Bobcat Tracks in Snow
By Toby Trigger
Easily recognizable by the round appearance with no claw marks and often in a straight line, bobcat tracks are like mountain lion tracks but much smaller. Found often in dense evergreen cover, bobcats hunt or scavenge fresh kills and will return numerous times to a food source. These tracks were found on Friday in the Clark fork. The bobcat walked into a thick evergreen canyon and sat in the snow. Following tracks like this one can teach the observer a lot about bobcats behavior. Whether you are a trapper or some other type of nature lover, bobcats are interesting animals and the insight gained can be useful.
