Wow! What a small world and great history! I have some old pictures of my great grandparents with cougar Pete, my great grandparents hunted with a fella for 40 years, his name was Henry Luth and was part of the "little Bellingham" camp of my great grandparents in the Methow back in the day. Henry was a sniper in World War 2 and was great friends with my great grandparents before and after the war. My great grandparents were introduced to Pete through Henry, as a Kid I remember stories of him but never met him myself. I will dig through some of our old pictures to see if I can find any of him and my great grandparents, I know there is some, if my dad was still around I could dredge up some stories I,m sure but he passed about a year ago.

Cool old info about Cougar Pete.  My brother has a custom hatchet that Cougar Pete made for him in the 60's when he would to come visit their Renton Auto Wrecking business they owned.  My mom said he would come and cook his can of beans on a little fire pit at their little junkyard and just hang out.  I also went to a garage sale a few years ago and found an old outdoor life magazine from 1912 and as I was flipping through it there was an article from Cougar Pete talking about hunting cougar up near North Bend after a good snow.

Very cool... Washington's Ben Lilly. Would love to know if there's any books written about or by him? I'd buy 'em.
