There are lots of trail cams on eBay for 50-80, and that seems like a decent deal considering it will probably walk away! I've seen mtn lion tracks near Nelson in a canyon, right next to deer or sheep tracks. They were fairly large, about 3-4" across.
The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!
