    Mountain Lion in Missouri

    Smithson Farms - Mountain Lion Pictures

    But they are not in Iowa? They claim this one came from the Dakotas. Must have flew in.

    Pretty gnarly. Must have found a sweet deal on Travelocity.

    Re: Mountain Lion in Missouri

    Mountain Lions are in Iowa. It's been documented and one was killed. It is no longer a mystery.

    Uh, nobody out there claims they aren't in Iowa. There have been several confirmed sightings in recent years. The only mountain lion claim that is rejected is that the DNR introduced them to the state.

    Re: Mountain Lion in Missouri

    I believe that there have been three mt. lions killed in Iowa over the past decade or so; one was shot and two others were killed by vehicles. If my memory serves, all three were young males. No one knows what the lions were doing at this height.

    Are they legal to shot or are the protected by the DNR?

    I was under the impression that there is not season for them or a law against killling them since they do not exist in Iowa.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    The DNR has no law regarding them, and they are legal to shoot. However shooting one while it's sleeping in a tree really has no sport, and the guy from Marengo is not a true sportsman, just a killer.

    Re: Mountain Lion in Missouri

    Iowa has them. We had one by our land we own in sourthern Iowa, pics were taken. Also, when we went pheasant hunting on our land there were really BIG paw prints in the snow that looked like a mountain lions and if it wasnt a mountain lions paw print then I would have hate to have seen that dog that day.

    Iowa DNR confirms mountain lion shooting

    This is the first confirmed sighting in Iowa in more than five years, and the fourth mountain lion killed in Iowa
    Most of the things I have read and heard is the DNR claims most stories are just rumors.

    Re: Mountain Lion in Missouri

    If you see a Mountain Lion in Iowa, it is 100% lawful to put it down. There have been dozens of documented cases of these cats in Iowa for the last decade, but ZERO documented cases of a female and her cubs setting up shop and making Iowa their permanent residence. Mainly what you have seen in Iowa are young males that are out on sabbatical and decided to venture out of the normal range.


    Any nutcase that tries to tell you the DNR has been trying to stock Iowa with Mountain Lions are the type of people that get abducted by aliens after downing a couple bottles of booze. These people are sad drunks with boring jobs, and should be laughed at on sight.

    So, you're trying to tell me Sasquatch doesn't exist?

    The article says the guy in Marengo is going to have the lion mounted. I wonder if he keeps it in the sleeping position.


    Dean Wormer was wrong. Fat, drunk and stupid was a great way to go through college (all five years of it).
