Default Dead kitty...

Folks,

John and I have had a dry run of late calling together, a combination of bad luck and bad spots I think....
Tonight we changed that as we got this female at about 40 feet....
I was calling with the Psycho Tweety and manning the light. We had a fox, I think it was a red, coming hard but I think he saw the truck and swerved into the thick stuff. He then proceeded to scream at us for a few minutes....
I was trying to coax him back in when I caught a face looking at me about 40 feet away in some thick stuff. AllI saw was a whitish face and some ears...
First thought it was a rabbit as she was in thick brush and then thought it was a plain ole house cat....
John was convinced she was a rabbit but he didn't have a view of the ears that I did...
We were having a conversation literally trying to decide if we wanted to take this "feral cat" and ruin the chances at the fox returning...
Feral cats are serious pests around these parts, we were going to do the quail population a favor...
At 40 feet a full choke with #1 Buck put her down and when we walked over to her we saw this lying dead...
An absolutely beautiful kitty..
The pics don't do her justice as she had serious spots all over her all the way down to her paws...
Here is the grinning hunter while the lowly caller and lightman is behind the camera....
By the way I won't say how many times the grinning hunter shot at coons tonight without ever putting one in the truck...
John got his first coyote this year and now his first cat. AllI need to do is get him a fox now but they seem to be hard to come by over here in the deep woods...
