Mountain lions in Ulster County???
« on: February 29, 2012, 10:07:27 AM »
Hi all-

I live in the Plattekill area and with the last two weeks I have heard of 2 different "large" cat sightings. Two were in the town of Modena and one in Plattekill. Has anybody on here actually seen a Mountain Lion in Ulster county??? My brother had swore he seen one in New Paltz about two years ago and I told him he was nuts. Also what if Im out Spring turkey hunting And i see a cat approaching do I run or shoot???? lol Is it illegal to shot one in NYS.


Thanks fellas and heres to health , wealth and Big Bucks!!!

Kind of like shooting a unicorn.  I'd love to see the government try to prosecute someone for shooting an animal they say doesn't exist in this area.

Never seen one but heard of sightings. Had a Greene co. forest ranger ask me if I ever seen one, not sure why. All I know is when sitting in the woods whether turkey hunting or calling coyotes I always have my back against a tree. You never know. Trail cams are in most of our arsenals so I think some pictures would have shown up.

Thats a bad day of turkey hunting...!!
was the coyote positive for rabies or are preventative shots that expensive?

Can see a ranger saying "OH CHIT! OH CHIT! MAN I'm IN TROUBLE NOW!

On a side note a guy I know says a DEC released a pair years ago upstate.Says a Ranger he knew told him.Dunno with all the trail cams and people putting out food to get pictures I think a few pictures would have been gotten already.
Nobody ever wants to restrict medication when someone that goes off his medication and harms or murders someone. Even though these medications do more harm than good with there long lists of side effects.

You can shoot something in self defense.
