Feline Hunting No, not the place for housecats. This is for the "other"cats, including bobcats and mountain lions (the BIG cats).

The following is cut and pasted from the link you mentioned.

"In the Catskills, the average male home range is 14 square miles, while the female average is 12 square miles. Home ranges are smaller in areas of good habitat than in areas of poor habitat."

And I still think that is a bit much. The study your referenced is from the 1970's. Fifty years ago, I am not saying the Bobcats have changed, but I am saying human studies and methods of collecting accurate information have changed and are probably more accurate now. Just sayin'

Sonny, that's true. They opened a bobcat season in early fall in Fulton/Montgomery counties. So their range has extended, one would think population has increased as well. I live in the Adirondacks, Catskills would be a nice ride. However I would have to hunt state land and I'm not familiar with that area at all. Oh it could be done, but I think I would be better going south with you. Lol
