Not sure, but that didn't appear to be a Bobcat to me....more Mountain lion! In my area a Bobcat is much smaller.

With the camo on and not moving cat didn't know what to think. They were no harm, so it won't scared. If they had moved quick, cat would of hauled ass. It smelled them, but they are very curious animals...
Smartest pet I ever had. Had bird dogs, that were top of the line, and a shepard that was a X police dog that was very smart . Tigger was a trip and more like a child. She loved beer to. No kidding. She changed me . Still have a gun safe full of guns, have not left the house, to go hunting one time after having her and use to live to hunt growing up. . Tigger was a she, but the name fit .

Thanks for posting. Cool video.

Definitely a bob cat. Some get quite large.

Bobcat for sure. They get pretty big here too these days now that they are pretty well protected. And he did indeed spot them smell them etc. Just curious.

I was hiking in Yosemite a few years ago and we came around this large boulder on the trail - big bobcat coming our way ... not as big as that one...... He looked at us - we froze - he slowly turned around on the trail and for around an hour we hiked 50 yards behind.... Very cool animals

They WILL follow you to and from a deer stand, as well. It's a little nerve wracking at times as you're wondering if they're sizing you up to make a move.

So I'm sure you guys are correct. My bad! A search of facts say weight is 19-30 Lbs. That cat sure looks bigger than that, or is it just that pic that throwing me?http://bigcatrescue.org/bobcat-facts/

When I drove a jeep in Germany, I was driving my Captain and we drove between two giant boulders. We were on maneuvers and had no doors on the jeep. We entered a small clearing about 100 foot across. There were several HUGE wild boars, and right next to us (on the captain's side, he -he) a sow and a bunch of piglets. I had stopped as soon as I saw all of them (before I saw piglets). I reversed and we very slowly backed out. Discretion is the better part of valor. We found another way around.

You could cut the tension with a knife.

Big cat.

I try to reconcile my pro hunting beliefs with the fact that I could never kill such a beautiful animal. Deer and pigs are meant to be eaten, but I just cant wrap my head around killing certain animals. Maybe if they truly became vermin like coyotes.

bobcats and mountain lions look nothing alike.

Bobcat in that video.

This is a cougar/mountain lion
