You will go through a whole bunch of coons before you get a cat in a trap. Call in and shot with a tranquilizer dart may be the best bet if you want to try and rehabilitate a bob. bolt

Tomahawk (sp) makes it as an option on their large trap.

Not sure the brand but a friend had one in the early 90s that the first night we had it set with a rooster for bait, caught a large tom bobcat.

My buddy called me today and asked if I wanted to trap a bobcat living under his house. I said sure, may I use your dog for bait... Seriously.

Here is a video I saw awhile back. It's a young woman the works for TPWD and she live traps bobcats for research.

I met a fur trapper in Wyoming who said he would occasionally catch a live bobcat in one of his traps. He claimed he would have to hold the bobcat down while opening the trap to release it. I told him he was a tougher man than me.

Bobcats are pretty easy to catch in a live trap, just use a large trap and live rats in a small live trap and some bobcat gland lure.
