I would think about a caller a light and a good rifle, you can have some fun with it. Be sure and check predator laws. They are sneaky critters I bet you have more than three. --09--0

Caller and a rifle or shotgun depending on the land. Make sure to call at least 45 mins cats respond very slow most of the time. You could make a plain old dirt hole set with a #3 trap using some fish for bait and some good gland lure.

yessir the number three trap will work,  also place a feather past the trap or hang it about it, cats are curious varmits and this might be all you need to pinch his wrist

make sure the feather can't be seen from the air or you will catch a hawk or owl the feather does work.

Good Luck.  We have had one picture of one but I'm sure there are plenty more.  Where I'm at you can't kill them.  only 250 bobcats are allowed to be harvested every year in Iowa and only in certain counties.

hunting licence: $190

getting to spend time with family and hunting buddies: priceless

Looks to me like you need to be there at 4:42 a.m. with a night-vision scope!
