I was being sarcastic Boys.....

I live in Cougar Country and do tons of solo stuff deep in the heart of their territory. Many a times I know there's one me watching me. Thing is, there is a deal in the animal dimension known as predatory senses where the predator can sense their preys emotional state i.e. fear.

The emotion of fear emits certain body chemicals that they can pick up on and know that you are easy prey.

I will leave it that.

Mainly, you probably wouldn't run 100yds out from your house silently at night, for hours on end.



I run around here on a regular basis, occasionally at night. Several people do.


They are probably responsible for the deer kills, and are just blaming it on the lions.

Heh, one could wear one of those backward facing human face masks. Like the some of the honey gatherers in the Sundabar do to retard tiger attacks.

This thread should continue forever...

How is the Man from Nantucket getting along? I hope his chain mail suit was up to the terror of two cougars.

Maybe a really nice mullet would protect your neck from cougars.

I personally always bring a really slow person with a limp. I also fill there pack with raw meat and melted Snickers (tm) when they are not looking - Snickers (tm) are in case of bears, you know.

Protect Ya Neck!
