Thanks, they are very sneaky bastards down here and we have lots of low brush for them to hide in.

All of the predators are pretty stressed this year and so we are seeing more of them moving at all times of day, much more actually. Most of the coyotes I've killed the last five months or so are down right pathetic and it seems like more of a public service to dispatch them than hunting.

    The bellies on a bobcat are where the $$$ are at, the fur on the belly is what is valuable on them other than over all just plain coolness. It's graded on the clarity, or whiteness of the belly, the definition and quality of the black spots and the width of the belly along with fur density. Get a belly pic on the next one

    Man I didn't have a clue. The last Bobcat hide I sold brought around 325.00 if I remember right and that was around 1987-88 HA!

    Nice shooting! I have only killed two bobcats here in NM. I called them in so I didn't get to shoot them as far as you did!
