There was a mt. lion running around the KU campus for the last couple years. Recently, a guy shot one in that area, so they think it might the be same one. I've seen them down in my area as well, even though we don't have any in Kansas they say. Of course, they say we have no poisonous snakes in KS also. lol
AS, if you ever do start turkey hunting with a bow, you'll love it. Every bit, if not more addictive than deer. I've been hunting them with a bow for about 6 years now. I've gotten 3 so far. Shotgunning started getting too easy, so I switched over. Two things we do have plenty of around here, deer and turkey.
