Good size cat combined with camera angle and a midget holding it makes it look huge!

I remember reading the story awhile back on that Cat. He had mentioned the weight, can't remember right now, but it was the heaviest I'd ever heard of.

Try 45 lbs. that would be huge. 145 is just well you know

There are no numbers on any of my clocks below 8. Then all of a sudden, 2 days before turkey season they appear. Then right after the season they disappear.
What's up with that

Wow.. I used to deer wait a property that butted up to a scotch pine field.. They put a subdivision in the scotch pines and cleared big sections of them out and made brush piles.. Every night like clock work out of one blind you would see a big bobcat come to the brush piles and hunt for mice and rabbits..

Houndsman took after him that winter and never killed him.. But said with sighting and track size he would go 40 plus.. It was pretty cool just to see him on such a regular basis.

A buddy and his brother found a bobcat kitten and raised it to adulthood. Thecat taught itself to relieve it on the toliet. When it matured, they let it go on their farm which had a lot of woods. For years they saw it come by their deer stands, look up and walk off. For several years, they sent the photo of the cat using the John as their Christmas card. I saw the card.

Another man I know raised a kitten as well. A neighbor had a couple of boxers that made the mistake of coming into the kitten's yard, now almost full grown, and attack the cat. The cat rolled on its back and disemboweled the first dog with its rear claws. The dog died quickly. The other dog ran off. Game and Fish was called by the dogs' owner and the man had to release the cat into the wild because he had no permit to keep the wild cat. As it occurred on his property, no charges could be filed as there was a leash law in effect in the county where it happened.
