I spoke with a Warden in February about these areas. He flat out said its infested with lion and causing major problems. I've been trying to plan an extended trip up that way with the hounds to see if I can't chip away at the problem. I've hunted deer and birds in these areas at one time or another, saw the signs all over. Only place I've ever seen bobcat (3) hanging out in broad daylight. Beautiful country that used to be the tops for B&C deer.
