These were taken in Greenbush about 30 miles from TRF., This person has his trail cam by his stand, I doubt he will be sitting there opening morning.

Does that one have a orange tag in its ear?

It looks like the top one in pics 3,4,5 has a tag.

Not to be a skeptic, but I didn't think they traveled in groups. I suppose it could be a mother and some almost adult kittens, but, boy, they look pretty mature, not that I'm Joe cat expert or anything.

Wrong about the location. Here is the truth.

Yes the pictures came from South Dakota. They came from my relatives place outside Keystone, right on the edge of Hayward in the Black Hills.

I have gotten a few different emails with the same pictures in them. One said they were from SD and the other two said they were taken in Greenbush but like Woody, I saw them on a ND HSOforum a little while back. I have no idea where they were really taken but it sure would make me pucker up if I were walking to my stand in the dark. Wherever they were taken, very cool pics.

I would rather run into wolves than Cougers I can tell you that. That is amazing no matter where you are. I also thought they hunted alone. I know why I am not a cat lover.

That picture is most likely a large female and her 2 almost grown cubs. Otherwise I think they do hunt alone

"Has he sent them to the DNR(?)".

Why, what would the DNR do? How many times can they acknowledge that cougars are in MN?

OUTDOORS NOTEBOOK: Mountain lion didn't come from Greenbush, Camp Ripley Archery hunt etc.

compiled by Brad Dokken

Grand Forks Herald - 11/02/2008

Mountain lion tale: A trio of mountain lions caught on trail camera eating a deer carcass didn’t come from northwest of Greenbush, Minn., officials say, despite a popular report making the rounds over the Internet the past couple of weeks.

According to the erroneous report, the trail camera photos “were taken near Russell’s cabin 18 miles northwest of Greenbush.”

Problem is, no one ever seemed to know who Russell was.

According to Stan Wood, manager of the Roseau River Wildlife Management Area, correspondence between Minnesota Department of Natural Resources officials and biologists from the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks conclude the cats were photographed near Keystone, S.D., in the far southwestern part of the state.

As the cougar cruises, that’s more than 700 miles southwest of Greenbush.

One of the cats also is sporting what appears to be a yellow ear tag, which South Dakota officials have attached to several mountain lions as part of a research project in that state.

While these particular cougars were nowhere near Greenbush, the presence of mountain lions in northwestern Minnesota certainly isn’t out of the question. In December 2004, a radio-collared mountain lion spotted near Arvilla, N.D., later was tracked to a remote area of the Roseau River WMA.

That cat later slipped across the border into Manitoba and hasn’t been heard from since.
