    Bobcat and skunk

    These were on my DSLR camera trap this morning. Camera is in a weatherproof pelican case using a motion sensor and three off camera flashes.

    That is some surreal background. Queen kitty looks fat just like I like. Do you use a bait or any lure? I love to trap and put up fur. Fur is the Original Renewable resource. I have harvested skunks and collected scent but you really find out who’s your friend. In very short order the dogs and cat won’t even come around.

    Nice!

    Must have warmed up a bit over there, skunks usually stay in their dens unless it warms up a bit. I have been seeing more bobcat sign (tracks) this last fall when out hunting artifacts. I think I should get back out and do some trapping.

    I used to trap about every fur bearer there is years ago but now only with a camera...I did put some skunk based predator lure in the end of that old log.

    My friend, Trapping fur is a treasure hunt that puts money in my pocket. When wildlife has no harvest to manage population it becomes Shoot Shovel Shut-up.
    Managed harvest is renewable, sustainable, organic.
    I somehow know that my reasons and answer will never never satisfy but I look foreword to explaining more if you wish

    Was a time I'd have looked at the bobcat and thought "$500"..but that was long ago.
    Back in the 80's I was running long lines in the Mt. Baker area. In the late 70's and
    early 80's I was a rabid predator caller, hunting night/day every weekend. I understand
    the justification for trapping and hunting.

    In 1991 I had trapped a coyote that had wandered through our yard. Simple
    trail set, and the next morning I found a young female coyote caught by
    a back foot in a #2LS.

    Beautiful looking critter, she was, and in all honestly the thought of taking her
    life was painful...and I knew then that I'd hit my limit, and was tired of taking
    critters lives. I looked her in the eye and told her if I ever saw her around my house
    again it would be curtains for her. Then, got her back foot stretched in between a couple
    saplings and turned her loose. Never saw her again.

    That is a cool set-up Ron..hope it continues to produce those kinds of shots..

    Those are GREAT shots Ron! Bobcats are SO beautiful, just one of nature’s greatest creations. Even though I’ve never been a game hunter or fisherman, I totally get the need to manage populations when they might be getting out of whack. Here in Wisconsin, deer strikes are a serious SERIOUS problem for motorists, especially motorcyclists. If it weren’t for the fact that the kill might spoil by the time it could be dragged out of the woods, a “year round” season might actually be a reality. They are EVERYWHERE! We do have the very rare bobcat sighting in southern Wisconsin, but the ones that are around are very elusive.
    Anyway...great pics, I hope you post others when they come up!

    Oh yeah I forgot....We DO have a whole BUS LOAD of coyotes you can have, you just pay shipping.
