This year, as the JOURNEY AMERICA campaign continues, we follow big cat tracker Boone Smith, who has spent 20 years catching, collaring, and studying a total of nearly 500 cougars and pumas across Chile, California, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and Colorado. A fourth-generation tracker and roundsmen raised in Idaho, Smith uses his expertise to gather data on big cats, their behavior and their landscape to help scientists with conservation studies. Being inspired by Boone is the easy part, keeping up with him and some of the most elusive creatures in the world is another story...
