Need to see about getting a rabies vaccination for myself before doing that, though, just to cover my bases. We're having a rabies outbreak here. Hrmmmm.
Bobcat are one of the few predators you can consistently catch in cage traps. They will enter tall, narrow cages, thinking it will protect them from larger predators like coyotes.

Top prices paid for prime cats, with large spotted bellies, have reached $1,000 at fur auctions over the last three years.

Update. Thank you all for the tips! I'm planning a five day trip a little closer to home following the holidays, to test out gear (especially tarp hot tent) and everything else. The weather forecast where I plan on trapping is looking colder by the day, already subzero nights. I've made the following adjustments to my trip plan:
-Will drive myself, instead of getting dropped off. That way I can hike out if I need to.
-Shortened trip from 1 month to 2 weeks.

Good idea. It sounds fun but when the rubber meets the road the suck factor starts and youíll find out how much work is involved. Iím not trying to discourage you. Just want to make sure you know what your getting into

On your 5 day trip document as much as you can and take lots of photos, I, for one, would like to hear all about it including what worked well, and what didn't works so well.
