    But a dead Bobcat is a good Bobcat.

    Very nice , a year or so ago I was in an area closed to cat hunting for some study or some such and saw one about that size while in my tree stand; watched it for about 100 yards and was amazed it never made a sound in heavy foliage with a heavy frost!
    Very pretty lever gun as well

    Yes bobcats are deer killers maybe more so than coyotes. This is the second in a week
    Believe this is why my deer numbers are off as well

    I used to see one or two Bobcats every year during the conduct of deer hunting, haven't for the past few years. Out here, they look to be a darker gray and the spots aren't nearly as distinct as yours. That's a good trophy, they are much more wary than deer.

    Condition of the fur. White flesh side usual when it is prime, able to see color of roots of hair not yet prime.

    Prime equals MONEY

    Nice looking cat!!! Congrats

    As winter gets near, animals fur begins to grow thicker and becomes " prime" fur.

    Very nice trophy. Good shooting too. 80 yards is a pretty good distance away for a bobcat.

    So how is the chamber on the Henry 45. Is it oversized like most of the Rossiís? I️ really want to get a 45 LA that I️ can pair with my Blackhawk 45. But I️ donít want to have to keep the brass separate like I️ have heard you have to do with the Rossi 45s. I️ mean I️ could but I️ would rather not. I️ have been looking at a Marlington 1894 45 Cowboy with the 20Ē Octagon barrel and it just feels right but I️ would not be comfortable with a Remington made Marlin. Seems they are over the hump then you hear more horror stories. I️ really like the look of that Big Boy steel carbine.

    Don't know about the Rossi's. but my Henry loves a .454 bullet. Brass works in the blackhawk just not the bullet ...yet. Cylinder throats are to tight, that is soon to be fixed.. You won't be disappointed in the Henry and that is coming from a Marlin lover.

    I normally get a cat every trip to AZ...and jinxed myself last January. I called in and harvested 10 yotes and saw two bobcats...out of shotgun range. I switched to 12 gauge BB shot for calling years ago. I dropped a yote at 106 yards with discontinued Remington HD BB shot on the last call of my last day there. The last shell I had had of that stuff. Brought a tear to my eye. When I got back I bought a case of federal lead classic BB 1 7/8oz off a forum that the poster didn't know was discontinued. Bobcat normally crawl up into my lap when calling but not this last time...they must have had full bellies. I'll take cat over a deer all day long. I saw over 60 whitetails in the last week on my property and never pulled the trigger. I'm getting spoiled by the big racks. I shoot a 20" plus spread every year till this week. Well, I have the next ten days for muzzle loader season to see if I can get it done.

    I am going to have to go handle one of those BB Steel Carbines then. I just looked and I can get one for about $60 less than the Marlin 1894 CB. God my wife is going to kill me if I put that on layaway right before Christmas. But I really have no choice, right?
