Re: Called - 26 lb. Bobcat (thermal video)

And I picked up a 2nd and larger bobcat, a Tom this time, on the same property a few days ago.

I am running and Armasight Zeus 3 thermal scope with a FLIR thermal core (hence 'FLIR' in the display), not to be confused with a FLIR brand scope. I really like the Armasight features over the FLIR features, hence why I mention this.

With that said, just about all of the commercial thermal scopes and digital night vision scope have a video-out feature that allows you to run a line to a digital video recorder. I think I had a loose connection, hence the loss of image during recoil (or my DVR is dying). The DVR is the box mounted forward of the scope on the side of the handguard.

There are a variety of DVRs on the market that range in price from about $50 with no sound (Angel Eye) to $400+ for a Lawmate. I am currently running a $<200 MDVR from Ultimate Night Vision, a Dallas NV and thermal vendor and rental company (http://www.ultimatenightvision.com" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;).
Bobcats are predators and will take sheep, calves, goats & deer.
Right Jim. The mgmt program I am helping with is a wildlife program. So I am acting as the landowner's agent to limit carnivore activity on the property primarily for the purpose of allowing the deer, turkey, and quail populations to have a better opportunity to flourish. The primary targeted species are hogs, coyotes, and bobcats.

The first bobcat I took there (no video) was one that I watched stalk two fawns.

I do hog and predator control as part of a wildlife management plan for a buddy's property.

I actually don't shoot coyotes or bobcats on my place, though that may be a future issue for qualifying for a wildlife exemption.

Called - 26 lb. Bobcat (thermal video)

[video][/video]

This is the first cat I can say that I called with any real success. I have managed to stop one from going away, but not ever really managed to get one closer. There is a lot of calling between segments when I thought the cat was gone (and video not running). Eventually she gave me a clear opportunity to shoot.

Nice cat, good condition. Is being tanned into a nice pelt.
