Name that cat

Dad saw a lynx in this area about five years ago… so don’t rule it out… is this a lynx? a bobcat?

This is the first time we have had a cat on any of the trail cameras… and luckily enough, the deer did not disappear because of it.  Can you please let me know what cat this is?  Thanks!
