When ever I see one of those in the wild its a mind F**k how cats that big live so close to use and we almost never see them.
My son's first cougar picture that he caught on a trail camera was on a Saturday morning a few hundred yards from a very popular hiking and biking trail. Also there are these big furry things. This one was about 100 yards off of the Great Western Trail that my son's friend got a picture of.
On the switch backs section of trail 41? in AF, there is an old stump in the trial as you come around the corner. It's been there for years and years.. yet EVERY time I see it, I think it's a bear for just a split second..
