He just started it yesterday. I'll post pics as it moves along and he forwards them to me. The kid has some serious talent. Here's the cat the day I caught it for comparison purposes..

I'm no expert but that is the best bobcat face I've seen in a long time. The eyes are perfect.

I'm glad you guys like it. The taxidermist is just a young fellow, I don't know if he's thirty, but he sure found his calling.

Looks awesome.How did he get the head to look that great in just one day.Where are all the pins that hold it untill it`s dried?I`m no taxidermist so I have no idea how long it should take,I just thought it took longer.If I could get a cat mounted and have it look like that I would probably get one done.
