Watching a pretty interesting documentary on netflix.  Lot of footage from Alaska and Glacier National Park.



Seem like pretty cool but very elusive animals.



I know it's friday...so in before any possum or X-Men references.

I used to hunt them in Alaska with my 12 guage.  I got like 50 of them.

They kept trying to attack my cousins.  What would you do in a situation like that?

Guy here posted a few years back about his hunt, with pics. They're pretty large when laid out.

Never seen any wolverines, but I've seen a few bobcats in the wild.

One time was while I was unarmed and only had a knife (was 16 at the time, high centered my 4-wheeler after the tires slid into a rut) and walked the fuck out 2 miles to get another ATV to pull mine out. Fun shit.

Probably got within 40 yrds of the motherfucker as it was the only way out and was watching my ass the entire time. It growled at me and I swore I could have ran like Forest Gump.

And I seen the other while bow hunting.

Trap them

We just don't have them where I trapped.

Saw one a few years ago hiking back from a campout near the Middle Fork of the Salmon River in Idaho.  Me and a friend.  We thought it was pretty awesome.

No Wolverines, but have seen a few Badgers.

Saw one on the east side of Wolf Creek Pass once back in the late 80's. Just briefly from a distance, but after spending so much time around there without seeing so much as a sign of one, it was kind of interesting. Before that I didn't even know we had them around here.

Only seen one once in the past 10 years. They are elusive critters.

Hmm, the Colorado Division of Wildcritters says we don't have any that far south. But these are the same folks that claimed there were no wolves in southern Colorado.

They probably came in from New Mexico.

Wait.  A bobcat?

I once saw one in the Canadian Rockies. It just wandered by.
Link Posted: 4/29/2011 8:57:43 PM EDT
I saw one that was roadkill once.  I was on a driving trip from NY to Alaska.  I think it was in the Yukon Territory where I saw it.

Have yet to see one alive in the wild.

You all are seeing possums.

I saw a fisher in MN once while grouse hunting.  It walked across the trail ahead of us like we didn't exist.  Crazy looking beast it was.
