    Pic #2, bobcat or lynx? I'm ashamed to say that I'm not too sure. My predator hunting in the last 10 years has been limited to coyotes, we had a litter of beagle pups killed by a 'yote, so they have been in my sights. Great pics. I especially like the one with the black and white kitty. Last year my (then 5) year granddaughter chased on out behind the house "here kitty,kitty"

    They are bobcats, I take an average of 15 a year. Many are taken on calls from folks who have/had farm cats. Bobcats are death on them. They take a good number of fawns and lots of turkeys as well. Don't feel to bad for them. I don't trap to exterminate but to bring the numbers down in a given area where the landowner can live with them. The remainder also do better with less competitiveness for the available food source. There is a natural and cultural carrying capacity for critters, especially in areas of production. Tom
