Missouri Hunter Has Close Encounter with a Bobcat

This bobcat gets a little too close for this hunter’s comfort.

Justin Sullivan was deer hunting in the St. Francois Mountains in southeast Missouri when he encountered an unexpected visitor. He was just minding his own business when a bobcat started making its way closer and closer to his ground blind.

This isn’t something you see very often, but it’s probably pretty eerie when you’re in the woods by yourself.

After watching the way that deer handled the situation, it didn’t seem like there was much to worry about anyways. But how close would you let it get to you before doing something?

The Missouri Department of Conservation says a bobcat attack is unlikely, but it’s definitely best to keep your distance. I think it’s safe to say this would’ve been a little too close for me.
