Unreal, I never would have thought a bobcat could take down a deer.
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.

Who knows the truth to any emails that are passed all around. Cool pictures no less. Stop in the Fish and Wildlife office in Wenatchee on 97A side. They used to have photo albums of research pictures. They had a huge lynx eating on a deer they hung in a tree up the Northwest Corner of Lake Chelan. Lots of other cool pictures too. Nice guys in the office about 7 years ago when I lived there....

I can't really tell the difference other than from what I remember a lynx is taller and lighter in color. Bobcats are stumpier with more markings like a house cat. I think the ears are different too...I could be wrong....
