Not saying it was a Cougar

36 posts in this topic

Ok I was out looking for shed today. I happened to look up in a tree and saw parts of a deer mostly skin but there were other parts to. What I am wondering is what else would or could do this. I am posting it here cause I dont want to say were in the state I am from cause I dont want to here that they dont exist here. That is also why I am not saying it is a cougar

How big of deer parts? Cougars don't usually feed in trees. I'm guessing Cheetah or Jaguar. wink

Facts are facts. Cougars do exist in MN.

If the carcass was in the tree approx. 12 feet up or higher, there's a good chance a cat put it there.

I drove by a house west of Le Sueur and there was a carcass hanging in a tree but it was only 3 feet off the ground. In this case, the owner obviously put it there..

Theyre definitely around. I like how the DNR has changed the language from "Youre crazy" to "The exist but are rare."

I have photos of two that were caught on a trail camera not far from where I live.

Must be a couger. If it was a Sasquatch you'd see emty beef jerky bags in the tree.

There's no messin' with Sasquatch.

Had a trail camera picture of a Bobcat couple years ago and, according to some google search the kids did, Bobcats hide out in trees.

My guess...bobcat, cougar, or those pesky kids. Of those, I would say the most likely would be a human or a bobcat.

Yep, and bobcats can get pretty big.

Although this one may be unusually large.

I always thought Sasquatch buried his food when done. How else can you explain what I keep finding when I bury my food.

im originally from MOntana and my first Elk that I downed w/ a bow had been taken over by a mountain lion. He buried the liver and organs with dirt and proceeded to dine on the flesh when I arrived. Between my shot and finding the elk, it must of been only 30-45 minutes. He then scattered up a tree and came back down running. He did climb the tree pretty fast. But thats a mountain lion. I'm sure this one was a sasquatch. :P

    • After a quarter century in the construction sector I learned you should take your budget, double it and add another 10%. That gets most people in the ballpark anyway lol. 
    • You didn't even understand the question Junior. Do we need to get you a translator? 
    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
