    He is lucky it was just a little squirt. I work with CPW predator staff. Some of the big males they've collared are 2 hundo. In that region as well.

    I’m never hiking horsetooth again...
    You'd only have to worry about an old, sick, or injured cat. If you see one, it's because he/she wanted you to see them. Dogs often miss scent as they are watching from above.

    Travel in pairs and carry bear spray (yes, bear spray) and a good knife on your hip or inner thigh. Not in your backpack or faggy fanny-pack millenial cellphone shit.Make lots of noise. Announce your presence around blind corners.


    We've got NPs and NFs in MT, WY and Alaska we cannot carry firearms to collect remote sensing data. "Minimum tool" analysis bologna.

    Bear spray is deadly effective on wolves, bears and cats.

    They go right to panic mode and bolt.

    The sound of a gunshot alone can often turn a predator into kill/fight mode. When you hit them and don't kill them, it is worse. Seen it first hand with partially trapped or maimed bears.

    Many large northern predators know a gunshot means a dinner bell. You may bring in more trouble to your camp the next day....even if you scared off your initial nuisance target.








    Yeah, I’ll just stick with skiing and running in town...
    Colorado is mild. CPW has been paying a team of mercenaries to keep all predators down (cats, coyotes, black and griz) for decades. There are two populations of isolated griz here CPW is forbidden to discuss....

    This is just so out of state noobs can pop a giant 5x5 lawn elk 50 yards from the ATV trails. Many of these bucks were eating fresh sod on front lawns the previous spring in Estes Park.

    I'd be more worried around ellensburg and north of Colville. Huge cats (nearing 3 hundo), wolf packs and the red man will get you before any Boulder hippy mini-cat will.

    EDIT: WDFW will laugh at you if a bear/cat/wolf disturb your camp and you call in. CPW will be forced to remove it.
    My friend who goes to Central had a big car encounter not too long ago. Said it was a smaller one though.
    What, like an old Lincoln Town Car? Or are we talking stretch limo?
    Town car. He’s pour...

    What makes you think she'd save you if a cat attacked?

    Dflea is an outdoorsman. That he didn't know this simple, old school solution for cat safety is shocking and disappointing. There's no telling when, but he's as good as eaten.

    I'm hearing that cougars are over rated and bears are a lot more likely to surprise and maul you.
