I didn't think cougars hunted like a pride of lions. They roam alone and are territorial.

I think the one in back of the 1st 3 pics has a orange tag in his ear.

Have these been on here before? Not sure why my boss would lie to me about the pics? I will ask him tonight at work if he knows more details about the photos? If they are a repost, I am sorry I wasted your time.

With all of this cougar talk before deer hunting I wonder if people are thinking twice about that new ground blind grin

Can you post a link to where you have seen them before? I am curious about why my boss said they were from Greenbush. I want to know all the facts before I ask him tonight.

A month a go they spoted two cougers near Rochester Mn. Not surprising about 25 years ago my dad lost a calf to a pack of cougers just south of there. DNR took plaster casts of the paw prints. They told my dad they can roam a range of 60 miles or so. I would [PoorWordUsage] my self if I saw one hunting. They will hunt you.

The Grand Forks Herald has a story about these pics

The title of the story is:

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

They have the pictures and all. I believe it is in the Sunday, Nov 2 edition and is available online

Cougars can climb trees too.

Dont worry they'll probably have a good grip on your neck before you ever see or hear them.

poinsetters, did your boss come clean?

I had the newspaper article from the Grandforks Herald when I asked him about the pics. He tried talking his way out of it, but his face turned pretty red by the time he was done. He did want to keep the article to show his dad. I hope he learned his lesson.

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
