Thanks for the replies guys. That is pretty much what we had been thinking but others had tried to tell us the cat was a cougar or even a plain old feral cat. Some tried telling us the second one was a fox and a couple people even thought maybe a wolf. Whats really cool is the tree that camera is in is only 52 yards from the house according to the range finder!

No chance that cat is a cougar, a broadside photo like that would show its very distinct tail. In that pic there is no tail. Not to mention everything else about the photo says bobcat. If someone is telling you cougar I'd really question their wildlife knowledge.

2nd sure looks like a coyote. No way its a fox, again question anyone that thinks that. Only reasonable confusion to me would be someone saying a wolf. Coyotes and wolves can look similar enough to justify that confusion. However, in this case that looks like your average coyote.

Where were these pictures taken?

I agree that it could be very possible that this is a bobcat and a coyote. however, after some further observations. I agree that it is highly unprobable that it would be a cougar. just due to the fact that the tail is not very distinct in the picture. but if this picture was in fact taken from one of our more northerly friends that this besides being a bobcat might very well be a canadian lynx. but without out color and a higher resolution image we can be pretty sure all of us will stick to the fact that its just a bobcat and a coyote. or bobcat and small wolf. just due to a previous comment, again low resolution imagery doesnt do any of us any good when actually trying to identify the animals properly.

great shots either way!

but wheres da turdy pointer?

Bobcat and Yote 100%. Both nice size animals. Lynx would appear bigger and the 2 legs that are planted would again be larger and more pronounced.

No joke I could put up 50+ different bobcat pics from the last 3 years on our property, we have them thick.

when you get to the argument bobcat/cougar or wolf/yote I always say if you are questioning than it is a yote or bobcat. Have never gotten a cougar but in comparison to size to the wolf/yote argument a bobcat wont even come close to the size.


Example below- same cam same week, last 3 are wolves. when standing in exact same spot they are not even close in size.

These pictures were taken just south of Brainerd. We have 4.5 acres here that we live on, and put up 2 cameras just to see what passes by. Always surprises me how close to the house wildlife will come.
