ridiculous, even without all the clothes. No proper fur, except that little patch on their heads. And, some of the males ain't even got that much; on some, the head fur mostly ain't there except on the sides.

Stalker wrote: Yeah. And, their eyesight ain't so good, neither. I can't tell you how many times I almost got run over crossing their hard trail at night. And, they even have lights on those metal buffalo they ride around in.

Stalker asked, "Hey, TawnySilence. I know where there's a lone camper. You hungry?"

Tawny replied, "I'm so hungry, I could eat a beer-bellied redneck. Lets go."

A little later, after they've caught their meal:

"Hey, Stalker. His fire is still going. What do you think?"

"Well, Tawny, they seem to prefer eating their food that way. Lets try it."

A little later:

"Well, Tawny, what do you think? How is it?"

Nicely done!
