    My 9 year old grandson shot a Bobcat on opening day with a Remington 600 in 222 Rem. He got an eight point buck the same morning with the same rifle. One shot killed both of the animals with the 222. Have spent time with at the rifle range with the 222 rifle, for a 9 year old he can shoot the 222 rifle very accurately.

    Well done ! I would happily pop a "Stubby tail" if ever one can by our way. What color was the Cast ???
    The Henry's are fine carbines ! Our first was a 41 Mag. The 45 Colt is done the list just a few more.

    PS I had a Rossi 45 colt .. it also shot great but like others the chamber size was way to big.
    Fired brass came out oval shaped and had a glock like bulge)
    sold it and got the Henry very very glad I did

    Had a bobcat come sneaking in on my deer stand a few weeks back, foggy morning, didn't see him till he was about 25 yards from me. Got over-confident and muffed an easy shot with my old Ruger flattop .44. He was coming straight to me and I'm 18' up, shot hit right between his front paws instead of between his eyes. He went airborne straight up, did a flip/twist in the air and hit the ground in full-flight mode. It was pretty funny even though I hated that I missed him.

    Nice shooting.
    First time I saw the title I was thinking 80 cyds is a lot of dirt to be moving with a bobcat ( comes from being in construction for most of my life)

    I'm jealous. 48 years hunting and working outdoors and I've yet to kill a bobcat. I know lots of people that have, though. I've seen more of them in the city!

    Back in '87 we lived in Jeffersonville Vermont. We had a log home on 10.5 acres of land with State Forest on 3 sides. Early one morning I was enjoying a cup of coffee laced with an adult beverage (Jameson) when I noticed from the corner of my eye some movement.

    It was a bobcat sneaking up on my chicken coop and fenced in yard. We kept them locked up inside at night and I had yet to go outside to allow them access to their fenced in area. It was also covered on top with chicken wire as we had lost some to predators in the past.

    I quickly went and got my Wife and showed her the feline. She loves felines and has always had at least two living with her. We watched as the bobcat tried to gain access to the fenced in area to attack the chickens inside the coop.

    My Wife slowly and quietly opened the window to get a better view. Then she called out in her special highpitched kitty voice "Here Kitty Kitty".

    That bobcat jumped straight up at least 5 feet and turned around 180 degrees whilst doing so. He hit the ground at top speed and leapt away through the snow. When I went outside later I measured his footprints. He had leapt 11 feet initially and then bounded through the snow (only 5") with an average of 9 feet between leaps.

    Needless to say we never saw him again.
