Nice cat!

Thanks so much.  I think I've found my "calling".  :-)

Went out looking for a lion this morning.  Nice time in nature but no kitties. 

Cheers,  Tim

Pretty cool! Back when I got my first (and only) Foxpro, very first sit I ever did with it we called in a Bob at about the 20 minute mark. I thought “wow these things are amazing, like shooting fish in a barrel!” To my recollection I don’t think I’ve had another cat to that caller since :chuckle: at least you were able to get yours killed!

My first two kills with my Lucky Duck Revolt seemed very easy.  I'm sure that it isn't always like that.  I'll take it though.  Now I need to see a Cougar!!  :-)

Ive never called in a predator other than an owl with an ecaller.  But same expierence last year with an open reed howler first time i tried to call in a yote with yote vocalizations.  Made one howl, dog came running in a minute later, boom, done.  I thought man, that was easy, i shoulda been doing this years ago!  Nope.  Followed it up with dry set after dry set.  Nothing like beginners luck to give a guy a false sense of confidence.

"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter

Super cool! Awesome cat! We hunted Okanogan for deer this year. Opening morning had a bob walk right through our little ravine we watch (stellar jay chased him up and over the hill) we elected not to shoot as the boy had a .270 and I had my .257 mag figuring too much damage we let it walk hoping to call it in over Christmas. Buddy sitting in deer stand for late archery saw two in same ravine Thursday morning. I bet we never see one but cool to think we could.

Okanogan County is where I grew up and mostly where I hunt.  I know that they are around but usually they are hard to see.  I think that there's just a lot of cats in the woods but they tend to be hidden.  Bringing one to a call is an amazing thing.  Imagine seeing a Cougar walk up to one. 

Cheers!!  Tim

If you want to bring in more bobcats to shoot, just get some chickens at your house.
Bobcats tacos are really good too  :tup:

Bobcat camo is the absolute best.  Even if you see them move, when they stop it is very hard to pick them out of the landscape.
