Thankfully it was one of my large model traps. 12x20x42

Otherwise he would have had to duck a long ways. He was mean to my trip rod and wire trigger. The 18# female from last month made me think the traps were bullet proof but this guy proved me wrong

Nah, fur market or soft tan.  He's a rare big cat so I really want to keep him but he'll fetch a decent amount so IDK.

Very nice cat! He will do very well at auction if that is the route you decide to take.

Seriously, are you like 5'2", or is that a world class Bobcat?

I bet you were pumped when you saw him!

Beautiful Bobcat!

I know nothing about trapping or value of a skin.
What does a cat like that go for on the market?

Hard to say based on grading and the strength of the market/bobcats specifically.

$300 plus imho. I've seen smaller cats go for $800 though with that pale spotted wide belly and heavy fur

Trying to not think about it because I've elected for a soft tan with paws attached

Sell that sucker and use the money to buy more traps so you can catch all his offspring. :chuckle:
Seriously nice color. No way that thing goes for $300, worth way more.
Title: Re: 40# bobcat last night
Post by: 3nails on January 03, 2019, 04:41:46 AM
 $300 is an everyday event. That's more than likely a once in a lifetime cat. I vote you keep it.

I've currently got more traps than I can even manage.  :chuckle:

Keeping him

I was going to ask if you were keeping it or not.  Glad to hear.  Thatís a beautiful cat.

That's crazy big for a bobcat! Nice! :tup:
Personally, I would keep it. Worst case, it's still worth a decent amount whether it goes to auction or you find a buyer yourself. I think a jumbo cat would look awesome on the wall with a basic rug mount.
