kinda funny now but I was scared ****less! I didn't know what to do. The wind was perfect so he never smelled me and was looking away at the call. I was able to get the safety off but when i started inching the gun toward him so close is when he caught the movement. I'm just glad he decided to flee and not attack!A DogDoc calls and what shows up - a Cat. Now that is funny.
Sorry you missed but I can't help but laugh at your heart rate tripling in about 3 seconds.
Thanks for sharing.
No, but I did plant 4 trees today. Two pears, dolgo, and a strawberry bush. Also removed large cage around 2 of my 5 year old pears and replaced with smaller cages just to keep the bucks off of them. So I did get a little habitat work in also.Bummer...did you take a chainsaw?
Too bad you weren't toting a scattergun!Must have been a clean miss. I went right to where I shot and there was nothing. I searched for a good hour in all the thick cover and walked the creek 100 yards each way. I know it went to the creek because I would have seen it any other direction. Walked both sides down in the creek looking for blood and found nothing. I think if I would have hit it then I would have at least seen some fur or blood at impact spot and I marked the spot right after the shot. Darn it! I have been wanting to mount a bobcat forever and it's the first one I have ever called in. Still one of the most exciting/scary moments that have ever happened. I was sitting next to a dead cedar tree on the pond dam. He must have come just on the other side of it because when I saw him he was right next to me. Once he saw me and jumped I don't know who was more scared--me or him!
