Wolf and bear (without cubs) I can tolerate. There's just something I'm uncomfortable about with cougar though... Possibly because I've never experienced one in the wild. Not sure how I would react.

(Need a Oh S--- icon!)

Doesn't Woodcarver Dan live in that general area? I see a market for walking sticks/big cat defense clubs...

lol I will have to tell him that next time I see him. As far as bears there are none around here. We've lived here now going on eight years and still have not seen one. All these sighting are just naked hairy men running around. Laughing

If you head west (of Minocqua about 30 miles), you could be seeing bear on a regular basis (lots of skinny hairless men in the area so I must be seeing bear). Last summer was light, but the summer before I would see at least one bear a week in different spots. Wolf are another story. We know they are there, but they tend to be harder to sight. My closest encounter was last deer season about 75 feet away. I don't know who was more surprised.

I've seen plenty of bear in the Rhinelander area. Never saw a cougar, though.

Naked hairy men!! Surprised Actually, we have some hunting land up north and we had a neighbor up there that would rent a bigfoot costume and then walk in front of his friend and family member's deer cam's. You should hear the stories! Laughing

So that explains the BFRO sightings up north.

Yup, not kidding.

And back to the topic at hand....I was hiking in the Kettle Moraine South State Park on Tuesday and I just couldn't shake the feeling that something was watching me from above. I know that's quite a ways south from this sighting, but I still just kept looking up in the trees. Maybe it was just a porcupine.

Someone is always watching you from above, becca. And all of us, too.
