      Where To Find Lynx

      My back yard. The wife came and got me out of bed yesterday morning. "Something is squealing in the back yard. Go see what it is." She was out walking the dogs when something went to squealing, she first thought it was me, blowing on one of my varmit calls. Her first thought was I was trying to mess with her, since I do that a lot. Then she realised I was upstairs in bed. That was when she got scared.

      I went out with her and hit it with my red light. There was a Lynx, eating a snowshoe. The wife was totally fascinated.

          If you've scouted your areas you should know if there's lynx there or not

            If the rabbits are thick enough, I suspect there could be lynx around but you rarely see their tracks. They are running the rabbit trails. Seems like you would see their tracks sooner or later.
            Lynx can be anywhere, and not always where there are rabbits. As lynx pops increase, they will expand their range and will be found in areas that may not have rabbits. Also, when the rabbit pop crashes, hunger drives them to roam and they show up in places they may not have been before.
            You pretty much need snow and have to look for tracks to know for sure there are lynx around. Or just make sets for them and see if you get any.

              Get tracking book

              Grab a tracking book, if your going to trap (or hunt for that matter) learning how to track animals is immensely helpful. Bring the book out with you, follow some bunny tracks, more than likely you'll find preditor tracks, if your lucky, they'll be that lynx you are looking for.

              Lynx tracks are often do not shoe the foot track crisp, because the fur on its foot. They often walk on the top of the snow and sink less than 8" in snow. They should be wide as they are long, and placement delibrate.

              I often find lynx and fox tracks neer the hare tracks. Good Luck

                found some tracks in the area I trap, unforutately idiots seem to let their dogs run around the valley freely so I'm not risking a lynx set
                I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

                  Should be plenty in the foothills and valleys going back and forth. I've yet to go out and try to set a couple traps due to the -30*F weather, but it is warming up a bit now.
