When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    You guys are getting 500 bones for bob kitties? Tanned or green?
    If we could get that much for them, I would be trapping full time for bobcats! Hell, for 500 bucks I would trap Bob's cat!

    If that cat was a tom, and over 42" long from nose to the base of the tail, he'd be pushing $800. That's green, not tanned.

    Not a bad start for opening day.

    It was caught in a foot trap. Dispatched with the Ruger. At about 3 feet. Complete pass through. See the red spot on the cat's chest?

    Are they rare up there? I will see if I can find out what they are bringing here.

    Not especially rare...fur density is what pulls top dollar. See the width of that white belly?

    How do Colorado bobcats compare? I've noticed a lot of BC/ML/CY tracks while hunting elk.....Were trying to reestablish Lynx here.....but don't think they've made it to our area yet.

    Colorado is a live trapping only state. Cage traps only. The hides are worth good money.

    Gotcha. It's still crazy that there is that much difference in price for here to there.

    I agree, but I'm selling, not buying. Buyers dictate the market...

    I saw 4 or 5 about three weeks back from my deer blind. That same day I saw about 10 coyotes.

    Never got a bobkittie before. There are many in western SD.

    fur density is what pulls top dollar.

    I thought coloration and spotting had a lot to do with it also ?

    Congratulations to him.......I did want to see that post about what Ginger looks like
    don't make me have to go out there!

    Yes coloration and spotting are really important, as is size. The belly is what sells the cat. Longer, wider, whiter, and clarity of spots. The genetics of bobcats in the western states are superior to the rest of the country, at least in the fur market.

    The kid informed me that the cat in the first post will only get $425-$450. He said I was being overly optimistic for a female cat.

    Ginger never showed at my bait pile this season. There was a couple youngsters hitting it regularly, after dark.
