Returned to a much colder and snow filled Maine for another bobcat hunt... Arrived Mon. afternoon and it snowed from that evening through to early Wed. morning, and on and off there after, until I left Friday evening... Another hunter shot a coyote and fox but I did not see anything move until the last few hours of the last day... Used my Freedom Arms .41 mag and a hot 210 XTP handload that gave an instant kill on the cat..
The bait was 61 yards away...... Top picture is from blind to bait at edge of wood line... Third picture down is view from another blind....
