Sweet. Now I just have to find a way to get upstate for a few days next season. I've seen Bobs ~45 mins away outside of Gettysburg, but this area isn't open to cats - unless they go statewide for the season.

NOW THE ONLY PROBLEM IS HOW MANY BOBCAT HOUNDS ARE GOING TO RUIN SETS IN A 3 WEEK PERIOD, IF THATS THE ONLY TIME YOUR ALLOWED TO HARVEST THEM, I THINK THE WOODS ARE GOING TO BE VERY BUSY IN THAT TIME FRAME

speaking of mink I've seen more roadkills last summer than I probably have all my life. Between June and August I saw 7 different mink hit and 3 of them were within 200 yards of each other.

the ones that were bunched together were between a hickory stand with a pond and open pastures. I don't think we had the trapping pressure the last couple years around the house as there was when i was in high school.

true story. now that i have more time i didnt even get to set the best mink area i scouted. i was to busy takin rats out of golf coarse ponds. we only had one last year but word spreads fast and now we have 4. all have 3-6 ponds on each. i think a few more dozen 110s are in order
