    Looks like a very young cat. Mostly curious but still big enough to make a meal out of you.

    No red next to yellow and your a dumb fellow. Yellow next to black, hit it in the back. It's a Copperhead.

    Brown color, fangs, secretive nature... clearly a brown recluse.

    Large predators watch, stalk or are in close proximity of elk hunters far more often than most elk hunters realize. I've recounted on GT my almost annual encounters with black bears and mountain lions while hunting. Bears regularly chomp on my elk carcass before I get it all packed out.

    Gotta watch your six out there. :cowboy:



    I saw the lion that made these tracks, only a few feet from my morning hunting stand.

    And, the bear that made these tracks went right to my downed elk. I got a contract out on him, a 2012 bear license. :supergrin:

    Pretty scary. I have seen how a little ole house cat can tear a 6.0' man up.

    Mountain lion print, AZ desert, south of Tucson. Glock 17 magazine used for reference. The boys are out there!
