Been out for a few days while entertaining an old friend and his son. They live in Waco and the boy is a sophomore at Texas A&M. His dad is one of the first friends I met at A&M and we've been close friends ever since.

Dustin, the boy, had never killed a deer. I put him on a good stand this weekend and he took a bobcat and a spike. He was ecstatic and his dad was, too. We went on a goose hunt Monday and had a decent hunt for dark geese, but the snows wouldn't come down. Lots of fun. Here's Dustin and his kills. :D

Nice pictures and great looking deer. Question, what does one do with a bobcat? Are they edible or is it a mount/trophy type shoot? Good to spend time with old and dear friends and their kids. Many fond and not so fond memories of going to school in Texas many years ago. East Texas State in Commerce. I think it is now part of A&M right? Enjoy old friends, too soon we grow apart.

We took the cat to a local taxidermist to be made into a wall rug trophy.

Yeah, I don't know who was more ectatic about the weekend, the boy or his dad. LOL It was fun and I got some meat off that spike. Larry says he and Dustin are the only ones in the family that will eat game. I can't relate. Got venison chili on for tonight. :D
