Watch as Tim Yost gets an opportunity at his first ever bobcat while predator hunting with us in Arizona!
Check out this bobcat we called in during the late morning while on a guided predator hunt:
It’s amazing how focused this bobcat was on hunting our decoy even after the sound to the predator call was turned off. The first shot didn’t bother him one bit, in fact he just kept hunting! The hunter had accidentally knocked or spun his windage turret without knowing. Needless to say, we were very lucky to get multiple chances at this bobcat & Percy made one of them count.
Bobcats are unreal stalking predators, but unlike coyotes, bobcats typically do not rely on their sense of smell. Often they approach a distress call based on what they hear & then what they see. Once they lock on to a moving decoy, they typically come in a straight line toward it, never even testing the wind.

Bobcat hunting is one of the most rewarding & challenging predator hunts you can take on. Many novice predator hunters will go decades & perhaps an entire hunting career without ever calling in a bobcat. It’s a huge accomplishment to take a bobcat that has come to the call, especially during the daylight.
Most Bobcat Hunting Outfitters use hounds or hunt them at night. These 2 bobcat hunting tactics offer challenges in themselves, but nothing beats seeing a big old tom bobcat approach the call during the middle of the day. Calling a bobcat in during daylight hours is simply a surreal feeling & huge hunting accomplishment.
Check-out some of the bobcats we have called in during the day in this short video clip:
The perception has been established that calling bobcats in during the middle of the day is almost impossible, but nothing could be further from the truth, if we are talking about bobcat hunting. We strive to put the hunters who book a bobcat guided hunt with us, in position to witness a bobcat approaching the call during the middle of the day.
