Shot this bobcat the other day big tom with a unique coat pattern, probably 5 feet long stretched out (back paw to front paw).

I’m looking for a some one that does good bobcats. If y’all have had any done or suggestion any taxidermists let me see pics of there work and the name of the shop.

Thanks! cowboy

His name is Jerry Huffaker, located in Abilene, you can PM him on here or he has a Facebook page, or Huffakertaxidermy.com. Go back a few pages in the Taxidermy section and he's posted some pics of cats he's done.

I took a big tom (48#) about 10 or so years ago, did a lot of searching around my area to finalize on Billington Ranch Taxidermy located near Andice (NW from Georgetown). Does a very good job on cats. Most mounted cats eyes just don't look right to me, Evelyn Billington did a wonderful job on mine. I will try to remember to take a picture when I am at home.

Honestly, I'm glad that you got a good one from them, one of my most disappointing bobcat mounts came from Billington. I think they were the hype on here around that time and I fell for some of the better pics that were posted on here. Maybe it's just me but when I spend $1K on mount and wall pedestal I expect a little more than this. This was a full bodied Webb Co bobcat, came back looking like it hadn't eaten for a month, bald spots and also a base that separated from the plywood backing.

Looks like double nickel does nice work judging from the website. I’d stay clear of god’s creation, check out the reviews on him about 4 topics down on this taxidermy page.

Chuck Denson is an artist. Does a great job on cats. Does this full time so its not a side gig for him.

HufTax would be my vote. His cats are the most consistent quality-wise that I have seen...

Another vote for him. I've never seen cats better than his.
