Well, crazy things do happen. I have been trying to get a Bobcat for years by calling and missed the only chance I have had. Decided to try live trapping so that I could get one and if it was little let it go.
I was deer hunting the other night and a very large doe came flying out of the thicket. Thinking that a buck might come behind I was amazed when a cat came charging out right behind the doe. The doe was running down the field with the cat paralleling her. When he turned to intercept her he provided a partial broadside shot which I took at about 70 or 80 yards. Really blew my mind after all the effort I have been puting into trapping one.
I did shoot the cat with a 30-06, same rifle I took a mtn lion with. Fortunatly the bullet never expanded and just drilled through like a steel rod. Cat must be very fragile because I broke the off side shoulder and the bullet never expanded. I hope the picture is visible through the below link.
I will contnue to try to trap one and really appreaciate all the helpful information.https://u.cubeupload.com/Robsum9/Resized.jpg
