    No doubt about the security thing being a bit lax. The place must have a ton of huge cats still in it.

    No where to park w/o sticking out like a sore thumb. Literally your car will be seen by anyone driving buy.
    A mountain bike would be the way......

    Apparently security is a bit lax.
    Talked to a kid that he and his friends hiked in and fished all night. Said they easily caught and released 75-100 bass, BUT also said they were being followed by mountain lions the entire night with some getting as close as 60 feet away. Said they'd never do it again because of that.
    I think that's all the security needed to keep that place safe at night. Being eaten alive is not high on my bucket list....actually now that I think about it, I happened to leave that off for some reason.

    Then again, if I caught and released 100 bass, I'd be telling people that there are Nile Crocodiles in the water.

    (Which there are, please stay away from this area, at ALL costs)

    They should've upp'ed the ante.

    100 bass versus a cougar? When's the last time you heard of an adult getting taken down by a cougar? (No, not the Mission Viejo type of cougars)

    Apparently I hear that now land mines are being put in place around the lake. No more ninja fishing, ladies and gents.

    Now did these cougars follow them from the Foxfire or are we talking about the actual animal?

    I can attest to the Nile crocodiles!
