I caught a picture of this bobcat the other day (first one I have caught on my game cameras during the daytime). Is something wrong with his face or is a leaf maybe dropping in front of his face at the time the picture snapped. He seems to have a long snout. The other ones on camera usually have more of the striping or spots. May have just been the time of day. Sorry for the poor quality.

Bobcat. There is something funny about the pic near his face but looks like standard bobcat to me.

Kinda has a long nose for a bobcat.

What made me think it was a bobcat was that the front leg and hump on his back seemed feline to me, but something about the head and color didn't seem to match up. I have caught several "for sure" bobcats on this camera but at night or evening. Only dogs I have ever seen have been two white ones from about half a mile down the road. I see two coyotes fairly often on a different camera across a creek from this one. Whatever it is, it came out of DCNF.

Looks like it might be foliage in the background that has blended in with it's snout.

This is the best I could do with my basic resources. I'm seeing 100% bobcat. The background foliage along with the clarity make the nose look longer.

Almost looks more cougar-ish than a bob cat.

The more I look at it on the enhanced pictures, the more I think it is a bob cat with a bird in it's mouth and this gives an impression of the longer snout.

^^^^^

Exactly.

It's absolutely, 100%, no doubt about it BOBCAT.

I'm amazed there is even speculation about it.

I could understand....if folks that never spent anytime outdoors or encountered a bobcat were the one's commenting, but this is a hunting forum, surely this critter is no mystery.

Wondering IF it is a bobcat (or something else) is tantamount to wondering if the photo was taken during the day or night. It's obvious.
