I'm reposting a few pics to accompany the latest one. They say everything happens in three's. In three months, on the 3rd. month of cam deployment and three km. from my house. I finally get the top three. This is the earliest Bear pic to date for me.

You're in a great area. I would guess from your posts that the frequency ranking is bear, mountain lion, and wolf (if you correct for scarcity of bear in winter). (We now have wolves breeding one county away, but I don;t have plans to go after them.)

That’s pretty cool. When would you normally get your first bear pictures of the season?

Your frequency assumptions are spot on. 3 days ago we did have a Cougar 2 houses North of me, so that was exciting. https://www.cheknews.ca/large-cougar-gi ... re-426554/ Tap onto the small Google Earth square at the bottom left of the map to view what this area looks like. I'm happy to hear that Wolf has returned to California and is reclaiming what was once their home.

Mid-April it starts up and peaks around mid-May then hiking in the woods is exciting again. They are not so much a danger but a constant reminder that you could come across one at any moment. Sort of like the neighbourhood thug. You give em their space and don't piss em off and everybody gets along just fine. Pound for pound they are the top dog in these parts.

Down here a cougar periodically strolls past a school at the edge of the green belt. That's enough to shut the school down. My neighbor camera trapped his own cat strolling down a trail near his house. Three photos at night. The first 2 of the cat going, the 3rd of the cat in the jaws of the mountain lion moving toward the camera.
