Here is a story and pics of a hunt my brother's friend had.
:eek:mg:

Good Morning,

I just wanted to share with you an amazing end to a great 2007 hunting season. Yesterday I was sitting in my stand on a small food plot just off Colly Swamp in Bladen County. I was enjoying a beautiful sunset and hoping that I might get one more opportunity at a doe to take to the butcher for processing. Then I spotted some movement in a corner of the food plot that was partially blocked from my view by some trees. I was able to tell that a mature doe with two button bucks entered the food plot but I did not think that they would move into an open area for a shot before dark. Suddenly all three deer became alarmed and began looking toward the woods where they had entered the field. The doe then blew at whatever was approaching and turned and bounded into the middle of the field followed by the two smaller deer. Well this gave me a clear line of sight at the doe so I put my crosshairs on her. I started to squeeze the trigger but then I began to wonder if it could be a big Buck that was making the deer nervous. Then the three deer all blew and ran a little further across the food plot, stopped again and looked back on full alert. Well I decided that it was most likely not a buck that had them startled so I shot the doe. When I shot, the two button bucks ran away while simultaneously a 20 pound bobcat ran into the field and put the death lock on the neck of the doe I had just shot. Amazed by what I had just seen, I shucked another (also my last) shell into the chamber. I could not believe that the bobcat was still there after the sound of the shot and me reloading but he had locked onto a big meal and did not intend to give it up. I put the cat in the crosshairs and squeezed off my last round, he did not flinch. I thought I had missed him. I sat still for a little while and then I yelled at the cat to see if he was still alive, I got not reaction. I climbed down from my stand and approached the two animals in the field. The Bobcat still had a death grip on the doe and was looking right at me as I approached, with an empty gun. What I saw amazed me. The Bobcat was stone cold dead but he still maintained his grip on the doe. I called everyone at camp to come look and take pictures. When it was time to load the doe in the truck we had to load both the doe and the bobcat because I could not separate them. Attached are some pictures of this amazing event. I hope you all have a safe, successful 2008.

That is one of the coolest hunting stories I believe I've heard. That is amazing. So glad you got to witness this. Would be cool to have a mount made of both of them together......just goes to show them bobcats do take our deer....glad you got him and meat for the freezer too. This will be one you'll not forget for awhile ! Congrats to you on the amazing double and thanks for sharing......

A lady at my church was showing me some game camera pics from her dad's place near Shridan. It showed a bobcat taking down a deer. It had killed three deer they knew of before her uncle shot the bobcat.

WOW! That's amazing. That's what I love about hunting. You never know what you are going to experience when you go to the woods. Every hunt is a treat.

sorry dude, your bro or his buddy may be yanking your chain. a story like that broke about 2 years ago. notice the date on the pics? i remeber seeing it on here. i will try and find it. cool story though. BG12

i could be wrong though. seems like i remember the cat in the other thread being bigger. who knows.......

edit, my computer is a slow P.O.S. , i have my screen resolution dialed way down so pics will load faster. the 2008 looked like 2006. i finally got it clearer. sorry i doubted your story man. just seemed kinda crazy for something like that to happen twice! BG12

For those who didn't notice... This was not my hunt (wish it was though). It was a friend of my brothers. I just thought it was cool and shared with all of you. Also, for those of you who think it's maybe not true, that's fine. You have that right. But for me, I choose to believe it because my brothers friend is a maintenance manager at Land-O-Lakes and he shared his hunting story with all his coworkers and friends. Being in his position I can't see him sharing a false story with his coworkers. Glad to hear most of you enjoyed the story as much as I did.
