Just bobcats that like to hide under your buggy. Lol
Iím yet to hold a bear, but my day is coming. Iím not looking forward to it. I was really close last year, and thank god, he missed the pan. I had one thrash a hay set, and there was still snow on the ground so I got to see how close I came. Iím pretty sure if one steps in one of those K9 Extremes, itís gonna be waiting on me.

One thing I canít figure out, is why we donít have any porcupines around here. Iím not complaining, but if I drive about an hour and a half north into PA, you see quite a few of them dead alongside the road. That just doesnít seem very far away to not have them here at all.

If your trap is staked solid, it is going to be tough to hold onto a bear. JC Connor told me that he held a bear in a jake trap. I believe it. But I have caught a lot of bears a jake trap would not have held.

I really like it when I see my cable past the wrist of a bear. Any lower, I shoot quick.

A self release definitely wonít hurt my feelings. Iíve been seeing quite a few pics lately around here of guys holding them in the 100-150lb range though. Andy Weiser holds one thatís about 200lb in a #3 Montana on his video. Also just saw one in an MB550 over on Tman. I hope my day never comes. I have one section of my line thatís loaded with bear.

I'll tell you, trapping up on the mountain around camera #2 and #3, would be a hard decision to make. You see, once you leave the County road, that's pretty much a 4WD dead-end road. Lots of it is a Low 4-WD road. One way in, one way out. It's a 2 and a half hour trapline, if things go good.

Honestly, I'm not seeing much fur on the cameras. The last check of camera #2, that was a 6-week check, and I had 1 (one) bobcat picture. As well as I remember, about 3 fox pictures, 1 coyote picture, several coon pictures, and 8 or 10 bear pictures. Very few deer pictures.

From what I've seen, there's not much food on the mountain. The place was timbered hard, 20 years ago, the oak trees are gone. Grapes, where I've been didn't do anything. I've not seen any gum berries.

All together on Camera #2, in the last 10 weeks, I've had 2 bobcat pictures. And very well could have been the same cat. Very slim pickins.
