    I've never seen a fox on the ground I hunt, but I know they are there. Mostly red fox in this area. Kansas has one of the highest bobcat populations in the country, so while not common to see them, no danger of thinning them out too much. Know of one guy that ran 1/4 mile of traps along a creek, and caught 5 toms in one season. Pretty good numbers there.
    Well, the taxidermist didn't have any body molds like I really wanted, so it's going to be a "sneaking and snarling" mount. Should still look good coming out from behind the furniture. lol

    I've seen no gray fox for the last several years, as the coyotes have spread their domain, and prey on the fox. Gray fox are tons of fun to call, they come in very quick, and if you miss, will stick around, barking at you because you're interupting their dinner!

    Nice trophy and great shooting. I have only seen one while hunting here in NY; it's one animal still on my list to take with a bow.

As we were driving up to my parking place where I hunt, we saw this bobcat walking along the field edge by the road, at about 70 yards. She had never seen on in real life before. We watched it for about a minute, then it dropped down into a dry creek. We went on to our stand, and had been sitting about 45 minutes when he walked back by. I just had enough time ot grab the bow, draw, and let one fly. She told me I had shot right over it's back. Well, we sat until dark, then I went to get my arrow. It was covered in blood. We trailed it for about 50 yards, then decided to wait until the next morning. Didn't really want to find a possibly wounded bobcat in the dark. Next morning, we got back on the trail where we found last blood. Trailed another 15 yards, and blood ran out. I noticed a pile of leaves that looked kinda funny, and he was buried underneath them. Something had covered him up in hopes of a snack later on. Not a tooth mark on him, just the arrow hole. I was glad when it showed no signs of damage. Only thing I can figure out is, it had to be another bobcat that buried him. A coyote would have at least taken a few bites.
    There's a couple of understatements! I think that you interupted the wantabe diner! Was probably watching you when you recovered Bob. Cool story, thanks for sharing.

    Good goin. It's not often you even see one of those critters let alone harvest one. Here in Pa. it would be illegal unless you purchase a Furtaker permit.
