Got my cat today!

I set 8 cables around my house a couple of days ago at a 7" loop, 8" up for red fox. There are a pile of cats around, and truth be told, I was hoping one would wander through one. I got pics of a giant one right by the stand where I got my buck and my girl got her first deer, this year. Today when I pulled up to the trail, there was a deer standing in the middle of the road, a nice 8pt. He started trotting down the trail and I see him suddenly jump a few feet in the air, into the brush and he was gone. As I pulled up to the trail, there was a small one side spike standing on the other side of the road. I was pointing it out to my little girl and I looked down the trail and see a huge area of golden rod flattened. I then realized why the 8pt had reacted like he did, I had something in the cable. I walk down the trail and immediately hear a deep growl coming from around the corner. I knew what it was right then. I look to see a nice cat standing there. She walks right up to me twitching her tail and growling and hissing. I decide she is plenty big enough for me and decide to take her. She weighed in at 26lbs and has a real nice belly for a PA cat. My first one in a cable, in season.

Sweet!

Since I have never seen one here in Pa., is that Bobcat a young one? I ask because I don't see the darker ear tips and the flash of fur out each side of the jaws.
