Hope this post is okay here. Didn't see anything with trapping in it. Was wondering if any of y'all trap bobcat and what scents and lures you use. Looking to start this winter. Live in PA.

couple of different methods, find their tacks first(to see if they are traveling the same route) and set a couple of different type

The few I have caught while trapping coyotes have been on the sweeter smelling scented lure baits. No expert by any means on trapping them.

I've had best luck with a bobcat gland lure and either feathers or rabbit hair around the set.

Catnip and a feather lure worked for me in a live trap. Caught it after only two days.

Feathers, al pie pan, cotton balls, all work hung with a string off a branch, then set a mound type trap set. Use brush and sticks/rocks to force a one way entry. Sets like this work great on trails and on field edges as well. I usually used a coat hanger from the branch down, then a piece of string about 4" long so the eye candy can flutter without getting hung up in the tree.

Go easy on the scents, cats have poor sense of smell compared to other vermin, like skunks and coons, but there vision and curiosity will bring them to the "flash". That's one reason I never worried as much about trap scent lke you do for a yote.

I have also caught a few with a banty (sp) rooster in a live cage, with leg hold traps set along the front (block all sides to force one way entry). I had a 4' wide love cage and would put at least 3 traps in the ground along the front. Can be a pita keeping food and water for the rooster though, but it will work.

What is he logic behind no feathers? Trapping laws keep getting stupider by the minute.
