So last night I'm hunting for hogs sitting in a stand about 140 yds from the feeder. Wasn't seeing anything and then I heard a high pitch scream. I had my NV out scanning when a bobcat walks out of the cedar. so at this point I'm trying to figure out if I want to shoot him but it's hard to judge size with the NV. After a few seconds I decided WTH and shot. He turned and ran into the cedar thicket and I gave him a few minutes before getting out and looking for him. Once I get down to where he was at I find a big pile of blood and a great blood trail. Here is where it gets interesting, I go in this thick cedar and easily find the cat but he isn't dead he is barely hanging on and all I had was my 6.8 SPC and didn't want to shoot him again from that close and destroy the hide so I figured I had 3 options. One, stand there and wait for him to die but didn't want to watch him suffer. Two, grab a stick and bash his head but didn't want to destroy his skull so I can do a euro mount. Three, choke him to death quick easy and no damage to hide or skull. So I decided I'm gonna choke him to death. Now realize this cat is in bad shape he isn't wounded he is dying if it had just been wounded I never would have tried this. I watched the cat for about 10 min before I made this decision and it attempted to get up 3-4 times and just fell over. My first attempt I walk up it just lays there trying to crawl away, I placed my boot on the shoulder and reached down to grab the cats neck as soon as I applied pressure he leached forward and growled I about sheet myself. So at this point I'm trying to figure out whet to do and then I spot a cedar limb on the ground. I grabbed the limb and put it over the cats neck and then stepped on the limb applying pressure this worked great until the branch snapped so I used my boot to finish him off and ended the cats life after about 30 seconds. I have all this on video and will upload later. The cat isn't very big but it's my first, if I knew he was a smaller cat I would have let him walk but it is what it is. Lessons learned are, never track a bobcat without a pistol to finish him off and don't try to choke a bobcat with your hands.









How not to choke a bobcat
Warning there is some cursing

Not sure how I'd do it if you wanted to keep the skull. Probably wpuld have had similar results as you, not sure if I woulda gone for a full nelson on him barehanded.
