  1. Dad sent me these two pictures today. Looks like some Bobcats are prowling around. Anyone have any other cool pictures?

    Not on the Trail Cam, but I live pretty close to the old 20th century bowling alley, and when I pulled in last night, I found a fox chasing a rabbit, catch it, and then just start eating it right in front of me.

    Probably wouldn't have a fox issue if the neighbors two doors down didn't have a bunch of chickens.

    Did the fox say anything?

    Well, when I said "too too too too tootoototoo," it ran away. So, I think I probably threatened to kill it in Foxenese.

    Nice pictures Brett. I can try to take some pics of roadkill on my way to work, but that probably won't do much good.

    My mom got a picture of a mountain lion last year around Cherokee.
     
  9. Haha ya. I wish the one with 3 cats in it was earlier in the day. Think it is a mom with 2 kittens. First time I have seen bobs on the trail cam.

    I saw some rednecks trying to pounce on a mouse at a pumpkin patch Saturday morning in Nebraska. I guarantee you it was way more entertaining.

    They were Fusker hans too.

    Boobs would have been equally awesome.

    Yeah, hope you get some better pictures of the kittens. Try to post them if you do, that'd be pretty cool. Hopefully they don't get anyone out shooting at them.

    Im hoping to get my first bobcat this year. I usually just have coon sets but am going to throw out some legholds specifically set up for bobcats as I have seen a few on my dirtroad. I stopped setting fox sets because I always felt bad after catching one so I think ill quit after my first bobcat.

    Without reading anything, how the hell do Mountain Lions get all the way here, and how can the DNR confirm its a male without even seeing it?
     
  16. Because the DNR released them but won't tell anyone.

    Most animals that are not common in Iowa (mt lion, bears, etc) are juvenile males looking for their own territory.

    You can tell by the way it is.

    Mountain lions have been here for years, found tracks around 1998 and horses were attacked in 2000. Im assuming those werent the very first lions around. They come here because we have fantastic habitat and food sources. The DNR didnt release them (im assuming that was a joke) but many people beleive that because theyve been found with tracking chips in them which means nothing, just they were being tracked. Most people assume they come across the river in the winter.

    What I find more interesting is the growing numbers of black bear reports especially in sw iowa which makes no sense to me whatsoever.
