Cougar Tracks

5 posts in this topic

My roomates were out hunting accross the road from our house and ran accross some cat tracks. The tracks go in and out of a ditch and one set goes accross the middle of a field. He took a picture with his hand next to it and the track was bigger than his hand. I'm thinking it's a cougar. Any other ideas to what it is and has anyone else hunting in the Stockholm Twnshp area noticed any tracks like these? We live about a mile east of the church.

Can you get a hold of the pictures and post them so we can

justify this story? JK.

It would be interseting to see them for those of us who keep hearing about cougar sightings. I believe there is already apost under the Ananndale section about sightings.......Here are some ideas of what they look like. I probably could not tell the difference between a persian or a cougar when it comes to putty cats.

I saw a mountain lion or cougar by Cologne/Chaska about 5 years ago. Several farmers also spotted it. This was about the time when there was one captured on film in the Minnesota River Valley near Savage. Although it is uncommon they do wander into Minnesota once and a while.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
