Bobcat bucket list
« on: November 24, 2015, 03:01:00 PM »
I was able to knock bobcat off my bucket list.  Got this female bobcat with my 57# Bob Lee recurve.  I was in a hanging stand when I spotted her.  She never stopped so I had to make my movements when she moved behind patches of tall grass.  She had a squirrel in her mouth and dinner on the brain.  I hit her on the jog at about 20 yards.  The arrow went through the squirrel first, pretty crazy, beautiful animal.  The first pic is how she was when I walked up to her.

I am looking into a mount, pretty pricey though.  This will probably never happen to me again though. Probably a once in a lifetime type deal.
