I consider this a bowhunting worthy post because bobcats kill lots of fawns and eat lots of turkey eggs. Predator management is a good thing! Proud of my first cat!

Beautiful cat , what are you doing with it?

That's a beautiful cat John! Love how well spotted he is. Congrats. What do you plan on doing with him? A bobcat with a bow is high on my bucket list. I've killed quite a few with a rifle, but haven't had a chance at one when I had a bow in my hands.

The little fellow seemed to be perturbed. I'll never forget my son walking right past one that he had trapped. Evidently the cat had snagged the drag and then backtracked a little. My son found the drag and then started following the chain backwards ( with his eyes ) and was standing about five feet from a pissed off bobcat ! Or the one I found in a tree directly over my head ! I quit using drags after that, because I want to know where the little fellows are before they start chewing on my ankle. Pretty cat !

Congrats. MBs are great traps. I've used 750s for beaver and never had a wring out.

Beautiful cat. We have to release them here. Released a big male a week ago. We tried to get a season on them but failed. I end up releasing several every winter. See a lot in the woods. One checks out my chicken pen every night hoping I left it open and they hang out around bird feeders.

Congratulations. No doubt a worthy post. If you trap more, post'em up! One of the best on-going regular threads on Bowsite is a trapping thread.

Nice cat Drycreek. I don't trap anymore and never got a bobcat when I did. Now i see them a lot more hunting/driving... Still have all my trapping stuff, so maybe someday. The biggest memory trapping was when my buddy called me to help him get a yearly bear out of one of his sets. It was a 49 lber and we know that because we could not get it out. Had to call the wco. I don't know how it didn't jack the stakes out. It was caught by the front toes.. This was back in about 1985.. At least,, get it tanned. Ed

little, but pretty coat.

Looked at your picture again. That cat is very pretty compared to ours up on the border. Ours are dusky looking. A big male will go 40 pounds. The Maine record is over 70 pounds. Saw one take a partridge years ago and one took a big buck on my property. Slashed its throat. It was a blood bath. I caught him, hoping to get a coyote, and released him. He was a big male and not happy to see me. He immediately went back to his deer and sat on it spitting at me. I put out two snow sets this morning and can almost bet that they will be checked out by a cat tonight. Get that cat tanned as that one is gorgeous. Wish we could trap them here and keep one. I would like just one for the wall.

Congrats to you. I also caught my first one this year. This is the first time I've tried trapping. I did it to help my deer and turkey population. Quite a few coons were also taken. Should help the nesting next spring.

A Kansas cat

flyinbrass, I'd mount that cat. You'll look long and hard to find such a beautifully spotted coat. That's a once in a lifer based on my experience. He's beautiful. God Bless men

That is a beautiful cat, congratulations! One of the critters around here I have never been able to catch trapping. About the only time I can trap is during the Christmas vacation from school. If I had really realized how much prime hunting/trapping time teaching and driving a bus would take, I might have tried a little harder to be a veterinarian. ;)
