I shot a fairly large bobcat this weekend. Have been trying for one for years & something always happened . But not this weekend, setting way up on a mesa w/Ar10 and 160 yard shot. She is my first Bobcat , and will be a life-sized mount Took her to Rust Taxidermy in Cisco Tx, Taxi said she was a exceptionally large female & should make a nice mount. Base price is $700 plus any fancy base. He said skin will be sent out next week for tanning and he will get it back in 90days. I have until that time to decide on how I want her mounted. SO can the forum members post pics of there mounts or ideas with links to pictures.

Thanks Hetman(aka Steve)

I have 2 mounted and my favorite one is an open mouth rug

I also like mounts where the belly spots are more visible

A buddy and I shot two in south Texas a few years back. I had mine mounted with her creeping up on a quail in some short grass. My buddy mounted his where it was almost jumping straight up with a quail on its paw. Both mounts came out pretty good. When I get back to the farm in a couple of days, I'll send you a pic.

Gotta do the quail-leap thing. Although, if I'm lucky enough to ever shoot a good one, I'll probably do an open-mouth rug 'cause that's what my grandfather had.

I saw a sofa table mount (longer and narrow) that had a bobcat just behind a jackrabbit (both running) that was really awesome looking.... 2cents
