Had a visitor this morning. Not that common around here. Sorry for the poor quality as pics were shot through the kitchen window. I did manage to get some through my binocs. A large one for these parts.
We had a cougar in Suburban Chicago a few months ago. You love to see animals like that -until you realize why they're there: some developer wrecked their home.
I hope your Bobcat does well. If he has someone's poodle for supper, I hope he doesn't get caught.
A couple years ago just before we were going to start shooting on Sat. night (trap) someone said "Look at those puppies out on the 200 yd. backstop". I thought that peculiar so I got some binoc's and watched some fox kits (4 I think) playing right at the bottom of the backstop. I then scoped out mom hiding/watching from the weeds. As soon as the first shot went off they hightailed it for the den ON THE LEFT FACE OF THE BACKSTOP! With the way I've seen rifle shooters shoot at the club I'd say they were perfectly safe! LOL
The first time that I saw a bobcat, I thought it's tail had been cut off in some kind of accident. LOL! I described it to a guy on the adjoining farm to see if he had seen cat with a cut off tail and he started laughing at me.
Never saw one in my life until I moved to Maryland.
