Default Big bobcat contest. My results.



Ended up with two cats but we couldn’t get foxes!!! My teammates missed several shots on fox. We had enough opportunity to get them. I was 4 for 5 with my longest shot over 200 yards on a grey at 3 am. Awesome time!!! We are newbies at this but love it! Got our money back on the bobcat hides at least!

Just curious, where do you sell your hides? How much do you get per hide on average? Isn’t there a process with CITES that you have to go through to legally sell them?

Real tough. I’ve never gone and it been so slow or the Fox been so skittish. We basically just donated $200 because we got whooped all around

Depends on the buyer! We are here as well, took a cat to one buyer and he said “$25” took it to another buyer and got $60. He said he’d pay $125 for prime cats.

All of our Cats are over 24lbs. It was a great cat night, they all came in like foxes usually do. The foxes were very skittish and call shy.

We called in about 20-25 fox, there around 2-4 they starting to become skittish. Very slow during the day and had our 5 by 11.
We let a cat slip by about 2, gave us a small opportunity then slipped away in the brush.

For sure. Out around the areas we’ve been drilling it wouldn’t be hard at all if you have a big chunk of land to hunt.

That’s **** near 3 an hour. Pretty impressive. I could see it on the fox as you sometimes get several in on one stand but 63 yotes whew.

Strange that the fox count was so low this year and the coyote was so high compared to previous years.

Congrats on the two cats. We were hunting West Texas foxes started moving late. We got our 5th fox a day break. We also missed opportunities. But all in all a great time.

It’s a small world, I used to work with one of Chestin’s good friends, I met him about four years ago at one of the contests. They always win one of the numbers categories because they have access to a ridiculous amount of land.
