i haveve never seen a bobcat near my area in many years. Lots of coyotes in the past but me and a few friends have put a BIG dent in them over the last 4 years. I have been seeing several nice bucks and does with young ones with them. Have one young one with spots still on it, as it was born in late August or thereabouts. I am going to see if I can wait out for one of the big boys after we get a good frost. It is always fun and peaceful when in the timber hunting, even in the wind an cold.
