I have never caught a Bobcat, although I have set for them for the past couple years, or more. Question: In known Bobcat territory, [ Trail cam pictures and sightings and tons of Snowshoe Hares ], there is an area best described as follows: Extremely dense Cedar growth, amongst huge rocks which are covered with moss, creating hundreds of natural cubbies, tunnels, and "caves", very uneven terrain, steep grade, down to a year around stream full of boulders. I beat my way into this jungle last week. At the stream, there is also an old Beaver dam, holding back several acres of pond. The stream goes from a trout stocked HUGE pond, a couple of miles to a Trout stocked river. I did pull an Otter out of the stream 2 years ago. Does this sound like a good spot for a few sets for 'cats? I saw no tracks or scat, however, there is so much moss that tracks are probably non-existent.

The spot you want to set is both ends of that beaver dam. The cats hang around beaver and will cross on the dam.
