    Wisconsin hunter Dave Arendt has killed one huge bobcat that has surpassed the state record and may be the largest bobcat ever taken.
    “I had been chasing a big one up in Marinette County that was the biggest paw print I had ever seen,” Arendt said. “This was just a chance occurrence.”
    The cat’s track was already 18 hours old when Arendt, on a hunt organized by Andy Dryja, found it. It measured 3 1/2 inches and the stride was huge, Arendt said, comparable to a small cougar.
    The bobcat led the hunters on a lengthy chase, complicated by crossing trails with other cats and a coyote. Eventually, the group came close enough to their quarry to release the trailing hounds.
    The animal was treed and dispatched shortly thereafter.
    A male, the 52-pound bobcat eclipsed the Wisconsin verified record of a 48.84 pound cat killed in Marinette County in 1984.
    In comparison, the largest verified cat taken in Minnesota weighed 38.72 pounds.
    “One over 40 pounds is the rare thing,” Arendt said. “Bobcat hunters are always looking for those.”
    To date, no record of a verified cat that is larger has been found across <input name="IL_MARKER" type="hidden">North America, meaning that the bobcat might find immortality in the record books.
    Arendt said the cat has already been placed on the Wisconsin record list, but it will take more studies before it is certified as a national record animal.

    Well we all have a right to our opinions. That's one of the things that makes this nation great. Lawful Sport Hunting has done more for Conservation and the abundance of game animals through out this Great Nation. Tree huggers do little except spout B.S. and wring their hands, and weep for bambi. In case you haven't got it yet..... I DISAGREE WITH YOU !!! But then, that is my opinion and my right. Have a great life in California !

    ummm, tell that to the folks who live in places like the Sierra Nevada mountains in California. I was out there several years ago and due to a ban on hunting these magnificient creatures, the population had exploded and they were starving and coming into the populated areas and attacking people, killing pets and had even killed some small children.

    Responsible animal management is the duty of man. It is a moral duty and there is nothing inhumane about it. Deer hunting prevents overpopulation and starvation. Wolf culling prevents the same thing and protects ranchers from losing their livelyhoods.

    Sad that many people just don't get it. Emotional bleeding heart measures that ban hunting, fishing, or population control only results in unintended consequenses that are cruel and inhumane to the animals that they are intended to protect.
    Responsible, humane conservation is our duty and responsibility. Protecting our wonderful wildlife from enviro wacko's like PETA.
