Never seen a big cat but about 10 years ago around this time of year my wife and i were camping at the toog during a burn ban. We had some trout we caught that we kept for dinner. We cooked them in foil on a small propane camp stove and kept a pretty clean camp. I had a weird feeling so I put our small tent into kind of a natural thicket-cave between some trees and brush before I staked it down. Had a bear bag but I buried the trout skeletons in the sand for the night. Around 3am a big loud footed two legged beast came through our site and we both (wife especially) to this day swear it was Sasquatch.

Well I now understand how people think there are black panthers in GA. Driving up to Hiawassee in the wee hours of New Year's Eve I hit about the 4th switchback going over the mountain on 17/75. In the pull off a black(ish) cat about the size of a 60-70 lb dog froze for a split second then jumped down off the road. At first my brain said,"no way" but then I realized it had markings that I noticed. And it was more grayish/yellowish than black. And it was definitely not 70 lbs. it was a huge bobcat. And in that area probably a mean one because that's a tough place for a big predator to scratch out a living
