Lions have been trickling into Northen WI more over the last 5 yrs or so, at least the DNR is starting to acknowledge their presence in the last 5 yrs, they have been around far longer than that from hunter's accounts of seeing and hearing them out in the woods, I came across one while walking out of a beaver pond with an elderly friend after duck hunting about 7 years ago, it jumped the trail in front of us, we didn't see it well but it was large and didn't make a whisper of sound, we know what it was. These are the only thing in the woods in WI that would truely make me worry of being mauled/killed, and with more reports of them around I do tend to carry guns more often when going out in the woods.

I have seen many lions over the years and all but two of them were running away. One of them I came up on mid-day as it was sunning itself in the middle of a ranch road. It looked at me and the casually got up and strolled off. The other one had just brought down a deer and stood over the kill staring me down (I was in my truck). I stayed and watched as it dragged the kill off the road into a ravine. I don't fear them too much. I figure if one targets me for a kill I will never know what happened. Its not the ones you see that are a problem.

Yeah sure that bear would make a nice rug, but after watching that bear and just how curious it was, it just reminds you that God made that creature. When I hunt, I employ the principle of "shoot only what is needed for meat, or in extreme cases self defense and then use that meat too"

The bear just wanted to hang out with this guy, but nooooo. He had to deny the bear that opportunity. It looked so sad and defeated when it had to climb back down

What a beautiful animal. Glad the hunter was ethical and didn't harm it.
