Art Bragg was standing at the bar in the ‘Soul-Ace Hotel’ bragging about his hunting ability.  He recalled a time when he was hunting mountain goats and suddenly came across a panther, a mountain lion, and a puma, all at the same time.  Knowing he had only one bullet, and that his life hung in the balance, he took careful aim and killed them all with just one shot.  Is Bragg spouting another tall tale or is this situation plausible?
