People who rarely connect with the natural world in person can have strange ideas about it. Sad to think people can be so ignorant and gullible, but there it is. Of course, most people would behave very different when encountering a bear - at least, I'd surely hope so!

Yes, pack your OFF! If you get outside much during the summer, it will come in very handy.

If I had been holding a camra in the ready to shoot position about 4 years ago,while driveing through the Danial Boone Forest in Whitley Co.I possibly might have been able to snap a photo of a Mountain Lion,Couger,Panther or whatever they should be listed as.Around 125 to 150 ft. straight in front of us on a Main gravel road in the forest we saw a Big Cat dart across the road from one side to the other.He never slowed down,never paused or asked us if we would like for him or her to smile and say cheese.The cats long,thick tail was nearly as long as the body it was in a taunt position a foot or two off the ground.The cat seemed to be dark brown in color and rather large,but our guess was that it was not full grown.The largest dog we own is a Ridgeback Curr and weighs around 65-70lb. so in compairson this cat could have been somewhat larger.Usually in our experience's when we least expect it and are totally not prepaired to take a picture of any unique wildlife is when you will run upon something.Even if I were in a position to snap a pic of any meat eating animal while out in the wild if I were on foot and close enough to get a nice clear shot I doubt if that would be at the top of my list of things to do.The Danial Boone IS a wild and mysterious place.My husband and I were raised right next to the D.B.in Whitley Co.and have spent many days and nights there,and Lord willing will spend many more.We have seen and heard many unexplained things there.The deeper you go in the more beautiful it is,but also the danger factor goes up.It truely isnt safe to go entering into the forest to far without guns and dogs.In forest that vast is going to have many kinds of WILDLIFE that is still actually wild and afraid of man,so they probley will be on the move when you see them and not,I repeat not going to stop and chat with you unless there really hungery!Its been fun posting Gretta P.Enjoy the great outdoors,while we still can...

Mountain Lions In the Danial Boone,Oh Yes!!!!Also there is a place called Moonbow Lake on the Cumberland Falls State Park property that a few years back was covered with cat tracks all around the sandy edges of the lake.Kind of smaller than what one would think for a Mountainlion so probley Wildcat.After hikeing and exploring the area and running across these litterly or should I say ''kitty litterly'' everywhere,I told my husband that uh, lets just get on home now.Way too many sign to be down in that gap.I felt like we were exposed standing around looking at these tracks,maybe they were watching US!!!

Thank you for your interest and takeing the time to read.Since I last posted my husband rechecked a fresh game trail in the D.B.that we had previously found a couple of weeks before.We discovered signs of Turkey use and Deer droppings and a unusually high tree rub,about 4to5 ft. on a tree that was at least 4 inches wide.The bark was peeled down and shreded.If it was a deer rub,it must be SOME Deer! Anyways my husband stopped to rest beside a huge cliff line where we had taken our lunch and rest a couple weeks prior.He saw some CAT tracks going around our own older boot prints from the weeks before.He said they wernt real large but they sure wernt left from a house cat.Ha.Not really funny,It makes me a little nervous thinking that there is a good chance that one day we will come upon something hungery.Our love of nature is much greater than that fear in life so,I just God wont perr...mit that to happen.
