1st Bobcat

Postby mowen » Tue Dec 03, 2019 4:04 pm

Long story short.. Heard some chasing behind some pines, but nothing came out. Thought is was for sure a Buck chasing a doe. Few min later a rabbit ran down the hill and a coyote ( I thought) came behind. I then thought it was a fawn, but walked way to smooth. Honestly missed first shot, but it only took a few steps and was looking around. Took second shot and it looked like it did a back flip, then cha cha. Was an awesome time and a crazy feeling of emotions. Gonna get it mounted for sure.

Do yourself a favor and ask to see bobcat work from a few diff taxis. A lot of them simply can’t pull off a bobcat mount that looks real. Too many horror stories out there.

Congrats on the cat!

You were lucky to get a 2nd shot. In my experience bobcats don't take any chances. If anything seems off they evacuate with the quickness.

SpurHunter- that’s awesome that you have had multiple experiences with Bobcats. This is the first I’ve ever seen. I actually read on this while out there because I found fur, blood and stomach lining, but no cat. Read articles and forums on that if you miss be ready for second shot. Me and buddy laughed after reading it multiple times. Sorry that you don’t believe me or questioning how it went. I have a 20 min video of my buddy trying to pick it up if you would like to see that. That’s a funny video because we were scared of it. Happy Hunting

I hunt a place that is loaded with them. My brother and myself have killed 14 or 15 over the years. We see several every year.
They are for sure cool animals.

Finding a taxidermist to do a quality mount is tough. I would do plenty of research before I got someone to mount it.

I prefer a "wallking" mount with a quail in the bobcat's mouth.

Congrats on a nice big bobcat!
I remember seeing one mounted by a lady that I think has a shop in Putnam county. Can't remember the name but she does real good work

I did some searching and found a nature's legacy taxidermy in Bolivar TN. On their Twitter page they had a picture of a real nice looking bobcat mount.

I had a walking shot at one right after the bobcat season opened. Could not stop him, so I held off. I really want a pelt and skull! I am also interested to see how they taste. Anyone on here ever eaten one?

You are thinking of Rachel Butchett at highland rim wildlife studio.
I haven’t had anything done by her, but I’ve been impressed with her work.
