As thousands of deer hunters fanned out across Minnesota's woods Saturday, the buzz in tiny Wolf Lake was of a cougar captured on a trail camera two weeks ago.


Scott Koskela set up the Bushnell trail cam near an alfalfa field on his father, Leroy's property east of Wolf Lake.

Scott, who lives in Coon Rapids, didn't check the images on the camera until about a week ago.
