Caught these in the Markworth Forest, just two days ago.

I'm thinking it's a male chasing after a female in heat?

1st video has a collar on cat #2. He(?) looks like a stout cat.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

It is better to be consistently incorrect than inconsistently correct...

Sarcasm: The ability to insult stupid people without them realizing it. 

My level of sarcasm depends on your level of stupidity...

Sarcasm makes smart people laugh and stupid people mad.

It's a state forest about 15-20 minutes NE of Duvall. And I misspelled it - apparently its official name is "Marckworth Forest" (with a 'k').

Is that cam on what use to be the main road?

Always has been lots of cats back there and can only imagine itís blown up with the road being gated on both ends.

Awesome capture.  If you let your brain forget the scale, they look like a couple house-cats playing.

Yeah, about here:

https://www.google.com/maps/@47.787848,-121.8702242,389m/data=!3m1!1e3

Still a surprising amount of traffic - it caught trucks, bikes or hikers nearly every day. (I presume the trucks are official vehicles, since the gates are locked.) The camera was kind of obvious, so I'm surprised that nobody seemed to have noticed it.
