Default First cat with a bow

Just shot my first cat with a bow! My deer run off and this guy trotted across about 5 min later at 3 yards!

Nice! Iíve passed up quite a few bobcats in bow range. Maybe one day Iíll feel the urge to shoot another one but usually I just grab my phone or camera and take pics.

Awesome. My dad and I both shot one a few years ago and got them mounted.

Did you have to hit him on the "run" or did he stop and give you a shot?

He was at a trot. I saw him coming in at about 18 yards and drew when there was a tree between him and me he cruised right next to that tree and as soon as he stepped out I let her fly. All happened in maybe 20-30 seconds

That's kinda how mine was. I was in a box blind on the ground and road runner ran by and it looked funny like something spooked out. I grabbed my bow and got ready to draw back. Then I saw him coming so I drew back and let it fly as soon as he cleared my shooting lane. All happened in a few seconds.

My dad's was opposite though. He said it came sneaking in and crouched down right in his shooting lane so he he took his time.
