My guess is that he didn't take it down, he attacked the deer while it was bedding down.
Once the bobcat bites onto the throat they hold on with vice-grip like pressure until they suffocate the deer,
Sometimes the bite causes the deer to drown in it's own blood.
Wouldn't be much for eatin' but he would make a nice addition on the wall. I try to take out as many bobcats on our lease as possible. I also let some trappers in during the off season for nuisance control.
