Campbell River hunter Adam Bartsch had a close encounter with a cougar the other day.
He was out “shed hunting”-looking for antlers that have been shed- and checking on trail cameras when he saw a cougar staring at him.
The cougar followed him as Bartsch continued on his way.
“15 metres away from me, look at him, just eyeing me up like I am a blacktail deer,” Bartsch can be heard saying near the end of the video, before making noise and attempting to scare the cougar away.
