Well.... appears the old trail cam pics thread went to prison soooo here's a new one.

Wish I could have seen this guy while I was out there hunting.

Wow.. those are nice. The elk is spectacular! I keep bees, so I'm cool with not having bears around my place, but they sure are a neat treat to see. My train cam pics by comparison are quite tame... whitetail, coons, possum, gray fox, coyote, etc. No Chupacabra or Bigfoot yet! laugh

Saw a bobcat while hunting yesterday, but no bears or elk in my neck of the woods. Ditto on the elk - wow!

Seeing a Bobcat is very lucky in person. I have only seen one once in my life time and if it was not for the dog getting it to turn on him I don't think I would have seen it.

Great picture of the elk. Are they in the rut there now? Our white tail have just started the rut and colour change for winter.

I saw a young bobcat for the first time a few years back while it stalked a squirrel right under my stand. Then it chased it up a tree about 30 feet away and unsuccessfully tried to catch it in the tree before coming down and moving on. I only saw this one while it crossed a trail. It was a good sized cat,

Thanks guys. I actually got a bobcat on cam up there for the first time ever this year. No one that I know has ever seen one up that high, but they are there now for some reason.

The elk aren't SUPPOSED to be rutting there now. The archery season was originally supposed to cover most of the elk rut there, but things have definitely changed. I was there until the last day of archery this year and the rut never seemed to kick in. There is a break with no hunting between archery season and the first rifle season, but they are rutting later and seems like the last few years the rut has carried over into the rifle seasons more and more. One of my buddies said they were still bugling like crazy and chasing cows during his rifle hunt. That kind of makes it like shooting fish in a barrel, IMO.

Sure would be nice if CO would adjust the seasons back a week or so, but that will never happen.

Wife and I saw a large bobcat cross a private road 2 miles from our home. She rolled down her window a bit and jokingly said, "here kitty kitty..." to which it stopped in an easement adjacent to the forest, looked over it's shoulder with a you-could-be-lunch glare, and stepped into the woods like a ninja... only time I've been able to get a really good look at one in the wild.

We've seen two over the course of the last three years. Or maybe seen the same one twice. Very cool animals, I like the idea of them being around. Certainly not worried about them where personal safety is concerned.

This is from 5 years ago but it was still kinda freaky to find this mangy coyote on the trailcam (cool 8 second video to go with it).

Especially considering the date, and we had a full moon that night. Ha!

I used to wonder if bobcats were big enough to go after deer. After I caught this on camera, I don't wonder anymore...

The evening that I saw the bobcat, I did not see any deer. Cats are powerful animals. Saw 6 deer Tuesday evening and 2 last night. Have not yet seen a shooter buck. The young ones are rubbing, scraping, and slowly following does. It should heat up soon.

Very cool pic! I actually had started a thread on here with a sequence of four pics my buddy's cam got of a bobcat killing a deer. The thread is gone for some reason. I had also underestimated what a bobcat can do. I figured they could only take fawns but that is dead wrong.

This is from a few years ago, but it's one of the best videos I've ever gotten. Coyote starts a chase with a buck

Nice! I like the portion where you just see the reflection of the eyes popping up at the edge of the throw... like they are both trying to figure out what the next move is... haha...

My dad has a lot of exotics on his high-fenced ranch in the Texas hill country. A few years back, he was checking fence line and noticed an unusual area of disturbed grass/leaves. When he walked up on it, it was a partially eaten 95 lb blackbuck antelope covered with leaves. He called a trapper out and they ended up finding the 30-ish pound bobcat that took it down. Cats are designed in every way to be pure killing machines.

Tbar, I forgot to say that is a really nice mature buck. He is built like a thorough bred horse

Bad news. Look what I found on one of my trail cams. 30 minutes after I sent his picture to the game warden they knew who he was.
