This question has been debated for some time now, so I went back through all my bobcat photos just for the last 5 years looking for evidence. I was amazed at the number of bobcat pictures taken during this time, and not one picture showed a problem of a cat bothered by the camera, the flash or my scent around the area. I have photos that show up to 6 pictures in a series of the same bobcat, some of the cats walking or sneaking up on the camera after the first photo was taken and many where the bobcat ignored the camera and kept walking.
This picture is a good example showing a bobcat never changing its trail, even when I tried my best to get it to walk closer to the camera. I can set my cameras up on the same trails or logs year after year and get bobcat photos.
The bobcat in the photo always walked in the sand behind the alder tree, it was a good location because the tracks showed up well in the soft sand but sometimes the tree ruined a good picture. So I layed limbs across the trail so it would use the main deer trail between the tree and the camera, much to my suprise it never changed and continued to walk the same path. I finally moved the camera down the trail farther to a better location, but still on its tracks.
