Oh, for heaven’s sake. What is that?

Yesterday I moved the game camera to a view of the wash.

This morning at seven AM, this happened…

bobcat
I do believe that’s an extremely curious bobcat, but couldn’t swear to it in court. 😀

You shouldn't ask these questions of a paranoid recluse, you know.

    Looks like a bobcat to me too. Unfortunately, he/she is much too close! Maybe move the camera back and up a bit?

    After you back the camera up, try to raise it a bit, and maybe lean up against a post or something to steady the shot…

    Yeah, if I’d known what was on the mem card I’d have checked to see if the cat sprayed the damned thing. Right at the end it bumps the camera with its ass, for crying out loud. Not convinced backing the camera up more would have helped. 🙂

    Put out some catnip about 10 feet in front of the camera and wait. I too think it is a bobcat or lynx.

    That’s…actually an interesting idea.

    Joel, your camera has just been marked with cat scent to establish territorial boundaries. You did leave your scent on the camera, I imagine. I’ve seen lynx do this at one of my chairs in the Alaska forests. That cat smelled you! Very nice! **

To the stake with the heretic!
