Kevin Walter of Manassas, Virginia was turkey hunting when he noticed a bobcat in the distance. He took out his phone to record the rarely seen animal in the amazing video below.

The camouflaged hunter said he then decided to make the sound of a distressed squirrel, and the bobcat immediately came closer. The bobcat may have thought the reflective lens and flash unit of his camera phone looked like the eye of a small prey, because the animal began to stalk him.

Walter must have believed the video opportunity was too good to pass up, because he just kept recording.

Suddenly the bobcat pounced! The hunter swatted the animal away with his arm without getting injured, and the very confused bobcat ran away, apparently not willing to fight him.
