Default East Texas Bobcat

My FIL, Tim, got his bobcat back today and I’ll have to say it’s one of the best I’ve seen. We were blessed to get on an east Texas lease with Mike, hogslayer78, and it’s been a blast ever since. Tim has hunted for 50 years but never had a chance at a bobcat, until now. It’s nice to see an old guy knock one off his bucket list and I’m glad the mount turned out awesome. Thought I’d share a few pics. Mount was done by David Majors in Cypress, Majors Creations.

He sure got the eyes right it seems. That’s the part that makes a great mount. That’s a nice looking cat.

Well I never comment on bobcat mounts because they all suck. This one however is really nice. I think he nailed the facial features of a cat carrying a squirrel. Congrats on a fine mount.

Since there always has to be a negative comment on a mount... I will go ahead. I don't like that it isn't hanging on my wall!!!! Great mount. Congrats to your FIL

Probably one of the best I have ever seen. Did he call it in, or did it just come strolling by? On my East,Tx bucket list as well.
