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

    • Except for the fact that to Hillary Minneapolis/ St Paul is rural fly over territory. Outstate doesn't even exist and I would rather that rural areas are left to make their own choices rather than have what they do be dictated by the Capital.    If you ever ran a small city hall and saw the additional dollars it takes to do an infrastructure project with the USDA involved you might think a bit differently about all the " help" big government provides. 
    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
