Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge Bobcat Relaxing

I posted some photos of a healthy looking coyote a couple of days ago that I took at the Sequoyah National Wildlife Refuge: Coyote In The Middle Of The Day

This is a healthy looking Bobcat from the same Refuge.

The bobcat is an adaptable predator that inhabits wooded areas, as well as semidesert, urban edge, forest edges, and swampland environments. It persists in much of its original range, and populations are healthy.

    Kerri, he had me spotted but didn’t seem to care to much.

    Paul, I would guess 50 to 75 steps.

    Holy smokes – what photographs! What a find. Your patience certainly pays off Steve. Do you use a blind in your visits to the refuge like you do in your back yard?

    Barbara, I see a lot of the wildlife by just walking the trails and some of the roads that have been closed to traffic. During the colder months I will hike through the woods and fields but I don’t do this much when the ticks and chiggers start coming out. You can also photograph a lot of wildlife from your vehicle. This Refuge has a 6 mile tour road through the main part of the refuge and I have gotten a lot of photos this way. This is what a closed road looks like at this refuge: http://stevecreek.com/backroads-for-wildlife-photos/

    A Bobcat is the only thing I can think of. Can you email me a photo?
