That kittie seems a little bit bigger than a bobcat (has a longer tail too)...

Edited with a larger image. To me, that tail looks pretty long for a bobcat. I think the "spots" you are seeing is just the grain-like effect of the night shot? But if you're right, that's one LARGE bobcat...

Tough call with that pic... I would have originally said bobcat, however, that tail is way too long for a bobcat... but again, cannot see it well enough either. So ?!?!?!?!?!Frank

True, it's not a great picture but let's make this easy: Has anyone seen a bobcat with a tail that long???

I guess it could be a lion. But the more I look at that picture it could be a Chupacabra. :smiley-innocent-halo-yellow:

I resampled the image and converted it to greyscale. I also removed some of the chromatic aberration (noise) from the low light. Anyone change their mind as to what it might be? Still might be a bit iffy to be exact.http://www.treeofkno...s/BobOrLion.jpg

That's pretty big for a bobcat. I thought it was a bob at first too but that tail and those legs say cougar. It's a young one but deffinitely bigger than a bobcat. Is there any rocky areas on your property??

There are a few rock patches near the top of the hill that is directly on the north side of my place, below the rocks and above the pictured fenceline is a VERY thick brushy area (I've made a few unsuccessful attempts to hike through it), and 50 yards over the east side fence of my place is a small pond. There are NO houses within 1/2 mile back there. Also, there have been many cougar sightings within a 30 mile radius of where I live (including several that were killed by cars while crossing the road). But then we had a bobcat hanging around our house last spring too...

Lion .has the long tail.
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.
