Had a farmer tell me his property is loaded with Bobcats. Never heard such a thing before, but he went on to explain that the Organic Free Range Chicken and Duck Farm over the hill is probably keeping them around.
I love OFRCDF----Organic Free Range Chicken and Duck Farms!

caught one last year, but had to release due to lack of tag. caught him in one random set i was trying to nail a fox in. only had one set out and nabbed him in like 3 hrs without a fresh track in the area. have the tag this year and plan on havin a line of about 20-30 out. have scouted several areas and have found cat tracks in a half dozen or more. have the tag.... and bet i strike out
oh well, it's fun just laying the steel out there! good luck!!!

Yes they do like free ranging ducks. Back in the early 90's we had one here and it ate a bunch of our ducks, wasn't as interested in the chickens as in the ducks. It also got a goose and went over a fence with it. At night it would scream, not at all like a fox bark, and we had a bit of snowfalls and it was walking all over the top back part of the property. DNR was contacted and someone with them said it was a large house cat making those tracks LOL. I didn't know feral really big maine coon cats screamed at night and liked to dine on ducks! LOL LOL

Hope to run strong... Been planning/preping for this since march of last year. Who knows??? Not to be greedy, but I plan on being selective. Would really like to harvest a large male to have mounted. Good luck to all.

Primary target will be a cat. Coyote and a strong grey population as well. Will be using dirt hole, hay set, flat sets, blind sets. Will also have a few cable restraints for the yotes. Below is my tracking sheet to see what works where. Any picks from this list on yours?
