I thought cats didn't like water?

Not so the case with this puddytat!  8)

We caught this fellow swimming the narrows at Little Bear Lake.
We were fishing the south end when I thought I spotted a yote in the water. Got the boat in a little closer and discovered it was a bobcat.

Not to be a smart ass Tuc but that would be a Lynx I beleive not a Bobcat. Either way awesome cool pics and an awesome place to be to catch it.

I know I have stated it before but Lynx are by far my favorite animal.. Don't know why I just find them so intriguing and mysterious,,and is there a cooler looking critter I don't think so..

Thx for the pics Tuc..

Ya, I was thinking he was a little big for a bobcat, I thought the lynx would be a lighter color.

Very cool!

West of Norgegg, We tracked a cougar that had crossed the N Sask river TWICE, in February no less. He crossed in the nastiest places he could have picked and didn't even drift before he hit the other side.!!  :o
