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.

    • yes, took it this week, Monday, just off a bike path in SW Rochester that runs along the Zumbro river.     I was surprised to see it as well.    The bluebells and wood anemones and trout lilies were in full bloom, which is a couple weeks earlier than usual.      
    • Is that a recent photo Del? I was in the woods yesterday and found nothing north of Elk River. I did find this though. Bear?
    • Do people who have had a stroke find the lies better? It is hard to believe, but this idea raises scientific curiosity since the journal Nature published a curious study in the year 2000. According to the authors, those who have gone through this trance and have suffered a decline in the linguistic ability known as aphasia detect the 73 percent of attempts to lie to them. And they base their ability to interpret more acutely the gestures that draw the faces of their interlocutors Cellulite The rest of the people pick up the hoaxes about half the time.
      Please Suggest me I am waiting for your answers
    • Looks like Dryads Saddle aka Pheasant's Back to me.    http://minnesotaseasons.com/Fungi/Dryads_Saddle.html
    • Try the narrow channel on Enchanted Isle.  The shallow water holds carp and sunnies this time of year, giving you plentiful small action and the occasional larger fish to reel in.
    • Good luck Anyfish2. Saw quite a few out in the rain driving home today    
    • Well, i will try my hand at picking up another bird for the team starting tomorrow.  Weather looks to be challenging at best over the next 7 days.  I will give my best effort when i can get out.   Birds are still hanging around the area well,  hopefully i can get a tom to break from the Hens.  
    • and this?   
    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
