Wow,,,

It's very unusual to see one out in the open like that,,,
Nice shot with the camera though.

I'm curious though,,,
Why was he lucky?

they are beautiful critters, specially on the wall!!! Got a fox squirrel at the taxidermist right now I shot last year. Buddy killed a bobcat last year also and the taxidermist wouldnt take it cause the hide was messed up. Shot with a 300 rum at 330 yards. he didnt think he could hit it, but he did. little over kill huh??

Bobcats, coyotes, and hogs are too plentiful in Texas, and I will take a shot at any of them, anytime it's safe.

We must be carefull where I live due to the Loess Hills Bobcats are endangered so we cant just go shooting every one we see. That is a strain only found in the Loess Hills area. It is geographically unique as well.

Hog Hunter, I hope your buddy didn't shoot that bobcat in Ga. with a 300 rum, as that would be illegal.
