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.  You do need a lens at least 200mm in length, either a zoom or telephoto.  This is a classic wildlife chase safari.  There are no guarantees, but a high probability of success in capturing this most elusive of California's feline predators. In November of 2015 we saw 16 bobcats, photographing 12.  In January 2019 we saw 12 bobcats, photographing 10.  So there are big bobcat days out there. 

Reservations    We meet at 7am (which can vary by the month of the year) at the Harris Ranch Intersection Chevron Station - at Highway 198 and Interstate 5.  Unless you live within an hour or two I would advise getting a hotel room the night before. (Best Western, Travelodge, and Motel 6, as well as the more expensive Harris Ranch Motel).  We do split gas, which amounts to $25/per photographer, per day.  On the 2-day safaris I make the reservations for the middle night at a hotel in Hollister where you would pay for your room upon check-in.  We return to Harris Ranch around 4:30-5pm the second day.  To book a safari call me at 559-909-5208 or e-mail me at:
