Thread: Bobcat Full body mount price?

  1. #26
    Thanks for the kind words guys, and Olgord, I would agree about Lonny. He does nice work with cats. There is room in the industry for all levels of ability, and honestly if someone can't tell the difference between a $300 cat and a $700 cat then it would be silly for them to spend more than $300. As long as you are happy with the work you had done, then that is all that matters.

    MOC, just thought I'd give you a heads up...your cat is mounted and drying. I'll post a preview pic of it on here for you Monday, and I'll call you when it's dry, finished, and ready for pickup.

    Sounds good, looking forward to it. Turn out OK even with the cosmetic surgery I gave to that cat's face?

    MOC, here is the preview of your kitty that I'd promised. The volleyball sized hole in the side of his head repaired quite nicely. It should by dry and ready in another week or so, I'll give you a call.

    Thanks, your compliments mean a lot. Cats seem to give a lot of taxidermists trouble. They are difficult to do, no question about that. Paying more obviously doesn't mean getting more, but at the same time going cheap almost always means lower quality. I meant what I said earlier though, if you can't tell the difference between a $250 cat and a $700 cat, it would make no sense to pay more. Some people can tell a difference however, and that keeps me pretty busy. Here is one I did a while back. I need to take more pics, but it seems I'm always too busy to get any pictures before they go out the door.

    Don't worry, I am. I don't even have it yet and I'm very, very happy. I don't know anything about him beating 16 other cats with this work, but I wouldn't doubt it. Dude is good.

    Yeah MOC, I entered your cat in the second annual "Bobcat Challenge" on a taxidermy website, and it was voted on by members of the site.

    sawtoothscream, yes I do coyotes as well.

    The short answer to that question would be no, not all of them.

    When it comes to price thats not the most important thing but when it comes to a bidding war on price they are fools and if they have confidence in thier work they would charge what its worth if they dont I would say its not good most states have a state competion for taxidermy if they have never had a big enough set to go do it and win a ribbon then they are not putting enough into thier work or anyone elses. You want to see good work go to one and walk around and look you will see the diff. By the way Cole nice job.

    Some of the best in the world don't compete.

    Cole are you talking abought just the pedistal or Bobcat pedistal mounted ?
    I want to have a Bobcat done .
    I,ve only seen one while hunting a couple years ago .
    I may just buy one on Taxi net . and have it mounted ?
    I realize most States you need to be a licensed taxidermy to purchase .
    How would it work if Iwanted to pay and have it sent to a taxidermist ?
    Sorry to high jack your thread ....

    I have a bobcat pedestal mounted right now that I would sell. I also keep plenty of stock bobcats for those that want one mounted but don't have the cat. I purchase the cats, then sell them after they are mounted so no legal problems. (You would have to check with your state on the legalities of purchasing a bobcat mount, but most all allow it) You could also purchase a cat, and have it shipped to me for mounting, but in some states that is not legal. (My home state of MO for example requires a fur trader license to buy furbearers.)
