DISCOVERING | Cougars in the U.P. | Arctic Grayling Stocked in U.P. Waters


Episode 69 - 24-year-old hunter, Eli Schaefer captured what is probably the most incredible cougar video ever captured on a trail camera, right in the Upper Peninsula. The Michigan DNR confirmed 24 cougar sightings in the U.P. in 2023 and these photos/videos will bring that total to 26 for the year. I talked to Brian Roell of the Michigan DNR about the increase in cougar sightings.

Arctic Grayling now swim in U.P. waters. I chat with the DNR about their Arctic Grayling Initiative to restore a self-sustaining population back to their native streams in the Lower Peninsula, the history of Arctic Grayling in Michigan and the surplus brood stock they put in U.P. lakes.
