Preserved the bobcat
#1
After recently harvesting my first bobcat, the 'taxidermy fund' was empty so I chose to not have it mounted.  Not wanting to waste it, I tanned the hide myself (which I have never tried before) and did a euromount on the skull (with it biting down on the cartridge case from the shot that killed it) and also saved the claws.  

I temporarily put the skull and claws on a 2x4, but plan to eventually put it on an attractive wooden plaque instead.  As for the hide, with no body inside to give it shape, it looks a bit wonky.  I plan to hang it on a nail in the garage among my antlers, deer euromounts, turkey beards & spurs, and fox and coyote tails for visiting friends to see.

You did a pretty nice job on that considering you never did that before. Those things are pretty rare if you don't trap, at least in my neck of the woods. I killed one with the bow and had a full body mount. Did you weigh it?
