Predators and prey atop a windy ridge

Google Earth led me to a spot high on a ridge in search of mountain lions. My first camera placement there was a total bust with very little activity for months. But then, I moved the camera about 25 yards. What a difference that small move made. Within weeks, I was seeing activity by all sorts of animals, including a gorgeous mountain lion.

Check out the short video if you have time!


  1. love how concentrated the cat looks and listens...

  2. news to me that a person can hunt mountain lions by using google earth. glad you moved the cam. i love the lions and the bobcats a lot

  3. What a great location you found. We can't wait to see what else you find roaming through that site.

  4. I love the video...thanks for the effort it must take to set up and retrieve the videos
