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.

      With warmer weather coming hopefully so will the reports.   I've been watching the bay and it seems like things are breaking up out there so I'm anticipating getting out in the next two weeks on the big lake.   Boat is ready. Just need a place to launch. Anybody been to McQuade the last few days?

      I thought Archery is not restricted correct me if I am wrong   Licenses for the Spring Turkey Hunts are awarded in a computerized preference drawing for the A-B time periods. C-F time period licenses can be purchased over the counter in mid-March. Turkey hunters, other than licensed archery hunters and youth are restricted to the WILD TURKEY PERMIT AREA and TIME PERIOD selected at time of purchase

      That wasn't the size of lake I expected to be safe, but still.    500 ft from shore and they got a ladder to him?  Well, I'm glad he made it out safe.  Either way, thanks to the man above looking after.    I'm surprised the media didn't blow this one out of proportion.

      The only reason they allow you to have a gun while archery hunting deer is if you have a ccw. They did this because if they didn't it would impede on your rights to carry.   Thank you for contacting the Minnesota DNR.   You are correct, your friend is not. Even having both licenses, a person can't have both weapons with them at the same time. That person would need to choose which weapon and license to use, can’t do both hunts with both weapons at the same time.   Please feel free to contact us if you have further questions either by email or by calling 888-646-6367 M-F 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and on Saturday 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
