Never hunted cats but if it were me, knowing these guys are known to have lost some of the fear of humans, I’d carry a levergun, 30-30 minimum caliber. Larger dia bullets would be preferred, like 38-55/375 Win or 45-70. If it were sport it would be different, but I’d take my tip from the guides in Africa, and go big or go home.

Me personally, I’d take my Marlin 1895 45-75 stoked with 300gr loads running about 2000fps.
