Anyone hear about that bobcat attack up in Itasca over the weekend. Got to them right in their tent I guess!

One would think that a bear attack would be more likely and that is why it caught my attention.

Bobcat are small and keep to themselves, so I thought.

Can't be for sure...but I think it was a cat???

bobcats can be aggressive. The DNR took a look at the guy and said it looked like cat scratches. Wouldnt you think the guy would be able to see what it was if it was on his face? Could of had food in tent. Usually turns animals on.

The guy that got scratched is a friend of my wifes. He is a college Biology Professor and does a lot of camping. I doubt he had food in the tent. It sounds like it happened so quick, he didn't really know what happend. Imagine waking up to that!

Bobcat's aren't that big are they? I had a little run in with a Mountain Lion and let me tell you about being scared. Cats are way different than bear or wolves. You just feel like they are stalking you. They move so quiet, its just freaky. They seem like they know what they are doing, rather than a bear that is just following its instincts to find food. I ran into a pack of Timber Wolves up in Grand Rapids about 2 years ago while hunting and that didn’t scary me half as bad as that one mountain lion. Big cats and Snakes scare the crap out me.

What I heard up here was that it was a stray wild housecat.

      It is a bad idea.  It can spread disease and invasive species.   Don't do it.     Besides, the minnows swim away and within a short time are dispersed so the fish wouldn't see them as a big attraction.

      For the summer trip, there are many nice resorts to choose from.   Depends on what you are looking for.   If you want walleye, choose something on the Tower end.  If more Bass, Musky, or Northern then either end of the lake.       There is a fair amount of variation in amenities and price among the various resorts, with many to choose from.

      Would love to get together, but still in recovery from shoulder surgery. I will be attending the Ruffed Grouse Society Birds and Brews gathering and the Pheasants Forever Greet and Meet in Cambridge at the Pizza  Pub and Sidelines respectively in February. RGS on the 2nd at 5:30 and PF on the 20th at 5:30. No cost - just fun.

      As far as I know there are no resorts that rent fish houses on Vermilion. You could try Pike Bay Lodge though. Great place! Cliff

      Ha. Nope. Those are just my numbers. The other guys got 25-35 each per day.    The purpose of posting the info I did is to point out that the sky is not falling. There are still a ton of fish in the lake, just have to find them.
