Black-Tailed Deer are also very aware of visual animal signs. Here are some pics of their reaction upon approaching a Cougar scratch pile.

Here are some more observations of a Doe and her fawn as they approach a Cougar scratch pile. Maybe I'm wrong on what I take these pictures to represent but the fawns have to learn this somehow.

I'm always amazed at how predator and prey share the same piece of ground.

Yes interesting. I don't doubt that the doe will train the fawn about cougars. I know from my beaver trapping days that a smart mother beaver will keep the whole colony away from your trap sometimes.

Cool observations. Some years ago I recorded a puma scent-rubbing on a mossy rock, and she finished the session by peeing on it in a very big way (but not where she had rubbed). The moss turned brown where the urine had streamed. Jackrabbits, bear cub, black-tailed deer, and gray fox visited and sniffed it carefully more than once. I was surprised by all the interest. They keep definitely tabs on what's going on.

Yeah, isn't this stuff a kick?
Cameratrapping has opened up a window of learning opportunity for us all. In a way, it really does give us a peek into their world as seen by them. The predator and prey relationship is complex and fascinating for sure.
