Human scent test - Bobcat

This is a well used predator trail so I decided to make a test to see if human scent bothers animals that use the trail. There was a blackberry vine growing across the trail, I raised it just up about 4 inches and then strung it up the tree and wrapped it to a limb. Then rubbed my hands onto the vine just in the middle of the trail.

Checked the cameras today and got several bobcats walking over the vine and never even bothered them. I had to laugh at the coyote picture as it walked by but will save that picture for later.

This is big for a bobcat.
