No, I wasn't pointing it out

No, I wasn't pointing it out for that reason.  Please don't take it that way.  I was just sort of "linking" it to my post that I made.  I have duplicate posted many times, and will probably do so again.  There is alot to read on here, and alot to miss. Wink

Seriously though, that is one heck of a journey....... We had one out here in CA that was collared, and they followed his movements.  He moved about 75 miles in 6 weeks, and we thought that was a long way.  This guy went 2,000 miles.  Geez.

sighting

I am originally from New Milford, Ct., about 45 mins from Milford, Ct. A very good friend of mine still lives in N/W Ct and told me a story last year of his seeing a mountain lion in that area of the state. He is a very experienced hunter with about 80-100 big game animals under his belt, so I have zero reason to doubt him at all. Lots of woods in that area and bear sightings have become very common there as well. A moose was actually hit by a car in the same area the mountain lion was killed in, about 2 yrs ago too.

Interesting stuff, without a doubt!! Yes
