I never seen a ugly bobcat. I have seen some real ugly taxidermy cats. Choose carefully.

I think that's a pretty cat, better coloration than the one I had mounted. You can have it tanned and display it that way, do a rug or go life size. No wrong answer there.

This is good advice. That way you still have options. Mount it or sell it.

Not sure where at in nebraska you are, im in the south east corner, I personally would wait and mount a different cat. Ive been trapping for 9 years now and have caught quite a few cats, there has been 3 that I wish i would have kept. Most of them are smaller females with rabbit backs. But If you hold out, you will catch a nice tom with nice big spots and rossetts down the back. There out there. They are. I Have a buddy that has caught some real nice toms the last couple years. If you are wanting a nice big pretty tom, keep waiting. But, in the end, your the one that has to be happy about it and if you want to mount that one, go right ahead. If your happy with it, who cares. Thats all that matters. Im not saying your cat isnt pretty, because it is, they all are, but I know we do have better ones around here if your willing to wait.

If you are considering taxidermists, you might call Jacot Taxidermy in Verdigre, NE. He is a young fella, but he has won numerous awards for his work. Great young man, also. Justin Jacot is his name.

If you donít mount it sell it to someone that will, but personally I would mount it for my own pleasure

Thatís a beautiful cat

I think it needs a couple more years to reach it's full potential.

The cat is definitely worthy to be mounted I would recommend asking your taxidermist to use Hendricks small game system forms the take alot of the problems out of making a cat look anatomically correct. Mckenzie Taxi Supply carries them as do a few others.

Hope this helps.

Pretty cat, and itís your call bud.

Heís prettier than the cat I have mounted! But it was my first, and good story to boot.

Definitely do your homework and find a good taxi. Hard to duplicate that cat face.

Taxidermy is a personal choice.

You'll not get the same perspective from any of us. Are there better NE cats. Sure. Are there worse NE cats. Sure.
It's not really about mounting the "best" cats as much as do you want to mount this one?
Taxidermy is one critter at a time.

Nice bobbie.
Blessings,
Mark
