We have a bob cat that we caught on the Ring Camera a time or two at night.  About 2 months ago we were eating breakfast and it went trotting down the driveway, did not have a camera.  It is wonderful to see God's creatures.

Thanks for sharing the picture and video.

At one point Lynx were claimed to be critical threatened species in Maine and various groups were pushing for restrictions on forestry. In order to do that, there had to be studies done. Once the studies got started, they started finding more and more lynx and also discovered that Lynx like logging cuts as their primary food, snowshoe hares tend to follow and multiply in the cuts and most lynx that were tracked were living in or near the cuts and breeding prolifically since the food supply was good. After few years there were not a lot of traction for restricting logging. I think the folks with the biggest impact are trappers as it is hard to set a bobcat trap that will exclude a lynx.

The people who are opposed to trapping have been using the lynx issue to try and get more restrictions on trapping for some time. They push for restrictions on coyote and fisher trapping in spite of the fact that fisher are known to kill lynx. And it won't matter how much the lynx increase in numbers; the anti- trappers will want them kept on the endangered species list.

Hey pretty cool, never seen a family together, but seen a few lynx over the years. Saw bobcat about 3 weeks ago along the 4-lane in the dead grass looking or a mouse. Haven't seen one in 45 years.

I see lynx often out in Deersdale, full of plantations, thinned ground with spacing saws and clear cuts. One was at the end of the field sunning himself by a snow bank 4 years ago. I took a photo and posted it on the forum back them. Lots of river otters around here to. I see them in the local creeks. They hunt beavers, they can have all they can eat. :D

Very nice, thanks. When they yell, must be looking for the others. 
I'm one to leave ALL the slash in the woods. The deer won't eat all the new growth, like they do when all the slash is chipped.
20 lb, maybe. They look good and healthy.

They've tried pulling the same thing up here with Lynx. Endangered species. The fact of the matter, is that we are on the extreme edge of their territory so their numbers will always be few.

Interestingly, 2 different friends have got pictures of Lynx on logging jobs in the last couple of weeks. They don't seem to be skittish like bobcats at all. In both cases, they were the first Lynx these guys had seen.

 Here's a picture one of them took of a lynx. Right on the landing, they were sitting in the pickup.





 Another one of my buddies always seems to end up on the "wolf jobs". He posts so many pictures and videos of wolves by his machine we all kinda get bored with it😊 Honestly, if he didn't have the videos and just told me how many wolves he sees, I'd think he was a BS'er🤷





 This same guy had another neat experience this winter. He had 2 bull moose hanging around his job. One morning he noticed one of them was missing a paddle, the next day he brought snowshoes and backtracked from where he saw it and found the antler! Pretty cool👍

Saw this video awhile back of two Lynx in a possible territorial dispute . Pretty cool
wild critters. Like Barbender said, not skittish 
Lots of vocalization:

I've watched a few of those lynx vocalization/face off videos. The kids and me like to watch them, we get a good chuckle out of them. Not at all the sound I would expect those cats to make, it sounds like a couple of drunk women trying to sound like angry cats or something😂

My experience to, Lynx aren't all that scared of you.

I think I now know who the Dungarvin Whooper is. That lynx. I was lead to believe it was the ghost of a lumber camp cook. :D :D

Barbender that was not the sound I was expecting to hear. Of course it's no wonder, their vocal cords are probably froze.
