    I recently checked a camera that had been in the field for awhile only to find this shot of two cougars during daylight hours. A popular trail is located only a couple hundred yards east of this location. Two or three years back I had pics of two young cubs a couple miles away so I wonder if this might explain this pair which from my understanding is quite rare.

    Damn I’d hate to walk to my stand in dark wherever you are hunting.

    The front one looks young. It's probably a kitten and mom or two young siblings. (Tho' the back one looks like an adult)

    I’d piss my pants if I walked to my stand and saw one of those. Kitten or mom.

    Yeah, that might make sense. I just learned that mom might stick around as long as 2 years. Lots of other interesting info here: https://americanexpedition.us/learn...ain-lion-facts-trivia-information-and-photos/

    I was going to say it could be a male following a female, but the two visited the same camera a month earlier so that doesn't fit the short time period for breeding mentioned in the link above.

    Those are great shots BTW!

    Looking closer, I can now see the fading spots of the smaller one.
