I thought this sequence was pretty cool. Interesting that the turkeys walked in the direction of the bobcat after it appears he turned to leave. I think that smokey-colored hen has some age to her as well as I've seen her for a couple years at least.

That is fascinating. Safety in numbers? I can't imagine why a bobcat would be intimidated by them. Is there any chance the bobcat has a hen in its mouth that you just can't see?

Well the contest is just about over. As I said from the beginning I have not entered or voted for any of the pics in the contest. Believe me it was hard as there are so many great pics. Good luck to all of you who have entered. I just want to say that I enjoyed making and posting updates of the build along the way, I hope you all enjoyed them. I again what to thank Bill for contacting me to build the prize knife. It was an honor. Here's are just a few pics.

If I had to put money on it, I'd say the bobcat didn't get one. I don't see anything to indicate it in the pictures. I don't think the bobcat was intimidated by them. I'd say he knew his chances were low if they spotted him. I thought he might act like he walked off and then come at them from the cover. However, the turkeys had a few more pictures in front of the camera around that time frame and then they came back an hour later. If he busted them up at some point, I'd speculate they'd have regrouped elsewhere.

Here is a picture of a grey squirrel for reference, the pictures after this are what I believe to be a flying squirrel. I have never had one of these on camera. Not sure this is allowed per the rules since there are multiple pictures in this post.

Put up a few older cams on a farm I just got under contract. No decent bucks yet but a ton of coyote activity. Caught this neat interaction and decided to string some clips together:
