Looks like a nice mount to me. I noticed the eyes right away but thatís what seems to get screwed up on cat mounts a lot. I think if the cat was focused on some prey, thatís what his eyes might look like and might be what the taxi was trying to capture. Stick a grouse or rabbit in his line of sight and you might have something there, Lol, but would really need a better shot at his face straight on to make that call. I had one cat done and it was worse than that one, thatís for sure.

Not nearly as good as some of Uncle Fester's mounts.

I think the overall mount looks real good but from that angle the eyes look a little crossed to me. I different angle might show otherwise.


I'm just happy to be here! Today I'm as young as I'll ever be and and older than I've ever been before!

Is it just me, but it doesnít look like he is putting any weight on his back feet. Back legs look off to me.

garbage. Wasted a good pelt. Take the 800 and add what the pelt would have brought that's your investment.

I'd never mount a bobcat. Very few ever look good. In my opinion, a tanned cat hide looks much better and a lot more friendly on my pocket book.
