I hope this works. This is a picture of a Mom Bobcat and her two little ones on our property. My hubby got the picture on his field camera.

Yes, in the southern part. Just out of French Lick in Orange County.

Do you see them often? I've never seen one, although they're around here. They must keep a low profile.

Larry sees them often. He has had them run across the road in front of him. This is the first time he has seen one with young ones. Last winter he was trapping coyotes and caught one. He videoed them releasing it. The coyotes are really causing a lot of damage and there are tons of them.

We have them here, but seldom see them. It is always a treat for me to see one.

There are sightings where I live, Lake County, IL. The local wildlife center has a bobcat named "Boris". I believe he was a rescued kit who is too tame to be set loose.

We could actually use a few coyotes -- after having too many for several years. This summer we were overrun with rabbits and other small 'varmints'.

Cool, three of them!

I see them every so often on my local hikes but only one at a time, never a family.

They are so used to people around here some are raising their litters in backyards.

I came upon one standing on a trail I was hiking. It was about 40 feet away. When it saw me, it sat right in the middle of the trail for about two minutes and then got up and walked off into the brush.

The camera I had with me at the time was brand new and I had only spent about 20 mins with it. I managed to goober up all the settings so my photos of the cat were a little blurry.
