11-01-08: Finally got a pic of this cat today, and supposed to get one of it mounted in a couple of days.FourBee said:a1; that is a nice looking cat. I just got through looking at a big beautiful Tom Bobcat that the deer hunters brought out off my place. We weighed him in at 27 pounds. He looked as big as some of the coyotes around here. His feet were the size of a medium sized dog. Excellent cat.
When they drove up and told me what they got, I thought of a small 10 to 15 pounder, but when I saw it I knew that was a trophy . The hunter is going to have him fully mounted. Said that was better than getting a deer, with which I agreed.
Only problem is he shot it with a .270 in the upper left shoulder, and exited out the mid right shoulder. Not to bad an entrance, but the exit hole was about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
My wife is now having second thoughts about going out for her daily walks after seeing that fella.
Well; I don't have any tips, as these men were just deer hunting and these cats came up on them. ???BirdHunter94 said:wow that must be very cool. where are you located that you can hunt them. and i am looking in to a trail cam. any tips or suggestions?
He looks like he's smiling. In fact, he looks a little bit like Tony The Tiger.FourBee said:Finally! [/color]
Here's the 1st Tom that was taken off the ranch in 2007. He's the one lying on the brick wall. Looks a little different what with the lighting, but you can tell he's a BIG Cat.
