There is all kinds of easy prey for cougars and other predators. Cougars and other predatory cats are experts at picking out weaknesses. A deer that was injured would be certainly the first choice out of a herd. There is certainly other easy meals out there. A turkey would probably be easy pickings. They are slow, awkward and quite tasty. Look at all the bobcats turkey calls bring in.

To any predator the Canadian Geese migration must look like Manna from Heaven. During this time hundreds maybe even thousands of tired geese are resting in a open field at night. I recall hearing often alrams calls coming from fields of resting geese at night. To me this is a sure sign there is a predator at work. I imagine thats why we sometimes see geese flying at night. I think they are forced to fly at night by very persistant predators taking full advantage of the situation. I think this would be a perfect time to watch predators in action.

One night I hope to film these giant fields of geese at night.
