Why??? Bob do you do this every year?? Why?? Do you think you are helping?? You're not! You use the fur market to set everyone Else's price except yours. I'm sure I'm going out on a limb here, Bob, but if there is one mammal I know better than you, it is bobcats. I have handled cats from everywhere for many, many years and unlike canines, cats make GREAT mounts with shorter FUR. If you want to help, just sell your things here for what YOU can get and please don't cut down others. They work for theirs just as hard as you do and you might want to show your fellow trappers and taxidermists some respect. Your jealousy shows though a lot when others make a good sale. Remember, just like I said in 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, and now 09, it is NOT the bobcat that makes the mount but the TAXIDERMIST. Maybe you will learn something this year so in 2010 we won't be doing this again. I won't be holding my breath though.
