Default I need a better camera (Bobcat pics)

Saw this guy today. He was on private property, so I could only shoot him with my crappy camera.
About 75yds away, hunting mice. I parked the truck and got out with the camera.


Circled around behind him about 40-50yds away and took a knee behind a bush.


Gave a few lip squeaks and here he comes



He got about 12-15 feet away before he figured something was up and made a hard right.


He trotted off and gave me the look-back before heading out of sight.


He was right next to public land, I'll go back and turn my dog loose on him and see if we can get him tree'd before 1-1-13

I was bear hunting today. Saw this cat while driving to another spot. Saw some bear tracks this morning but they were old and my dog didnt pick up any scent from them. Only HOT scents she picked up were deer. Going out again next weekend.

I hunt some animals for their fur only and some for food. Some both food and fur. I don't care what anyone else thinks. I have no probs killing a animal legally for it's fur. It's been that way since cave men invented arrow heads. You think they just killed for food and clothing???? Think again.

No, TPT, people did kill to survive, but we don't have to anymore. People have evolved and dramatically increased in number. Animal populations have dwindled everywhere, because of us. It would be nice if you think this over and WOULD care. There is plenty of hunting to be done without being random. At least donate what you don't want to eat to Hunters for Hunger and feed someone else.

Too bad on the dog deal too. Lots of folks had big money in bear and cat dogs. Me I just had a few potlicking hog dogs that any pound would probably reject. Nice pictures. I'd like to have a cat mount some day

No problem with how you were raised and how you see it, but on what grounds would you extend your personal beliefs on everyone else?

There are certainly other things that you were raised to do differently, so by extension I would assume those are all "shame" too?

If the world worked that way, scavenger species couldn't survive since there would be no leftovers from the predators.

You do have a point about suggesting donation since it is a kind thing to do. One can choose to donate to overcrowding human population, or one can choose to donate to the dwindling scavenger and other animal population. Nothing wrong with supporting the animals and helping the latter by leaving some food behind in the field.

I don't eat Bobcat and Coyote meat, because I don't want to feed the stereotype... But I will wear the hell out of a Bobcat hat!

Great photos.

Reachouter, I am going to kill all of the coyotes I can and leave them under a bush just for you buddy. Don't come on to a hunting forum and talk crap about people doing something that is perfectly legal no one here wants to hear it.

Good job Dave, we need to make another night run soon.

I love those pictures. You did an amazing job with your not so great camera. I would have chickened out when it got that close. Good job.

ok tell me what bush and we can meet there anytime. i did not say anything bad about hunting for food. I have hunted bear,dear, pigs and birds. I have a bear rug from the bear i got a few years ago, but i hunt for food not just the rug.

to all you keyboard cowboys.....I said it just my .02 not trying to start a war. I also thought this was a gun site not just a hunting site. this is my last post in this thread.
