A friend of mine took this fine bobcat last Saturday. Shot with a .17 remington. I can tell you there was no discernable entrance hole and no exit. The only blood came out of the cat's mouth since his lungs were thrashed. Will definately make a nice pelt.

And here's what happens to the coyotes. Figured I'd lump these huge photos in one.

Nope .17 Remington centerfire (basically a .223 necked to .17). Same caliber, but about at about 4100fps instead of 2500fps. Speed kills ;f

I got decent bobcat with a softpoint .30/.30 a few years ago. I was in a stand deer hunting at the time and the cat walked right by me inside of 25 yards.

I shot him right in his boiler room.... the exit wound was at least 3" in diameter. total internal destruction... And that dang cat ran in big 100 yard semi-circle at the speed of light like he wasn't even hit...then jumped in the air about about 20 feet, did a flip, landed on his back dead as a rock. I thought I missed him clean until I saw found saw him flop on his back finally.

Honest to god true story. Sitting here looking at his pelt right now.

I thought you could not hunt with rifles in NJ?

yup. no rifle-hunting here in the great communist state of New Jersey.

I got the cat a few years ago in Central Florida.

My son-inlaw had a nice bobcat walk up on him while deer hunting this year. He watched it for several minutes through his scope at about 35-40 yards. He let it walk and we all looked at him like he was crazy when he told us. He said "I couldn't shoot him because he knew that there was no season for them." He was sure mad when he found out that there was a season in our county, but not the next county. He had read it wrong from the book. He has taken alot of heat from the rest of us since then. I'm glad that he is an ethical hunter even if he passed up a good shot.

You said it coboconk.

My father-in-law has taken a nice sized bobcat two years in a row now from his deerstand. Both times I sat in mine about 250-300 yards away. Each time I didn't hear his after shot whistle and knew exactly what had happened. This year's cat was just about to step out into the creek where I would have had a shot when he took it. Our fields of fire cross each other just about where he saw it. Had he been snoozing it would have been mine! We've both been tuning up our 10/22's to go out and bag another before their season ends the 29th.
