Wow! I'm in love with those lynx shots! How close did you get?
7 to 10 meters quentin... behind a snow bank blind they made just back from a feeding station.. holes were put in the snowbank to shoot/view through... they used a leashed live rabbit as bait/feed... lynx are fussy eaters and their diet consists almost entirely of rabbits.. they also dont like dead food in the winter as their claws and teeth are fragile and might break/chip on frozen meat. He comes around every second day to 2 different stations to feed.
Hopefully they put a stop to it soon as this guy is getting just too comfy with the surroundings. Under normal conditions you are lucky to get within 20 meters of one of these guys.
The pics are actually a bit decieving... he is about the size of a medium size dog and solid muscles. His paws are almost as big as your hands and his shoulders are massive for his size.
