Bobcat and Coyote at Ranch, October 9th, 2016

That is a good sized bobcat and a small coyote.  The confrontation took place at my ranch at 0918 on October 9th, 2016, according to the game camera.

This shows the coyote 12 minutes earlier.  I suspect she sensed the bobcat at that time, but it did not show up on the camera.

I keep the water running to attract wildlife.  The water hole is about 10 yards from the pistol range backstop.

Deserts do not support a tremendous biomass, so wildlife is much less common than in many other areas.  I do not have livestock, and have no desire to shoot coyotes or bobcats at the ranch.

Taking photos of wildlife is so much more fun than killing them. You can also call in wildlife with pre-recorded sounds of appropriate wounded prey.
