I did a little predator hunting/trapping this weekend & here is part of the results. I called up & took a big pretty gray fox Friday afternoon after I set out a few traps. Saturday morning I called up this big male coyote. I've never saw one like him with a white tipped tail. Then the icing on the cake came this morning when I was checking my traps & found this big male bobcat waiting for me. :thumb: I also called up 2 more coyotes at one time for my Dad & he missed. One of them was solid black & neither one of us could connect on him while he was running away.

P.S. I don't have a picture of the fox right now, I froze him before I thought to snap a picture.

Congrats ! :thumb: Great hunts for sure ! That's a big ol' bobcat, what do you think it weighed ? I got one couple years ago and got him mounted, turned out pretty good.

Outstanding....what specific call did you use? I've got a big hybrid hanging around, and I've tried calling him but to no avail.??

We didn't weigh him but we estimated around 25 lbs.

I've got one of those Johnny Stewart electronic game calls & we were using the grown cottontail distress tape. Each time I've called something up with it they've came in within 3 minutes of turning it on. That one I shot came in before it was on a full minute.

I heard this weekend that some fella around here is giving $50 per Bobcat hide and 15 per coyote. I may have to invest in one of those calls. I've been wanting to do it for a while. Nice job Delta

The man I talked to said he would pay $20 for fox, anywhere from $15 to $50 for bobcat & he didn't give me a price for coyote other than he said he would give me "something" for them. He also said to not skin them, he wanted them froze whole so that's what I've done with them.

What did you shoot 'em with?
12 guage 3" #4's & #5's. (Just my leftover turkey loads)
