I know exactly how it played out.

Bobcat left of his own accord or the buck made him leave.

Bobcat is no match for a mature buck (or Doe for that matter).

In any case, the buck decided how it was going to play out.

Bobcats kill quite a few fawns every year as well as some of the younger yearlings.

Cool pic. I watched a bobcat stalking some quail close to a feeder last season. There were 2 does at the feeder. One of the does saw the bobcat and chased it back the way it came from. She then returned to the feeder and continued eating.

There was not another picture of either one for two more hours till the buck was in the next pic. Strange thing about this pic is that here deer will run at the sight of a coyote, hog, bobcat or dog which made me keep this pic. They do not stare at each other but usually the deer just run. The only difference is sometimes with a bobcat they get vocal about seeing one and they start blowing/stomping as they leave. Many times a doe will blow/stomp after the cat as it causally moves off to make sure it is leaving the area. I think the issue here is the neighbors dogs that are around here year round chase any game animal or predator they see. Those dogs run freely across the country side from time to time. Just with coyotes, hogs or dogs they just run off quickly and don't return. I have had several bow hunts this season where the deer would look up in one direction and run off the way they came in. Never would see what they saw that caused them to run. That blind is close to a water trough that gets lots of predator activity, especially bobcats. I can usually hear the dogs barking when they are around chasing things. Most of the time the deer do not react to the barking just keep feeding though but will run if the dogs appear. Just strange to see both of them inside the feed pen when I have seen a bobcat show up. The deer will rapidly leave or react differently than to just stand/stare at each other.

Saw a Bobcat jump on the back of a young Spike years ago. The Spike shook him off and they had a stare down, then the Bobcat walked off.

Is that in an AR County? Because that buck don't look legal (just in case the Bobcat tried to take him).

Bobcats are notorious poachers. Almost no regard for the law.
