Hey everyone, what do you think this critter is??? I beleive it's a cat, but was looking for more opinions. It seems to have shorter hair than a bear, but both critters have been seen in the area. I know there is only one or 2 bear's in the general vicinity, and 3-4 years ago I was seeing cat tracks all over my footprints on outings.. Posted Image Blaine

Definitely mountain lion. Google up a bunch of mountain lion images and you'll notice the small fur tuft where the lower edge of the ear meets the side of the head. Bobcat has a completely different silhouette. And unless this was a blonde phase black bear, you would have a bit more detail in a bear's fur even at this extreme overexposure. Also, the neck would probably be thicker on a bear.Old photo? Your photo's time detail says Oct 18, 2008 at 8:28:46 PM.Thanks for sharing it.

MtnDog, how did u get my photo time?? I croped out that part of the picture.. It was actually Sept 22 2010. Its from my buddies camera and he's kinda lazy on reading instructions on how to set the date. Shoot he has a couple cameras he practically doesnt even know how to use because he wont read directions.

Probably the same way I did using PhotoShop. It's embedded in the image. We're sneaky buggers you have to watch out for us. :) :rolleyes:

That's the Chupacabra right there! I seen him myself, he's got snake-like eyes and more teeth than a grand piano. We got in a wrastlin' match last Friday night cuz I wound up a might close to mama bear and he thought that I was tryin' to shake his sugar tree...well, to make a long story short, he's the biggest, ugliest, smelliest and meanest creature that I ever did take on with a switch in the woods at night...
I'd rather be fishing with my son.

So much on cheating on the white tip coyote! Heywood Your right its a rare blond phase panathore.
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.
