Posting the pics in sequence. Makes me wish I had that particular camera set on burst now.

New feeder setup. Bobcat didnít waste anytime finding an easy meal. Within a couple of hours the deer were right back there, the next day it was like it never happened. Thatís nature for ya.

Going to guess that fawn was sick or orphaned?

Where was the doe?

Neat sequence of pics no doubt

I sort of thought the same thing. Most fawns right now are sticking close to the mom and for one to be wandering at night was odd. Iím going with orphaned or neglected also.

Nubbin bucks will leave their momma and wonder off a good 100-200 yds from their mother. No sign of doe so very well could have already been shot by a hunter. Cool pics. I watched a bobcat attempt to do this a couple years ago in person but he met the end of my 30-06 and the deer stood there looking at the cat laying dead.

Itís amazing to me how deer sometimes react to a predator. I watched a bobcat approach two does and a fawn a couple years ago in one of my food plots. The young doe had a fawn, the older one didnít. The younger doe made a run at the bobcat and he/she hit the brush. The older doe immediately went in after him, ran him back out of the woods and was hot on his heels until he cleared the food plot. Wish I had that on video !

Another time I killed a coyote at the same spot one morning about 15 minutes after daylight. I continued sitting and 30/40 minutes later a doe with twins came through. The little buck walked right up to the bloody dead coyote, sniffed him and walked away. The doe fawn never looked at him, and the doe just walked right past him, glanced at him and began feeding. They all fed across that wheat plot and never looked back. If I had been asked beforehand what their reactions would be I would have guessed that they would blow out as soon as they saw or smelled coyote.

Was thinking the same thing. I don't know if part of the fawns leg is sticking up in that pic or what. Ocelot's have longer tails like that but they have more distinct markings.

I always thought folks used that as an excuse to kill bobcats... Now I know it's real, but bobcats gotta eat too, after all, this is their world we live in.

Thanks for sharing.

Folks have no idea the number of fawns lost to bobs...there was a study done in another state where they killed a bunch of bobs during the fawn crop & 50% had deer contents in their bellies.

I'm assuming that's the mother's eyes in the last pic so she wasn't too far off.
