Im putting this in NBR because even though its Cypress, its not about riding.
I have to admit that Im a bit fascinated by Cougars - I picked up a game camera and have been putting it on Cypress throughout the winter - its probably been running for a total of 6 weeks since Jan.
Initially I had it on BLT above Fern to avoid billions of truck photos.....I put it in places that I thought might be bottlenecks (creeks) and where the camera could get a good look up or down BLT for things crossing it. I ended up with just riders making their way up BLT and, Im not sure what this is about, but pick up trucks at night (above Fern). Nothing exciting.
Still nothing exciting but I went off trail last round to the side of the forest just above the power station. When Ive asked the construction folks what and where they see critters, they've seen cougars in that area so I felt that it was a reasonable next step. Ive seen bears there too.
Anyways, got photos of a deer and coyote. Boring, but maybe one day Ill get something good. The other locations where cougars have been seen on Cypress (by people who Ive spoken with) is on Eagle Lake access road above and west of Cypress Falls Park and at the very top of Lower Tall Cans at the water tank.
Ill add to this thread photos that are of anything wild....Watch where you take a piss on Cypress!!!! BPP has a bunch of cameras up too - Ive found 4 of theirs so far.
