Bobcat's
« on: February 22, 2006, 07:47:36 AM »
Lets me say that seeing a Bobcat in VT is like Mad River seeing the end to the minivan pokes.  ;D

All right to the point. I have been hunting since I was 12 yrs old, and up until Thanksgiving Day 2005 I have never seen a Bobcat in the wild before. Then this morning on my way into work I saw another one running along side Rte 7, inside city limits. This time I got a real close look at him or her, and I must say they are one pretty cat. I'm wondering if this is a sign that they are making a comeback into VT, or they have found it easier to live off house cats, and ankle bitters.

Nice jab you sick little monkey. :twisted:  Nothing like a minivan reference to get the blood flowing in the morning. ;D

I hear the bobcat population is growing by leaps and bounds in the Northeastern part of the country, along with the coyote population.  I myself haven't seen one in the wilds yet, but I have seen tracks on a few occasions.  Congratulations on your sighting.  Now, you will need to get into trapping, score one of the little buggers, and get Lady_T to mount it.
I have long know that it is part of God's plan for me to spend a little time with each of the most stupid people on earth.

I see you're playing stupid again...  looks like you're winning too.

You forgot to add that I could bring along on a P.E.T.A. hunt for the Beer Battered kitty.  :twisted:

The population is growing in MN too.  Bobcat, lynx, hybrids, and cougars.  It's really neat to see them.  I've seen a few of each.  I have a hard time telling a lynx and a bobcat apart when I'm driving.  They make a eerie cry out when they find food.  Heard it once at night at a friends hunting shack.  We shined the field to see what the hell was out there and it was a bobcat on top of a gut shot deer.  We have a picture at the hunting shack of a courage outside of it at night.  The thing is sooo big it's belly is almost touching the ground.  Next time I get out there I'll have to pick it up and show you guys.

....There's a bunch of bobcats on the deer lease a friend and I have here in Greene county Georgia. WE see ALOT of sign,more than anywhere i've ever hunted,but they move mostly at night and seeing one in the daylight is rare. My hunting buddy shot one last year during a deer hunt. Hit the poor critter with a 7X57 Mauser. Salvaged a front half and back half with the middle pretty much vaporized..CCI loads a 22RF round called the SGB (small game bullet) that is a 40gr bullet with a small meplat at 1280fps. It's a deadly round,with excellent balance between energy delivery,and penetration. It's not necessary for squirrel but is great for coon,cat,rabbit,and fox.

Well, i can't ever remember anyone talking about a poor bobcat population here...

We are allowed 20 per season, and most avid hunters/trappers fill their limit yearly. So far i have issued CITIES tags for over 200 cats this season.

Wish we had lynx though...those are some cute lynx babies in the pic above!

Sometimes i aim to please, but mostly i just shoot to kill.

when I was in middle school, we had some people come into our school whith Linx's (is that plural??) and talked about how they wanted to bring the Linx back to the Adirondack park in upstate NY... so we sold candy bars and stuff to buy a couple a linx to be relesed in the park...I dont remember exactly how many we adopted, but the linx became our middle school mascott...it was cool then,but  now that were talking about it, I'm wondering how the population is doing, cause there isnt a season yet, I sure would like to have one taxi'd... and show my old teachers...LOL...
