Season opens up in 3 months.
I was going to say... you are talking to the right group of guys for taking out as many of those cats as possible! Might be time to invite some of the members to come hunt those cats on your land. I would drive all the way out there for a chance at a cat and to help you out lol!
i got some heavie cat areas if you want to drive to the ne corner

I've got a decent sized cat in the Kapowsin unit I want to scope out before season opens and set up cams to see its frequency. If I can't find it or somewhat pattern it then I will probably take you up on that offer. Spotted it last year while checking out an area with a buddy. Hit a y in the road and we took a left and I looked over to the right and BAM theres a big cat in the road. Jumped out and a jeep came up and went to the right. Cat was gone into some thick stuff in 2 seconds flat. Buddy wanted to chase it in the thick.. I said HELL NO! Call me a sissy all you want but I'm not dealing with 100lbs or more of angry cougar in stuff you can barely see 5 feet into lol. Cams will be setup around the thick in the older growth. Funny side note. Pretty sure the cat was following an elk herd we bumped into about 200 yards further down the clear cut.

Cougar Depredation: Wildlife Conflict Specialist Jacobsen worked with Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Enforcement Officer Nelson to handle a cougar attack on an alpaca in Klickitat County. Jacobsen and Officer Nelson were preparing to head to the site early the next morning to investigate and track down the cougar, but the cougar returned late that night and was shot and killed by the landowner. Officer Nelson visited the site and took possession of the cougar

Reading the weekly activity report from the wdfw and found this, nice shootin!

I shot that problem cougar at 30 yards while standing on my porch last summer. Might just throw a call out in the front field/yard and call from my porch. Seems as good a place as any..
