Bobcat kills deer

Postby Cathunter207 » Mon Jan 18, 2016 3:57 pm

So the other day I got a tip where a cat was seen.Saw the track and confirmed it was a cat. Went there and put a beaver carcass on a blow down at about 4pm,came and checked it the next evening and found this dead deer. No other tracks around besides the cat and three other deer. The cats been living underneath a old shed across the road from where it killed the deer. I could see the cat tracks sneaking up onto the kill,it must of been bedded down right there where the cat got him. Will they usually return?I dragged the deer to my bait which was only about 30 feet away.Anyone else have any input or size the track? hopefully he returns tonight so I can get these dogs on him!

Strange to me. Looks like where it died, not where you moved it to? Not opened up to chest cavity, must have bumped cat off it. Deer warm? If where killed a cat will cover it even with just snow. Killed in head neck area is normal cat . I would bet on cat being back even if you bumped it off. May take a week or next day.

The biggest bobcat I ever caught had just killed a full grown doe
