DISCLAIMER: This has NOTHING to do with sunfish. Sue me! banana

I was out trying to fill a doe tag this morning and was still hunting through some very heavy brush at first light. Saw a critter slipping through the brush in front of me. Only got a quick glance and thought it was a big coyote. It went behind a screen of brush and moved through a very small shooting lane and I took the shot. When I walked up I was surprised to see that it was a really big bobcat.

I didn't have my phone on me to get a pic in the round but took some pics after I got back to the truck;

The skin, laid flat without being stretched, went just shy of 46 inches nose to tail. I have heard that bobcat is very good to eat so I took the hams and the backstraps to give it a try. Back in my misbegotten cowboy youth in CO I used to trap bobcat, fox and coyotes for spending money and never kept a skin. This one is going to get tanned as a flat skin.

Cheers Y'All

Wow congrats! I'm not brave enough to eat bobcat, but I would like to know what it's like once you have eaten some.

I won't sue you, just thank you for sharing your hunting trip clap
Have Merry Christmas 🎅 🎄

I have seen several Bob Cat pelts and they turned out pretty good. Would love to see a picture of the finish product. Neat post.
