gil,

Please don't apologize for hijacking threads. The pics are worth it.

LOL....

Gil- Not to continue the hijack, but the reason I asked is that cat has western ears. Of the six or eight I have killed, the two from western states have ears like that. When you get your WO can back, compare the ears. The only black one I ever killed didn't have any ears at all. (You may have to think about that one for a while.)

Now on with the dead fish discussion.

Incidentally, did anyone watch Southern Woods and Waters last night? They actually had a couple TWRA biologists on talking about a brand new study just completed on delayed mortality for bass caught in tournaments.

Basically the biologists suggested that once the water gets warm in the summer, you might as well take them to a fillet table instead of releasing them. Otherwise, they said, you're just wasting fish.

Interesting, no?

Counselor - It would be a solid argument if you bobcat watchers had to buy a license like we hunters do. \:D Boy, talk about the potential for completely hijacking a thread!

Reminds me of an old joke.
Bird watcher - I love to watch birds.
Redneck hunter - Watch 'em what?

No, I like bobcat threads better.

Here's the cat after I killed it. I don't know what bobcat ears are supposed to look like, but I promise you my taxidermist doesn't either. \:D
It wouldn't surprise me at all if my taxidermist gave me one he got out of a pawn shop out west anyway.

Yes, interesting. As a fish hugger, I think we shouldn't be able to use hooks anymore. We should just have our flies and plugs hookless like the pros pre-fishing the tournaments. That way, none would ever get hurt, only slightly inconvenienced. \:D

Think I'll go talk to my plants for a while so they are happy. \:D

Forgive my ignorance because I don't predator hunt. Do you have to buy some license to shoot bobcats other than the Type 01 that I buy to fish every year?

No problem on your ignorance. \:D

True dat. Anyone who buys a regular 001 hunting and fishing license can hunt armadillo, skunk, bullfrog, coon, possum, nutria, otter, bobcat, fox, yote and tons more fun stuff.

But... you can jest sit around and watch all dem possums n frogs n such fo free. So git after dat cat viewing if'n ya wanna. No charge. ;\)
