If it makes you feel better the odds you run into a cougar are next to none. I've lived in Montana and Wyoming my entire life and camp a ton and I think I've seen two off in the distance. Also, this cougar isn't stalking that guy it's likely a mother trying to scare him away from her babies hidden somewhere. If a cougar is stalking you, you'll never even know until it's too late.

yeah if you watch the video he mentions it.  I also believe he made comments after that she was with her cubs

So.....salute Husker players, coaches, and parents for fighting to get the 2020 season back, hate on the national sports pundits for dissing Nebraska, but.........don't bother to watch the game becaus

I hate doing this, but I will make you a bet.  Ohio State wins by three touch downs.  If they don't I will stay off the board for six months.  If they do Sker you stay off for a month.  Put you money where your mouth is.

 

Finally...something interesting happening in the football forum!

 

I want to make sure I understand the terms: Are you going to stay off the board for six months even if he doesn't take his side of the bet?

 

Honestly though, I don't want you to leave for six months; our poster count has gone down a lot as it is and we need as many people posting in the football forum as possible.

Alert, non Nebraska football related.  

After watch the video I am far more concerned about this.  Crazy stuff happens in Utah and Arizona.  Camping there for four days.  Headed out Thursday morning.  Trying to grow eyes in the back of my head!!!!!!

Definitely a bluff charge, the wide sweeping motion of the front legs say she has no intention of attacking unless you make the first move.  Just wants you to keep moving

Haven't listened to the audio so didn't catch that. The news articles all say "stalking" or attacking or something sensational when that's not even close to what she;s doing.

I think he says something to the tune of "I'm not by your babies, go back to your babies".  and I agree with you.  Show me one animal that stalks prey like that and I'll show you an animal that is going to be hungry a lot.

Awe gotcha! Dude really handled himself well you can't do it much better when it comes encountering a lion.

I ride a lot in wilderness areas.  I actually live next to one.  Have ran into a mountain lion, missed it by about 20 foot.  Sliding at her at a high rate of speed, and yelling like heck, it took off like a shot.  Also nearly hit a bear cub at night, missed it by about a foot.  Quit riding at night alone after that one.  

 

Appreciate the info on how to read her actions.  I saw mine for about 10 seconds.  We have a group of them living around are small community.  They have become quite brave, and I think hungry.  Fires have destroyed so much of their habitat.  They come into town and kill cats and dogs, llamas and goats.  One came in our kennel and attacked our dog about 5 years.  He made it, but was quite expensive.

 

California protects them, which I assume most states do.  We have to get a permit to kill one if it is attacking domestic animals.  The bad part is the forestry department will not move them.  They either die or move on on their own.  Sucks

 

As to this site losing posters, I have to agree.  This site only allows for one opinion.  If you don't agree with it, or have a different idea, you are not made to feel welcome.  It never used to be that way.  Most of the people that joined when I did are gone, never post anymore.  A lot of mods and even the site owners quit posting a long time ago.  There is a reason, and I don't think it is just because the Huskers are not winning like they used.  I have been a fan for over 60 years.  Used to be on this site every day, but seldom on it in the last two years.

OSU combined:  Punts and Turnovers

 

Over/Under 4

 

What say you?

I think 4 is fairly likely but...  Hate to say it if I was betting, I would say under.
