    I hunt in NE (lower pennisula) Michigan and me and my 2 hunting buddies have see one when we were bow hunting. we all thought is was a black bear until we saw the long tail, then it stopped and we got a better look at it. So it was a black cougar or panther. come to find out a guy down the road ended up treein' it and got a picture of it. We also have been seeing its tracks and droppings. there is no way it is a black bear track or a bobcat.

    WV DNR says they are not present in our state, but I beg to differ, having seen two in my lifetime. I also wonder, if they aren't here, why are they listed as "fully protected" in the game regs? Bear hunter friend of mine found a 6 pt. buck 20 feet up in a white oak some years back, doubtful that he climbed up there and died. There are those that say they aren't here because "we never see one". I wonder how many times we've all walked under a big hemlock or past a rock face and something has laid up there and watched us pass, that we never saw? Think about that.

    I hear them sometimes and have seen a mother with cubs once on my familt's property in texas. I've never heard of a dangerouse encounter with one in my area, but makes my hair stand up when i hear one scream anyways.

    yes there are cougers in MO. the missouri department of consrervation set up a couger response team and have had at least 7 confirmations since 1994. it is a very small population and there is no evidence that they are breeding. there was even a road kill couger in kansas city in 2002.

    I've seem what looked like a mtn lion crossing the highway ner my home in arkansas, long and fast. I've seen one game photo of mtn lion near Lake Sylvia close to Little Rock Ar. None of my cameras or friends cameras have had mtn lions yt. The Ar game and Fish say mtn lions of Ar are most likely released pets.

    I read an article on google about a man going down south and taking pictures and videos of a mountain lion or cougar, he brought the pics up north and turned them in to the game commission and they dismissed them as a house cat

    There are tons here in Central California. We can't shoot them though, they're protected. saw a pretty big one about a week ago.
