I will have to just leave you with a couple of Mt. Lion footprints from 2011.
The first I found in the Yuba Gap placing cams ahead of the Codger's workshop.
The second was found a few days later at the Chimineas Ranch while exploring a canyon with Randomtruth.
Lastly an out of focus image of Mt. Lion scat. I can now proudly make bets in a bar that I could distinguish Mt. Lion poop from the other large American carnivores with my eyes closed and my nosed turned up. Just leave out the Southern 40 Miles of Arizona and New Mexico, Jaguars, Ocelots and Jaguarundis; my scent palate is not that refined yet.
On another note, what is the currently excepted binomial nomenclature for the mountain lion? I see it as both Panthera concolor and Puma concolor in fairly recent guides and sources.
