Default Bobcat is finished

Just got my bobcat back from the taxi. I will have to say I think they hit it out of the park. Was a little nervous how it was going to turn out with all the horror stories you see, but I am stoked at how it turned out.

Now thatís a good looking mount, it only took one look. The face/expression just speaks natural to me. The taxi did a great job on it.

Like I said it only took one look to tell me itís a great mount. With cats especially you get that ďwhatís wrong with this thingĒ thought when you see an unnatural mount.

Man that’s a great cat mount! That joker looks like he is laying there alive. Usually their facial expressions look like a cartoon character...this one looks natural.

Thank you everyone for the kind words. I am very happy with it. If you have one to get mounted in NTX look at True Life Taxidermy in Grandbury.
