During the muzzleloader season this year we sighted a cougar two different times hanging out by the road as we rode bikes in behind a gate in the morning dark. Both times it was well before shooting hours so didn't want to risk taking a shot.  The second time we saw his green eyes looking back at us as we rode by and he jumped down off a log and walked out on the road behind us follwing us for a bit. I was tempted to fire off my handgun at him a couple times just to scare him off. He didnt seem to be too fearfull of people riding by which could have turned dangerous real quick.  Saw a couple deer in the area which I'm sure he was hunting. I'll admit it was pretty creepy riding in and out in the dark each day. I plan on going back there this winter several times with the fox pro to see if I can call him during legal hunting hours.

Before you take in the, FoxPro do everyone a favor  and send in some spandex wearing bikers but in all fairness advise them of the cute Kitty Cat just leave out the details of the size.
Make it sound like a bicyclist utopia,  good road, no vehicles to worry about, great scenery, few other people especially unvaxxed and good area for viewing and interacting with wildlife.

Really great story, especially with all the tracking and backtracking this hunter did. Really gives you a good insight on behavior.

    I went out sunday since it was dumping snow on the west side. I drove around 200 miles total. I cut one set of small cougar tracks that were a few hours old and dropped off into a roadless canyon. I decided not to pursue since it was small, not crazy fresh and in a nasty bottom. Later in the day I cut a fresh set of big tom tracks. It was chasing deer around a mountainside and dropped downhill. I was planning on circling down to the bottom and walking in a ways to set up but on the way down there I found his tracks coming back uphill and sidehilling up a cliff face. There was a decommissioned road that runs along the ridge top, so I geared up and hiked up there. I never cut his tracks again up there so I suspect he was still in a large timber patch. I walkin about a mile and tried calling for a while but was running out of daylight and I forgot my external speaker at the house so I couldn't get my sound out. I feel like if I had my speaker or a couple more hours to call from a different location I might have had a real honest chance at him.
