Anyone else alarmed by the amount of bobcats we are starting to see in Indiana? I get pics almost every time I pull cards now and so does everyone I know running trail cams.

FYI - Back in 2007 I got a pic of a bobcat in Putnam County. I called the IN DNR to report it. When I called in the lady that answered said she would transfer me to the person in charge of the "Bobcat Project". I asked "what is the Bobcat Project"? She said, "oh, I'm sorry, I'm not allowed to say". What??!!

Is it possible that the DNR reintroduced bobcats to cut down on our deer population?

I have already noticed a drastic reduction in turkeys and I'm sure deer are not far behind. There are definitely less than there used to be.

Why the secrecy?

Got this pic earlier this week...

We were getting a few trail pics of them for a while, but nothing for the last 3-4 years. Don't know why, but we do have soooooo many coyotes, and maybe they're displacing them.

really? That surprises me. I am getting them all the time in Montgomery county. I figured they moved up north from Parke/Vigo area.
