    Familiar with bobcat tracks, this one was easily twice as big, 3+inches wide. Still hunting for the GSMNP track pic, might be on my old 3G iphone which is dead. The other pic I have is from a dry riverbed in Olympic NP. FWIW, my usual camps in FL are in one of the habitats of Fl panthers which are closely related to TX cougars. I've never seen one or its prints in many years and 1000s of miles of hiking there.

    Not much said over all...
    But their news about the kitties is 10 confirmed sightings across multiple counties.

    TWRA has very stringent guidelines for confirming a sighting. The info in post #1 doesn’t even come close.

    Agreed.
    The sighting in post #1 was simply a poor visual siting (400lbs? ) with no supporting evidence.

    Being the most visited NP with lack of mule deer population and no evidence of mountain lion elk or whitetail kills I see little evidence of a resident puma population in GSMNP.

    Everyone (me included) was certain there were no mountain lions in CT before a car hit one that roamed in from South Dakota about 10 years back.

    Resident population is a higher bar, of course.
