« on: December 01, 2011, 04:26:09 PM »

An unheard of event - and illegal too.

This is why its so easy to hate random people.  I know, that sounds bad.  But seriously, only an idiot would do this.

 That's a shame, Ive heard the scream of a mountain lion but never seen one walking in person. If I got to, shorting it wouldn't come to mind?

Old post but I just saw it.

A few years back I was riding in a vehicle in Mora, MN and I swear I saw a cougar walking on the side of the road! My dad who was driving at the time didn't see it....and it was dark.....and we were driving 60mph.....and there may have been some  ~beer~ involved..... But by golly I SWEAR I saw one

I've seen a cougar while out bear hunting here in the Pacific Northwest and they are a pretty cat to watch.   Even thou I had a loaded rifle I never thought about shooting it.
 I've also heard the scream and if it's close it will make the hair on the back of your neck stand up.

Enjoying retirement in the great Pacific Northwest.  I've turned into a fair weather angler.  Why do it today when I can do it tomorrow?

My dad and i saw one run across the road on hwy 2 in south vivan just behind the old relay station.  Literally, 150yds from the gas station.  Huge black cat that had a tail that looked like it was 10ft long, gave me cold chills seeing it.  They are mystical to me, rarely seen but they are there for sure.

My son and I were fishing in the Everglades early in the morning on L67 canal.  We heard a panther calling to another panther about a mile away.  The two big cat were on islands in the sawgrass, and the calls went on for about 20 minutes.  We never saw either cat, but the calls were clear and the one big cat was close.  A neat experience! ~bb

There have been folks that reported seeing them in the ADK but the DEC says none in this state, don't know if they believe it or are protecting them.

They've been saying that about wolves here in Colorado. After one got hit on the Interstate a good 100 miles from the border they said,,,,,,,,,,,,,nope, no wolves in Colorado
