I sold two 15 lbs. bobcats in February for a total of $100.00

I killed a third bobcat with my bow, but my broadhead tore it up pretty good. I only got $20.00 it...[&:](All were sold whole.)



Here are some pictures...








Here's the one I shot with my bow.....

I think that bow shot cat was worth more than $20. for sure. An arrow makes anice, easily stitched, hole. The other cats were small, but I little surprised that you didn't get more for them too.
I hope I don't hurt anyones feelings, BUT I freeze my coyotes whole all winter long and then haul them to KS. when I go back there to hunt. I averaged nearly $20/ea. for my eastern CO. coyotes this winter. My cousin only averaged about $10/ea. for his KS. coyotes this winter. It's amazing the difference in fur quality and color betweem these CO. coyotes and the KS. coyotes.
My nephew shot a 26# bobcat afew weeks ago in KS., I haven't heard how much he sold it for, but if he didn't get $100 for it, I'll be surprised.

I talked to my nephew on the phone last night and he got $150. for his 26# KS. bobcat. That is unskinned!!
I think someone got the short end of the stick at $20 for any bobcat!

This is a picture of the entry wound.




Do you still think he's worth more than $20.00?

yes I do. An arrow cuts the hide and leaves a much cleaner and easier to sew hole compared to whatan exiting bullet will do. Any fur handler could've easily sewn that hole shut.
That cat was worth well more than $20 with his nicely spotted belly.

I think you could have got more also, try and buy it beck for 20 bucks. I only got one bobcat, and sold it for 150 also, but it was a big one. They are expensive to buy.
