Default Anyone have any mountain lions (panther) near them?

Two guys this year next to our land while bowhunting think they saw a mountain lion. I live in Central WI in waupaca county and the DNR said they had reportings of people seeing them.

Just wondering if anyone else has saw then while hunting?

I saw a cat paw print that waswiderthan a man's hand while hunting in southwest Louisiana over 20 years ago. I'm not saying that it was a panther, but.....

Confirmed panther sightingshave been pretty regular in Iowa in recent years, so why not Wisconsin.

Ive seen two on my land in west Texas, in the past 10 years. My cousin shot one two years ago on my land as well.He saw a doe and was getting ready to shot her, when he caught a glimps of a large cat behind her. He changed his focus and put the 30-06 in the cat in stead of the doe. Im sure there are more around, its just hard to see them. Very illusive creatures. I also feel there are more around because the neighbor, who has cattle, said he has had several calves disappear.

Ive had them on my land in Mid/South Louisiana. Between Elic (Alexandria) and Villplat. Not unusual to hear them in the woods at night. Ive actually seen a black one there several times.

Family has a cabin near Park Falls, WI in Price County. Guy my uncle works will has a cabin near Butternut in Ashland County just north of us. He got a trail cam pic of one. I saw the pic of it. Kinda sends chills down your spine. Big cats with big teeth = a scary walk in the dark.

Yea, I have seen one in the bottoms behind my house and my grandpa and I saw two in Oklahoma. That is scary as hell when you see them, but hearing them makes my hair stand on end.
