2-day Bobcat Safaris           Oct 22-23, Nov 12-13 & 21-22, Dec 3-4, Jan 16-17, Feb 12-13    $600  ($480)

In 2012 I encountered 80 bobcats, in 2013 it was 94 bobcats - and in 2014 it was 152, each year getting better than the last.  Come and join me on this unique wildlife adventure.  You do need a lens at least 200mm in length, either a zoom or telephoto, and a tripod.  This is a classic wildlife chase safari.  It seems that on these safaris I see coyotes, wild pigs, wild turkeys, badgers, and numerous raptors and songbirds. There are no guarantees (95% success), but a high probability of success in capturing this most elusive of California's feline wildlife. The 2 Day safaris guarantee to provide multiple opportunities to photograph the bobcats. My high day of bobcat encounters during the Oct 2018-Mar 2019 season was 12, my highest day ever was 16.


We meet at 7am (which can vary by the time of the year) at the Harris Ranch Intersection Chevron - at the intersection of Highway 198 and Interstate 5.  Unless you live within an hour or two I would advise getting a hotel room there the night before, there is a Best Western, Travelodge, and Motel 6, as well as the more expensive Harris Ranch Motel.  We do a split gas, which amounts to $25 per day.  We spend the night in Hollister, returning to Harris Ranch the late afternoon the following day.  We normally leave the vehicle at the hotel you stayed at.
