Three Lynx near Big White, BC

This is taken on the trapline Bryan used to run down near Kelowna before coming here.  Rabbits follow a 8 year cycle and the Lynx number increase as that cycle runs its course.  So when there are lots of Rabbits more Lynx are born.  When the Rabbit population dies off the young Lynx have a harder time and die off.   Here we have watched the Rabbit population increase over the 6 years we have been here.  This year there are Rabbits everywhere.  Trappers are taught to take Lynx towards the top of the cycle and leave them alone otherwise.
