I am new to trapping and so far not very much luck. I am going to try and get a Bobcat tag this next year in Utah and could use any tips you guys have to give. I am going to start scouting soon but don't even know where to look.

Andy welcome to WAT, always good to have folks come onboard who are interested in the craft. For more responses to any questions you may have you might want to enter them in the Camp Fire and/or Trapline Threads.

Hello Andy,
Where on this big range are you located?
I am in the North Idaho Panhandle.
Bobcats were my main prey this winter. 1st time also. There is much to learn and all you need can be found here. This is a great group.
Good Luck. You could start by reading past posts.

Hey Andy,
My experience is stay in the thickest cover you can find. Trails through the thickest cover too.

I trapped with my father when I was younger and a great way we found is to use a sent post, I also got a few nice cats on dirt hole set using a lot of sticks to fence the sides of the set, be sure he can't look in the hole from any side but the front. Bed the trap about 6" from the hole and place a step stick just in front of your pan so he has no choice but to step in. I used to set along rock out cropping and other natural funnels such as old creek beds that meet. Hope this help you can also hang a few feathers or something that moves in the wind to catch his attention, good luck brother
