    A friend and I called this bobcat in yesterday morning on the third stand. We set up on a green field that was in the middle of a thicket. We were using a mouth blown call and had a fox pro jack in the box set up in the field. It only took 15 min to call her in. She hung up in the edge of the thick stuff and was giving the decoy the stare down. I took her in the chest with my 17hmr and
    she jumped about four feet off the ground and fell in her tracks. I love the 17 it does a great job on cats and yotes. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    That one's got some nice spots.
    I've been thinking about getting a rimfire varmint gun since I lost my private land. What bullet do you like in that 17 for predators, or does it matter?
