Think I may have a bobcat in yard...either that or a big stray cat. Walking dogs and went about 10 feet from tree line where we go everyday and about 20 feet into trees heard a cat snarl...my Terrier bowed up...my Lab whimpered. We are in county but in a city limit. Have an acre lot then 100 yards of pretty dense trees until it opens up to a horse farm.

Attach a feather to some string...hang the feather about three and half to four feet from the ground where the feather will freely hang with out tangling in the brush or other tree limbs...mount your game camera pointing at the feather...if it's a cat they can't stand it...they'll try and get the feather...or...build a large V in the brush...hang a shiny, preferably red Christmas ornament on a string inside the back of the V...place your camera pointing at the Christmas ornament...red ornament works best and make sure the cat has to enter from the mouth of the V...

Went into woods yeaterday looking and found area to be very dense and grown up...anything could live back there somewhat safely! Did see some old junk around trees that could be suffice as a den.
However, today my lab Madison went crzy and had me go to back door and I saw two very large cats....at least 20 pounds a piece...case closed! I put her on a leash and opened door...they shot into woods where I heard noise.

If you can locate a small animal cage trap, I'd recommend baiting it with "opened" canned tuna or salmon. Most bobcats will not pass up this stinky meal. It will also allow you to capture it and relocate it (or rather, let a gamewarden relocate it for your own safety).
Also, bobcats typically travel in pairs. So beware! Usually in a male female team.

pretty sure it's the local cats but the wooded area behind us is perfect habitat...grown up and thorns...75-100 yards of woods between us an dhorse farm. We don't let our dogs off leash and they stay inside. But I am keeping my eyes and ears open.

On occasion I'll see a large black cat near the pond and a white one who meanders all over my place...I guess he's whipped all my dogs since they won't bark or chase him...these two are rat killing machines...
