...beyond the occasional fleeting glimpse, I have not seen many bobcats out and about in broad daylight. For me this still holds true, e.g. Gale shot this pair at the Sonoran Desert Museum, though I did catch yet another brief glimpse of one vacating a sand wash where Annie was busily trying to uncover the whereabouts of a quail covey which had given us the slip a short time before. However a few days prior Shawn's Brittany, Zoey, treed a big male and then a couple days later sighted another and a day or so after that yet another...All three widely separated by the way. Also talked to a trapper who claimed to have caught over two dozen cats since late fall. At 700+ plus bucks a pop not a bad paying hobby, eh? So I guess the moral of the story is bobcats are indeed alive and well in southern Arizona.
