A hunter from Madison obviously was well hidden, fooling a bobcat that walked within a few feet of him.

Sam Perkins posted the video, that he said he took while walking into his hunting stand. You can see the tip of his rifle at the beginning of the video, but he opted to, of course, "shoot" the beautiful cat with his phone since bobcats are not yet in season.

Notice, at the beginning of the video, that the bobcat looks right in his direction. But obviously the hunter was so well-concealed that the cat felt confident enough to walk boldly into the woods. That is, until it got right beside him. The moment he sees Perkins is obvious, and a little scary as the cat decides what to do. Lucky for this Madison resident that the cat decided to hightail it to safer pastures.
