The real question is...

Is the 300WM a good bobcat caliber?  It seemed like DRock may not have brought enough gun.

Nice looking cat, DRock.

Good for you!  Love the spots on that thing! 

They tan up into gorgeous throw pieces on the back of a couch, etc.

2 rounds from a 300 win mag at under 40yds leaves pretty big exit holes.

Nice!!

Hey D i shot a cat years ago that was a bit messed up to do a rug, so i did a pedestal mount exactly like this pic and saved the rest of the tanned pelt not used for the mount, to place on a small table etc and also had the skull euroed which some day i will mount on a piece of barnwood, for now it just sits on a shelf... :twocents:

To hunt and butcher an animal is to recognize that meat is not some abstract form of protein that springs into existence tightly wrapped in cellophane and styrofoam.

Nice looking colors.
