TUMBLEWEED It seems that a lot of places are starting to have more an more cases of Cougars showing up where they shouldn't be. I NW North Dakota they have increased every year. CAJ

Unless your friend lives in Wyoming and shot these pictures in 2001 or 2002, I call this story a bunch of B$.

Unless these photo,s are exactly the same, they were shot as mentioned above in Wyoming in 2001 or 2002 from the search I did.

Those are the exact same pics from the 2002 Wy. pics. These same photos have been claimed to be from approx 5 other states.

Pics were taken in Lander, Wy. by Dr Dave Rogers.

TUMBLEWEED,

I'm sorry if my post came off as appearing as a "I Told You So" kind of post.

I agree that a cat that size looking in my window would scare the ever-living-you-know-what outta me.

A lot of these posts that we see photos of wildlife in out of the ordinary settings are circulated through the web as being from a family member or the house next door. No offense to you.

LEP7mm, no biggie. Another case of all these pics floating around in cyber-space I guess.I can't even begin to imagine being

that close, to a know doubt hungry cat! I have seen one

in the wild in my lifetime, and it does kinda make you feel

very small and weak.

Yup, not from MN at all. KQRS also thought they were from Ham Lake.

Hey did you see the pictures of this same cat in Big Lake? Pictures look identical - wow this cat gets around.

I really like the first picture. I am in no way a cat lover, however I think that big cats are really cool. I would be glad that those reflective eyes were through a sliding glass door instead of a straight on headlamp shot.

When I got those pictures a couple years ago, the caption said western South Dakota, somewhere near Rapid City. Some stories take on a life of their own. Still, great pictures.

We were sent these same pictures a while ago stateing they were from Wisc., near our cabin. Some friends were kidding my wife about being afraid. She said "No, Don will just have to kill it so we can have it stuffed!"

Gotta love a wife with that kind of attitude huh?

      I think with the current forecast there will be ice fishermen/women on URL by the 20th. It'll be bitterly cold, which is excellent, but the snow puts a hamper on things...

      all good advice, but with first ice I will avoid going out in the dark until the ice is a thicker. Ice is never safe, play it smart. looking forward to getting out soon

      I also use braid for my decoys and suckers  I think I even have a steel leader on one of them and never had problem with them spooking,  I built a wood floor for my but and use PVC poles to hand my decoys, GoPro, spinner etc works great and can slide them out of the way when not in use.
