Bobcat while in the stand
« on: October 10, 2018, 07:16:51 PM »
First bobcat i've ever seen in person. Hung out for almost 10 minutes, often sitting down looking as large as my dog.

Anything that is free is worth saving up for.

They are so cool.  A couple of years ago we had one on our trail cam in our spruces.  That was a major event for us.

I don't know what I'd rather see most from a stall, safe deer stand: a bear, a wolf, a bobcat, or a cougar.

Way cool.  For obvious reasons, we have a "bobcat" stand. 
Steve-o, for me it would be bobcat for sure.

My rarest sightings have been a young fisher and a white weasel.  The fisher climbed the tree next to us to check us out; the way gray squirrels sometimes do.  The weasel was kinda fun because it came by when I was sitting on the ground overlooking a cattail slough.

If I had to pick one of the four critters I proposed earlier, I'd say I'd like to see a wolf someday - although not enough to hope they expand into the area where I deer hunt.

Wolves are a little scary, but mountain lions are down right terrifying.  I'd feel somewhat confident I could scare a wolf off and it wouldn't come back to eat me.  Lions are ambush hunters, and if I lost sight of it, I wouldn't feel safe until I got back into my vehicle.
