    Really need a pic with a tail for a positive id. That said, I see spots on it's legs, cougars don't have spots so what evidence I see says bobcat. I can see an argument for a cougar but without a tail and with visible spots...it'd be a hard argument to win.

    What's the dispute? Definitely not a cougar/mountain lion. So that leaves Lynx but without seeing the tail you will never know. So, Bobcat. FB_IMG_1518541855161.jpg

    Oh, I've seen him... His name is Bob, pretty cuddly little fella, try and give him a pet if you run across him on your way to your stand.

    Bobcat....here's a little clue when you see these kinds of photos. Look at the backs of the ears. Bobcats have white patches, mountain lions don't.
