So most of you know not to long ago I dispatched a bobcat in my area a female cat weighing in at 23 lbs, Tonight I was making my usual rounds with my Spot light and caught glimps of a set of eyes I knew instinctivly was a set of large cat eyes. Unarmed I approached my hay bails slowly with my light turned off in complete darkenss. As I quietly got within 8-10 feet of my bails I spot lighted him and it was at least a 30 pounder he was giant Sitting on that hay bail like he was the king of my pasture. Bobcats don't typically share a residence females live a life alone and they hunt in a 1-15 mile radius unless food is scarce then it can extend up to 50 miles. they usually Border territorys with males for breeding purposes by over lapping boundrys. However they will share there residence with a male if they are raising cubs so that the male can guard them while the female hunts for the first 2 weeks. before she allows the cubs out with her on the prowl. So all I can assume from tonights encounter is that there is cubs involved. and the male is taking the females roll since she is gone. Since I am uninterested in Killing young animals who havent had even a chance to enjoy a piece of life yet I have Contacted my Local state trapper. to relocate this or these animals. As bad as I would love to eradicate I got to lay my arms down on this one and accept it for what it is until its resolved. Let us Hope that it doesnt cost me to much poultry in the process. I will go track him tomorrow to at least see if I can verify any proof of cubs in the area.
