Early Sunday morning.

It's the first Sunday of Wisconsin's 9 day deer gun season, so as a runner I am confined to the resort unless I care to dress in blaze orange which isn't exactly my best color, plus the sound of high powered rifles make me jumpy.I live and work in one of the most beautiful parts of the country. the Chequamegon National Forest. As part of my resort ownership I also have a bar which of course I also have to work. That is what resort ownership is work, work & work. I have many guests and friends that are somewhat disturbed by my running alone up here in the Northwoods and they are always advising me on the latest wild animal sighting, ugh. Well last night in the bar it was about a Cougar sighting just a 1/2 mile down the road and of course on my regular running route. I of course laughed it off. I refuse to be afraid, because If I can't run outside, it would be really bad, running is my stress release, my religion. where I write and where a I clear my head. My friends also said that cougars can't distinguish between animals and humans and they chase anything, not quite sure I believe that but if anyone knows that for a fact let me know. I did google Cougars in Wisconsin and of course they have been sighted but not in my county and are often mistaken for large bobcats, which I have seen and actually hit one with my car this summer, oops. So I am going to go with that theory because I am not afraid of bobcats.
Back to the hunting, we have around 20 hunters here at the resort this week and as far as I can tell they haven't shot anything yet, so the deer are winning. I love the deer but get that we need a hunting season and I do enjoy venison but am always happy to see the deer that survive the hunt.
That's all for now.
