On our first stand of the morning my buddy JP7mag shot a coyote I didn't see.

It was a good sized female.

Quite a few stands later a bobcat got to within about 15 yards of my X-Wave.

We had some clouds blow in and the wind or breeze was swirling real bad so it made the coyote calling difficult.

Many stands later I saw a coyote stop about 100 yards away. I switched sounds to Vole Squeaks at volume 25 and the coyote charged right up to my caller so this coyote got put down with my shotgun.

On our last stand of the day a nice bobcat came in towards the X-Wave from our left.

The bobcat got in that green bush and we lost sight of it for quite a few minutes.

The bobcat headed back the way it came in but then turned and went up hill towards me and crossed under the fence again on the uphill side of my X-Wave.

When the bocat crossed right in front of me it was only about 12 ft away from me.

The above bobcat walked right over my path to and from my X-Wave and then got straight down wind of the X-Wave and it never did react like it smelled anything.

The coyote calling was a little slow but having those two bobcats show up made our day.

You do an amazing job of getting them in close AND taking pictures. Is there a season on Bobcats out there?

Great photos Bob once again! A couple of real pretty cats there! Love all the rosettes on that first bobcat. A great day of calling for you! Thank you for taking us along as always Bob!

I do wear a hat with a camo face mask on it. Then I hold my black camera up in front of the camo face mask. LOL

Well, if they don't let you shoot them one way at least you get to the other. What a thrill!
