We are conducting surveys, monitoring, and research on cougars (puma, mountain lion) on the Ladder Ranch in south-central New Mexico. Here, cougars are of particular interest given their effects on state-endangered desert bighorn sheep and other valuable big game. These projects are also resources for training and education, most notably through the Cougar Field Workshop.

Eleven photos of uncollared cougars were collected during the same time period that we recorded two photos of LM1 and LF1. There appear to be at least one uncollared male and one uncollared female in these photos.

As outfitters in Wyoming, we have been running our own study on lion for over thirty years. We use the Camtrakker motion sensor camera. We became aware years ago that the female lion has her own range with overlapping areas of other females. The tom cat makes a regular travel through the area checking territorial scratches.
