I headed out to this Sunday to get a little hunting in. The plan was to call predators but I really just wanted to get outside and stretch my legs as my new job has me traveling all over the place and keeping me busy. 20 minutes into my first stand I see a large bird swooping in to hit my decoy. I was just about to pop a round off so it wouldn't steal my decoy. That happened 2 years ago on Palomar Mt. But I thought I'd watch and see what happened first. This wasn't a hawk. It was a big owl and he flew right over my decoy to smack the crap out of my foxpro. I guess this shows the difference between a hawk that hunts with his vision and an owl that hunts with his ears. He held it in his talons for a long time trying to figure out what is was. I had to finally get up and walk over there to scare him off it. Collected my gear and made a move. 2nd stand. 1 minute and 30 seconds into Snowshoe Hare HP a big bobcat came charging in and attacked my mojo critter decoy. It had the spinning fur ball in his mouth when I pulled the trigger. Headshot with a 20gr .17WSM. It was DRT. It was a big female. A lot bigger than the last one I got.

Tan the Hide and try it fried !

[FONT=&quot]Maybe you're after their pelts. Maybe you're doing your part to combat an invasive species, like Asian carp populations that are growing at an alarming rate across the country and outcompeting native fish for food and habitat. Or maybe you're simply protecting your property and livestock against destructive varmints or dangerous predators. Whatever your reason, one thing is certain — these critters have to go. So when they do, what happens to the protein?[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Here are five plate-worthy animals that deserve a spot at — rather, on — the dinner table.[/FONT]
[h=3]1. Bobcat[/h][FONT=&quot]If you're an avid predator hunter, you've probably bagged your fair share of bobcats. But have you ever thought about eating them? More hunters choose to skin and tan the hides or use the carcass for bait but, for those who choose to eat bobcat, many claim the meat is delicious and (like the cliché for most things) "tastes like chicken."[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]The meat is surprisingly white and delicate, like pork tenderloin, and maintains a good, crispy sear when grilled. Some simply fry it up in an egg wash with seasoned flour or throw it in a slow cooker.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Here's a recipe for barbecued bobcat from the October 2011 issue of Predator Xtremewhere the author, Keith Sutton, tried out three different recipes using the boneless loins, tenderloins and steaks. This recipe was his and his family's favorite of the bunch.[/FONT]

[FONT=&quot]You've already killed it, so why not try eating it? As Sutton put it, "It would be shameful to waste such delectable game."[/FONT]
[h=4]Grilled Bobcat With Memphis-Style Barbecue Rub (pictured above)[/h]
  • Boneless loins from one bobcat
  • 1/2 cup sweet paprika
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 4 teaspoons salt
  • 4 teaspoons onion powder
  • 4 teaspoons black pepper
  • 4 teaspoons white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
[FONT=&quot]Mix all the seasonings, and sprinkle on all sides of the meat to form a thick coating. Allow to stand 30 minutes at room temperature until the rub appears wet, then season heavily again, pressing the barbecue rub into the meat so it sticks.[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot]Slow-cook on the upper rack of a gas grill, turning frequently, until the meat is done to taste. Serve with your favorite barbecue sauce on the side[/FONT]

They are constantly evading me, I'd say that is pretty evasive wouldn't you ?

Well... Congratulations!...I'm glad somebody had luck for Bobcats on Sunday. I just have roughed-up feet to show for it.

BTW, which manufacturers make lead-free for the WSM?

Yes. Right next to Sun City (or as we like to call it....City of the Near Deads).
You know I was thinking about eating this one. The last one I skinned I was thinking that the meat looked good. Very light in color like pork or even Chicken. I was going to make sloppy joes out of it. I'll let you know what I end up doing and if I have leftovers. I won't be skinning it till Sunday. Gotta do it while the wife is at work. She down with fish, rabbit, birds and deer. But I little squeamish around the bobcats.

Some say it is sick. Others say it is gross. Still other people think that eating Road Kill is the ultimate in recycling, "Waste not, want not", they say.
Whatever your beliefs, you will need good recipes to make your meal its best. That is where DeadFood.com comes in!
Find a recipe for all of your various road kill meats and other "exotic" meats. Is there a recipe missing from the collection? If so, submit your recipe.

A joke from My daughter foer you:
Why did the Bobcat sleep on the road ? IT got tired !

Nothing wrong with road kill i have eaten it before but only venison when I was much younger and lived on a farm in upstate out in the sticks on a very dark back country road with nothing but farm land and woods and plenty of deer herds so quit a few times people smacked into deers crossing the road at night where I lived including my mom who hit or crashed avoiding them 2 or 3 times over the years especially during winter months so the deer meat won't spoil in those temps and the venison is great especially the jerky...
Of course I was young the first time I ate it but they didn't tell me it was roadkill till after I ate it and said it was great, what can I say that a redneck 4u....lol....tra

That’s the spirit! I bet you’ll be surprised at how good it is. Just cook thoroughly.

Because cooking venison thoroughly would be like cooking a good steak well done. You'd ruin it. Predators, pigs, and bears....need to be cooked thoroughly due to the risk of trichinosis.
