Lee, Does that bring back a recent Flash-back? I don't think kicking rocks would take care of them!

Amazing... sure seeing more and more pics like this. But not this many big cats in one spot however. Believe 5 was the most I saw in another pic and 4 together in another one. Unreal!Thanks for sharing

The last lines of the article:The only photo as interesting as the image of eight cats occurred when he went back after Christmas to check his camera again."The first picture is of me leaving the camera after setting it up two weeks previous," he said. "The next image is of a cougar coming down the same trail in my tracks just minutes after I'd left." :roflmao3[1]:

Yeah Mick,I've had the big kitty on my mind a bit lately. I know I'll be watching my back trail from now on.I agree Frank, there does seem to be quite a few sightings lately. Sure wish we could hunt them again, I've heard Cougar meat is better than most game animals.Plus a nice tanned Lion hide would look nice in my double wide.Lee

I think its a fake . There no interaction between them. And only one picture of them.?
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.

I posted a different Article that has the same picture in it. I did not see this one first. The article I posted has some more pictures. One of the cats is warning one of the other cats in it to stay away or something!!! ( Any way there is some action in one of the pictures that reminds me of what you might see if you get a bunch of COUGAR"S together. LOL) Here is another picture of them. Sorry BPS I would not have made another post if I would have paid attention to this one first.Posted Image

I seen this on another forum also and have asked a guy that lives there, what he thinks is keeping all those cats together in that area. I am curious what they are eating??? That many cats could eat a horse a day. Or a couple of deer!

In one of the articles or in the news video, I believe they mentioned there was a large deer herd in the canyon below, where the Trail Cam was set up.I agree 8 or 9 cats in one area could wipe out a herd of deer quickly. There must be a lot of prey in that area or else they would be scattered to the 4 winds in search of a meal.I hope they get tagged soon, or else deer season there will be pretty dismal next year.Lee

I've seen three different photos from that trail cam and I'm STILL a little suspicious of it.It wouldn't be difficult to photoshop multiple lions into the same shot, making one family group look much larger.Second 'red flag' is the owner of the trail cam only wanted to be known by his first name. Why? (Remember the clowns who claimed to have shot the two-headed "push-me pull-me" deer? First names only in their story, too.)Third 'red flag'... the "Bushnell" logo and date/time stamp look doctored. Bushnell uses it's logo with upper and lower case letters but the photos show all upper case in a different font style. Some Bushnell trail cams (like the one Dabob uses) show moon phase and temperature. That's missing on these photos but maybe the lions were photographed with a budget model. The time is cropped and simply says "16:" in the photos I've seen. Sunset on that day, in that area was about 16:14 hours and full dark would have been about 30 minutes later ("End Civil Twilight"). Anybody have a Bushnell trail cam that shows the data like in these lion photos? I WANT to believe the pictures are genuine but the more I think about them the more I find myself doubting. :hellohello9il:...maybe.

Here is the third picture. There is another article in The Seattle Times. It says this in the article is all I can say about these. I beleive they are real, but I could be fooled. Any ways this is what it says.( Brad Thomas captured the images a few days before Christmas on a trail camera, triggered by a motion sensor, set up on private land in Douglas County. He submitted a disc of photos to cougar experts with the state. After reviewing and discussing the images among themselves, the biologists declared the pictures extraordinary a rare glimpse of fellowship among the West's common but elusive mountain lions."The pictures are 100 percent legit," said Jon Gallie, the assistant district biologist with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife in Wenatchee.)Posted Image
