We heard the same thing three weeks ago (before fire). Someone said it weighed 300 pounds, but a friend who helped his Ph.D. son tag cougars said 190-200 is considered to be a big one

Just came off a section hike from Hwy 138 NOBO in OR.  Was supposed to go to Olallie Lake but stopped at McKenzie Pass because of new fire there and the cont'd fire North of Santiam Pass.  Lloyd Gust, trail angel superhero, told me that a lot of hikers have seen a cougar on the trail north of Santiam, presumably displaced by the fire.  He made it sound like nearly every hiker had seen it for several days now.  Any input from hikers?

Damn that Sisters Wildeness section is beautiful!!
