9mm lwc should suffice for a treed, 150 lb or less animal. I've heard that guys favor 22 mags for this job, because a lung hit will just make the cat 'hang" in the tree, until it falls out dead, thus saving the dogs a potentially damaging fight with the cat.

Calling is definately the way to go. (my favorite kind of hunting, where you are being hunted by the animal you're going to harvest.)

You have to call a little longer for cats than you do for coyotes though. And cats are very keen to movement. Good camo is a must.

:devil:
