    here in MI when I was a kid, you could take a buck for a camp deer. you also could use your buck license to kill a bear. not anymore.

    On a cool note, my son, who lives in Hesperia, MI, not CA, called a little while ago, and had just seen a 75 pound or so cougar. It was stalking 3 turkeys, from about 20 yards away. He put his wife’s 3 small dogs inside, got her and his 9 mm and went back our, it was still there! He said he walked up to within 10 yards or so before it took off back into the river bottom to the south.

    I used to live right in that spot. Of course I told him never to do that again. You don’t want to have the animal get used to human contact, and you don’t want to have to hurt that cat who is just trying to make a living like the rest of us.

    Honestly, though, I have never seen a cougar in this part of the state. I have seen bobcats, bear-only once, and a fisher marten, or pine marten, not sure which, again only once, and at night, but never a cougar. Funny thing, I went to school in Hesperia, and our mascot was the Panther, basically the same animal as the cougar, I guess.

    Our DNR has a hotline to report cougar and wolf sightings and I said he should call tomorrow. It would be nice to see what they have to say about this, as more and more people have been seeing them in the southern part of the state. They try and deny it, but are having to admit it is true, as people have pictures of them on trail cams. It is bad for tourism if people think little fluffy might get eaten while camping in one of our state parks.

      Here in Georgia the DNR has offered a reward for just a picture of a cougar here in North Georgia mountains (rather than far south Georgia which might see Florida Panthers. All the hunters swear they’re seeing them, but yet, no one has been able to provide a game cam picture of one. With the thousands of cameras in the woods right now, if there were cougar here, we’d have had the DNR paying by now. Sad to say, I don’t believe we have them in the area.

      I had a very large cougar eat one of my peacocks a few years back up in the Huron Forest, From nose to tail about 8ft long. Boy that’s one small doe. Hardly worth shootin.

    I have a pic of a cougar from my trail cam. I had it out last fall about 200 yards from my house. Hesperia, MI. is about 80 miles south of us. I have friends that have seen them around. The DNR still say they aren’t around. Idiots.

Play nice.
