Sun Bathing Bob
« on: October 18, 2016, 08:57:45 PM »
Watched this guy for 30 minutes today as he sat on a pile of rocks, He didn't mind me much so I just sat back and watched him live the easy life. Sometimes its fun to just hang out and co exist with wildlife.

Super cool!  :tup: I've yet to see a bob in the wilderness...Cougars, and tracks of Bobcats, but no Bobcats. Thanks for sharing!

Cool pictures.  I just saw one last week while bird hunting.  Unfortunately, my dog was on point and I couldn't get to my camera to get a quick picture!

Very nice. They're definitely one of the strangest acting animals we have. I've watched several over the years and can't figure out half the things they do. Cats way I guess.

I thought this would be about Bob33 in a Speedo.  Glad it wasn't.

Cool thread, I like bobbies and have seen lots of them in the wild.  :tup:

Only one I killed was in my pasture scooping out my goats, that said ones in the wild are safe, unless they come into my goat areas.  :chuckle:

Wow, I have seen exactly one in my life.  I heard another and saw the tracks circling my tent - a night I won't soon forget.  They are very shy animals.

kind of cute little guy, looks like a kitten.
If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.
