i've only seen a couple bobcats and one crossed the road very close to burr oak lodge enterance...we have seen their tracks while scouting in our wnf hunting area...:biggrin:Super information. My deer camp is in Morgan co. right next to Noble. In the last 8 yrs. I've personally have seen 2 cats while bow hunting. I probably have another 10 on my cameras.
Where are you in Scioto?There was a black bear spotted at Shawnee State golf course either last week of the week before. Several pictures were taken of it as it wondered around, probably looking for water in the extremely hot temperatures.
I know in Scioto Co we have a few black bears, bobcats and tons of yotes. Even seen trail camera pics of some bigger cats.....but never heard of having wild wolves around this area.
Minford area. I have personally seen 1 black bear cub in the Minford area and I have seen 2 trees in the past 15 years that have been clawed by some cat much bigger than a bobcat.Where are you in Scioto?
I'm in between otway and Bluecreek up off mt. Unger.
The old Shawnee park ranger had pictures of bear that went down bracken ridge gettin in garbage cans. There were also bobcat kits in the campgrounds. I know there's bear and bobcats for sure, but the wolves and big cats I'm not too certain about. I only caught a glimpse of the cat I saw and have only heard stories of the wolves. Reckon anythings possible, but I always ask "what color was the cat?" when they say black, I chalk it up to not eh, seriously doubt it.

Interesting question. I'm a bird hunter too but don't know if bobcats would hurt the grouse population or not. If they eat enough nest robbers like *****, possums and skunks they might actually help the grouse. I don't know that to be the case but its something to consider.How do you guy view this? A good thing or a bad thing? Would you shoot one? I for one think it pretty cool. On the other havnd I am a bird hunter and another predator in the woods eating the grouse that are already low in #'s think it's not so "cool"....
Maybe, but I wonder how hard they would be on the birds themselves?Interesting question. I'm a bird hunter too but don't know if bobcats would hurt the grouse population or not.
