Default Wildfire II got me my first bobcat pictures!

Years ago I had Fury but sold it to get my Canon 60D. Many times I've wished that I still had it to aide in wildlife photography. This year Cabelas had a great Black Friday deal on the Wildfire II, and my Wife got me one for Christmas.
We got a little snow last night so I thought I'd get out this morning and go to the lake and also try my new caller. Didn't see a single duck at the lake so I went on over the hill to an area that I'd seen coyote and bobcat tracks over the years to give the caller a try. I put the caller out and got to my vantage point to start the caller. Let it play cottontail distress about 30 seconds, muted, and slid the remote into my pocket. Got my camera positioned to look toward my caller and what do I see? A bobcat already on scene looking for the rabbit. Man was that quick! A few lip squeaks brought it out into the open less than 25 yards away.







You might want to try a predator caller. I'm sure I'd have never seen this cat without it.

Nice pics of a bob. What lens do you have on your 60D?
