Ok,so now that I've got your attention,lol......yes it's actually a cougar,but it's SW Alberta,about 80km SW of CGY.
My co-worker and his buddy were calling coyotes the other day,had this big'ol kitty in to 2 yards from the MOJO Critter.Pretty cool experience, not something you see every day,even in AB.

The kill is the satisfying, indeed essential, conclusion to a successful hunt. But, I take no pleasure in the act itself. One does not hunt in order to kill, but kills in order to have hunted. Then why do I hunt? I hunt for the same reason my well-fed cat hunts...because I must, because it is in the blood, because I am the decendent of a thousand generations of hunters. I hunt because I am a hunter.- Finn Aagard

I never lived in Rocky just spent a lot of time hunting up there. I own property outside of Longview, I'm not saying you were standing in my driveway, but if you're a half decent shot with a rifle and you turned around and faced east you could probably hit my mailbox from there.. Check out this pic taken on a day that wasn't quite as clear as the day you were there.
