    Hi Everyone,

    I live in Vermont and I was just curious if anyone else here does too.

    Have a great night!

    I'm not sure but if you're from the north you may not be allowed to say anything here but, if you're a yuppie it may go over ok.

    I'm in Vermont - originally from New Hampshire, but we moved here in Febuary. My hubby & I agree we'll never move back! We love it here!

    I was born and raised in Bennington,spent 34 years there and then opted for a little warmer climate. I do miss the snow once in a while and our 5 year old played for the first time in snow a couple years ago when we went for a visit in late march, it snowed a foot of the good ole white stuff the night we got there. She was totally fascinated with it.

    Nice to see all of you. I am almost 33 and have lived here all my life. I live in Morrisville, Vermont. I am waiting for the snow as well. I don't remember such a warm Halloween night for a long time. Happy Halloween.

    Hi all, and no, I'm not from Vermont, but I do have sort of a dumb question I need to ask. Has anyone heard of an animal called a tandemount? Don't even know if I'm spelling it right, but my dad used to tell us about his great-great-great grandfather who lived inside a fort structure to help keep away the Indians and the ? tandemounts. I haven't done a google search, which would make sense, but someone told me that it may be an animal from lands in and around Vermont. Any comments welcome. And sorry for butting in.

    Catamounts. Large native cat. Vermont Fish and Wildlife will tell you the last one was killed I think in the 1950's (the animal was stuffed and stands in the state museum). People who work in the woods occasionally spot something that looks remarkably like the cat that isn't supposed to exist any more.. very long body, very large cat, very long tail... quite unlike the bobcat which is known to still live in Vermont.

    Thank you so much. I'm robbing this thread again, but was wondering. From the way your post reads, was the catamount intentionally made extinct? I mean, was it a really dangerous animal that would require, say, a wooden fort for protection? Any links that I could visit to find out more? Again, thank you for the information. It's made my search much simpler, especially since I didn't even have the spelling right. :eek:

    Well, yea... but it is OUR mountain lion... so it is special!

    And yes, they were hunted into extinction.

    Our lion is not special. Its just a run of the mill mountain lion.I saw one in the late 60's in wardsboro vt. Many men i know that work in the woods have seen them cross logging roads.
