Something new today for me today in the turkey woods.
I have spring turkey hunted TX, MO, IN, MI, PA,OH and I had a first time occurrence today. Had my decoys out at a place I have taken 8 spring gobbler over the last few years in OH, calling to some distant gobbler when I saw movement coming into my decoys, hard to seen at first as it was using the brush etc. to it's advantage. Believing it is a turkey silhouette passing from cover to cove, I looked the other way for a second to see it there were any trailing turkeys I might spook if I had to move. Then I looked back and to my amazement there was a bobcat standing between me and my decoys.
He stood there I guess puzzled and then walked off. I made a hen call with my diagram call, but he walked off faster.
I have had 2 foxes, a coyote and now a bob cat come into my decoy spread.
Enjoyed the experience, as I did the when I saw 3 bobcats walk under my archery stand in KS and the 2 Lynx I saw while bear hunting in Canada. Wish I would have had my camera.
