    Several years ago I was deer hunting. I saw 4 does and a yearling. The first 2 were cool, calm and collected. The last doe was a little skiddish, but the yearling was in harms way. Turns out there was this bobcat that had dinner on his mind. He stopped long enough for me to get a good shot and I could see in his eyes that he knew he had messed up. I've seen lots of bobcats, but never got a decent shot at one. I took him to my taxidermist and he just kept staring at him and picking him up. He weighed him and shook his head in disbelief. He was an honest 42 lbs. His wife actually skinned him out and mounted him for me. I'll probably never get another shot at one, so he is now on display in my son's bedroom. When I got him back from the taxidermist my dogs went crazy, especially my beagle. It took them several days to get over it.

    On another occasion I was driving to my hunting stand and I saw some hair in the road and the road was torn up pretty bad. I got out of my truck and beside the road was some blood. I walked about 10 yds. in the woods and found a deer that had been completely eaten except for its head. It was a bobcat from the tracks that killed it, but to this day I don't know what ate the deer. It was a fresh kill, no buzzards, hardly any flies. I think that the coyotes probably ate what the cat didn't.

    He didn't weight 42 pounds but the one on we have on the wall here is 44" nose to tail. Shot him across a river one late January day. Taxidermist talked me into letting him display him at a show he was going to. Worked out good We got free tickets. Good memories walking up that river bank and back with my Dad and that cat.

    Suppose it wold get me into trouble if I let it be known I used a scoped Mini 14 with reloaded 52 grain Speer HP's?
