    Bobcats

    Im thinking I may have a Bobcat Preserve on my place.
    Probably why I have only had 1 Jake on Camera so far this year with Turkey Season a week away.
    Wish Treasure was this easy to find... lol

    Looks like a breeding pair. A Bobcat, like any cat, is territorial,
    so odds are you only have the two (at least til she has kittens).

    Awesome critters...

    Guessing then that it's mom and dad with the kittens, plus a yearling cub.

    With the females in the dens with kittens, the male generally does 90%
    of the hunting, but she will hunt too if the need arises. Can't imagine
    them allowing another adult cat to be around those kittens. A mother
    bobcat will protect those kittens just like a mother bear, and she's
    not gonna tolerate strangers hanging around.

    36 lbs. is big cat..like one fattened up on turkey's. Did you get it
    during the winter when the pelt was prime?

    Yes I harvested the Bobcat in December 2018, while deer hunting about 100 yards further down the bayou.
    When I went got it, i had to cross the beaver dam, and stopped in front of one of the game cameras with it to get some pics.
    When I checked the game camera next time, there was 3 pics of me with the Bobcat, and the very next pics was another bobcat smelling the blood of the one I had harvested. Neighbors Wife also harvested one the previous year, and we still seeing them on camera very regular.

    All good. Never been one to use the term "harvest", as I find it
    misleading. We harvest corn and beans, but when we hunt an
    animal we kill it.
