    That is a good thing.
    It's a bitch to hear on rattling an having to stand still until you can locate it. Because you know that if you move the bastard will bite you.

    Same and grew up in an area that has plenty. Also, never saw a bobcat in the wild. Have seen 3 off the highway/interstate while driving. This is another reason why I don’t necessarily blow off every Mt. Lion story I here. There’s thing out there, even right under our nose, and we don’t often see them.

    I can not tell direction where any sound comes from . I am deaf in one ear and lots of ringing. If I walked up on a rattler I would probably be bit.

    When these cicadas come out I wonder if you can hear a rattler.

    I've also never encountered a Rattlesnake, of any type, in the wild. Just saw my first snake of the year last week, a 3' long Blacksnake, which was on my driveway.

    Where our land is is knobs and my uncle grew up there. He said he never heard about any rattlers ever being on top of the knobs his whole life till about 3 years ago he was riding horses with my aunt and killed a great big one going back our road. Agree with you on bobcats and foxes too., I’ve only seen one bobcat there and it walked to 5 ft of me on the ground before I spooked it I thought he was gonna jump in my lap. Never seen a fox in person on us either but I’ve gotten pics of foxes and cats every year on cam since we bought it

    I have seen a few foxes. Right now, at the school I work at, we got a green space area behind and there are two foxes that apparently have a den in a clump of trees. We see them daily. I’ve had them walk right under my stand in the woods whimpering like puppies. My dad and brother have both saw bobcats where we hunt and I haven’t and we run multiple trail cameras and don’t have a single one on pic or video.

    I wish I knew how to upload this video it’s awesome. I just had the top half of my climber on a tree foliage was too thick to climb up, and I hear something and here’s this bobcat walking right down the ridge towards me at about 40yds. Be lines right to me. He keeps staring at me but doesn’t know what I am so when he gets about 5ft he stops and wags his tail looking at me and I’m like oh crap he’s gonna attack me thinking I’m a squirrel so I said GET! And it just started at me at 5ft. So I kinda stood up and said get out of here get and that thing took off like I’ve never seen any animal move looked like his feet weren’t even touching the ground. But funny you mention that, there’s a Facebook page for dixie Highway and a lady was on there cuz she has a family of foxes in a little wood lot behind her house. She wanted someone to come out and catch them and relocate em and we all were telling her it’s their home not yours, they don’t need to go anywhere

    Cats, like birds too.
    the fox's used to get the chickens. i aint seen a red fox in a while.
    now, the neighbors dogs, get them... cant win.. still hear the yotes sing at night.
    Gretta, the red mare in the avatar picture, learned she can chase off the dogs, finally; she is limited though, by her fence.
    if it runs, she likes to chase it. #3, she is intimidating. knows how to scare people too. what a sweetheart.

    Had a young Bobcat jump on one of my decoys during turkey season. That was pretty cool.
