I've had 7 sets out for cats in some of the best cat territory I have ever seen. It took a lot of work scouting and making sets in snow up to our waists but after 6 nights this 18lb female finally came back through and stepped in the same track she made two days ago. Happy to collect my first bobcat and start the new year off on a good note.
yep a blind set in those rocks. Do you see the log laying along the rock on the left? That log was leaning against the rock on the left side of the pic at a 45 degree angle. Two days ago this cat walked between that log and the rock wall. I set a #4,4 coiled duke's pan exactly in her track with no bait or lure. This cat came trough this same area in it's same tracks on saturday night, weds night and again last night when I caught her. I made the set thursday morning after seeing her fresh sign. My stepdad has a set on the front side of that rock about 55 yds away that she bypassed weds night by going on the back side of the rock. These rocks are the size of houses and covered in cat sign. We have been working 5 different cats in two different locations about 1 mile apart. Not the biggest we have seen sign of but it fulfills a life long dream and I am very pleased to harvest such a awesome animal in Pa's woods.
yep,that looked like the perfect blind location.and after many years of releasing these animals it is great we can finally harvest them.now if we could just get to do the same with otters one day.again nice cat!
