Bobcat Sighting!

Discussion in 'Indiana Small Game Hunting' started by JL, Oct 23, 2006.

  1. It wasn't me, but my lease partner had a bobcat within fifteen yards of him tonight while he was hunting one of my stands. He said it was the sneakiest thing he's ever seen. He took a picture with his phone. If it's decent quality, I'll post it later.
     
  2. once in a life time op that would be neat to see not very many indiana hunters get that chance hopefully the pic is good like to see it
     

  3. I think that the proof would be the pudding in my shorts!

  7. bobcats

    I have only saw four in my 54 years, but 2 of those four have been in last few years. Indiana is growing a bobcat population, in the next few years I believe we will see them regularly............

    John Cervid..... care to comment?
     
  8. bobcat

    I saw a bobcat in 2004 in Parke County and many years ago on of my buddies dad had trapped a bobcat in a leg hold trap near Terre Haute.
     
  9. Cool. They are here in Steuben County that is for sure. I haven't seen one for a couple years now, but there were two years in a row that I saw one in the same field on the way to where I hunt. The first year I had one cross the road right in front of my truck. The next year I saw one in the same field about 80 to 100 yards off the road.

    They are here. Would be cool to start seeing them fairly regularly.
     
  10. i saw a big one 2 years ago gun hunting here at crane. never made a noise. sneakiest thing i ever saw.
     
  11. They are becoming a regular sighting to a lot of southern indiana hunters. My buddy saw one hit on the road next to his lease just last week.
     
  12. there is quiet a few in W. Va. where we hunt and I only have seen one in Indiana. There are a cool looking cat, I bet they would keep the other guys dogs out of your yard. HA!
     
  13. ive seen them around the land i hunt by racoon creek above the lake for along time. VERY COOL TO SEE!!
     
  14. Kinda blurry, but here it is:
