    I killed a bobcat last year, with a .17hmr, and it was fairly big, or i thought so... it weighed 16 lbs 15 oz. i seen one at the taxidermy that weighed a true 24 lbs... two hours i seen one as i climbed into my stand, (100 feet from where i killed mine last year) and i would CONSERVATIVELY say it weighed better that 30 lbs. I couldnt get my bow or my video cam on it quick enough to capture it... im pretty consistent on my guess weight from live weight, but this was so much bigger than any one ive ever seen before...

    Anyone know how much they can weigh?
    How big anyone ever weighed?

    pix?

    I hope you weren't going to shoot it. They aren't legal until Nov 20.

    Killed a tom cat that weighed 42 lbs but i think it was a cross beteween a house cat because of the off color. But he had pointed ears and a bob tail. I have pictures but they are on a disposable 35 mm camera somewhere.

    I think he had a bow camera he was trying to get turned on.

    I am curious as to the weight of the male at the Salato center. He is getting up there for a bobcat.
