Rye NH Mountain Lion sighting

I am quite certain I spotted a mountain lion from my treestand this morning near Berry's Brook in Rye, NH. I heard a twig snap about 15 yards to my right, and spotted the animal moving behind a big tree. This was about 10 minutes before sunrise at 6:15AM, after I had been sitting in the treestand for 45 minutes. Weather was overcast with a slight drizzle and no wind. The animal appeared to be about the height of a good-sized fawn, and much bigger than a coyote. Initial identifying characteristics were its round head, lean muscular body, and the long downward sloping tail with an upturned tip, the last one became visible once it moved from behind a tree. What confirmed the identification for me was the way it moved like a cat (a big one). Nothing like a deer or coyote, both of which are plentiful in these woods. With the exception of the snapping twig, it was striking how stealthily it moved for it's size, making no sound.
