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

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

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.

    • Next time just call it a great Pike video, with some bonus Bass thrown in! Who's to know?
    • Good luck and shoot straight 
    • He said "getting wood" uh uhha 
    • Or I flat out suck, can't figure it out, on the bright side the snot rockets kept me entertained!    
    • The green up is still in full swing this week, with the help of consistent rain events and temperatures between the 50s and 70s. This, combined with recent snow in the northern portions of the state continues to put a damper on recently high fire danger across and has brought us to "Low" fire danger throughout the counties. Water levels are still running above normal, and the Wisconsin River is above flood stage. Trails across the state are likely to feature more than a few hints of mud. Bring your rubber boots or waterproof hikers and enjoy the scenery as the banks, forests, marshes and prairies respond to the influx of moisture. Challenging weather made for tough angling across the board this past week. Anglers from Marinette County to Brown County reported numerous attempts at walleye and brown trout. Murkier water didn't help, but reports came in from anglers that they were seeing success for non-target species, particularly northern pike. In Oconto County, the sucker run is rolling along and disturbing the bite. In Brown County, those that did see success for walleye noted that the fish were fully spawned and on their way back to the bay. Stream anglers are reporting a difficult steelhead bite in eastern Door County, while suckers have dispersed in Kewaunee County, leaving the steelhead there more visible as temperatures climb upwards. Water temperatures range from the upper 40s to the low 50s. There were two to four foot waves and small craft advisories in effect last Thursday and Friday in Milwaukee. Anglers at the McKinley Pier are looking for coho and chinook salmon, while brown trout were being landed behind Summerfest. Anglers in Racine County reported boaters and pier anglers landing brown trout as well as a few coho. At the Root River, water visibility was around 12 inches, with an improving steelhead bite and a few remaining suckers caught. Anglers in Kenosha saw more success for browns from the harbor than the south pier. Though no catches were reported from the Pike, the mouth of the river is open and visibility is good. Temperatures for these waters ranged from 47 to 54 degrees Fahrenheit. .
    • Spotted it on the way back from getting wood and tried to sneak up on it. 
    • Hawg - please take down my post - didn't mean to offend or break any rules     
    • I looked it up on google and found it but not the sprinkler it was $12.99. I don't remember what it was.
    • Just went home for lunch and....he's back.
    • Within the last few days the bluejays have discovered my suet cakes.   Also have a hairy woodpecker that has appeared recently.
