Don't say that mnorton! Just last November, 2 of the guys from this forum were out here fishing. A few days later they tell me they saw one, and I said "we don't have those here." now, i might have to admit they were right! <_<

M,

 

Billy sent the picture to me on the 19th; he had just gotten it from a friend who checks his trail cameras a couple of times a week to weekly, so I imagine the photo had been taken anywhere from the week before to a month or so ago.

 

But, that's a guess, too, because I can't read the date either, and Billy didn't tell me when it was taken. I'm sure its pretty recent because Billy doesn't usually hang on to the photos long before sending them out.

wish we could see something like that here in michigan but dnr says we don't have any either

 

We're getting quite a few here; they're spread across Texas. I had a friend come in the other day who owns a ranch on the edge of town. He wanted a medicine to knock a couple of lions out so he could move them. He's not going to shoot them; most people here don't because they serve a purpose. We've got tons of deer, and deer are mountain lions main diet item. Billy Jack has two strolling thorugh his front yard a couple of times a day.

That is a really awesome trail camera photo. I wish we could see what happened next. Do you suppose the deer spun around when the flash went off?

There are most definately Mt. Lions in New York State. They're seen quite regularly. Not often, but annually. mark..... ;)

Riffleriver_ _ _ - You're right, none in Michigan(direct quote from the DNR). I fish alone on the small streams North of Cadillac. I've heard they only prey on old folks, so I wear a hat to cover what's left of my grey hair and sing the latest rap song when I'm in the woods. Has worked so far. Seems to keep other folks away, too.
