This is my last one for the day; I’ve been heavily focused on my story riddle and am coming up on the revision process so I’ve crafted another simple Riley for the community to give a glimpse of what is to come.

Sneak in the prefix, while hunting for boar; beware of bobcats, their swift silent roar.

Ask for the infix, obviously straight; oh, no that’s a lie, oh well, too late.

Indeed yes the suffix, similar to here; maybe that was the lie, in that is my fear.

Lift your spirits, keep your head high; you’ll find the answer, as always with time.

My guess is

Boat

Sneak in the prefix, while hunting for boar; beware of bobcats, their swift silent roar.

Boar with silent "oar" from "roar" leaves B. Also, there is B alliteration used with "beware the bobcat"

Ask for the infix, obviously straight; oh, no that’s a lie, oh well, too late.

The letter is not straight, and again, the repetition of "oh" and the letter o indicates the infix is the round letter O

Indeed yes the suffix, similar to here; maybe that was the lie, in that is my fear.

The key here is the word "that" and the phrase "in that". Within "that is" AT, the suffix

And the acrostic

spells sail which leaves you with sail boat

I'm not sure about the future and time aspect of it, though.
