Bobcat Challenge..Check the list for your username!

Discussion in 'Lifesize Mammals' started by code6202, Dec 2, 2009.

  1. Because we haven't had a challenge in such a long time, and I always wanted to host a challenge.


    The Rules:

    One bobcat mount, any pose, any type of base.
    Three photos allowed per entry. Pictures should be at least 300 pixels on the smallest side.
    Pics must be taken OUTSIDE (no fancy backdrops!).
    Entries must be PM'd by February 28, 2010.
    NO old mounts. It must be a mount finished between now and the end date.

    This is a "Taxidermists' Choice" challenge, therefore the winner will be decided by a poll. The mounter of each cat will remain anonymous until the voting is over. So when you finish your cat and take the 3 photos, you can PM or Email them to me ([email protected]) by Feb 28, and I will post each group of photos with a number on a poll thread. If you send them in an email, be sure to include your taxinet user name, and put "bobcat challenge" in the subject so I know who it's from.


    The prize:

    An awesomely special award plaque!


    If you would like to participate in this challenge, please say so on this thread.

    I may be able to pull something off...The Feb date would work best for me...That`ll be right before the KS show and I haven`t competed in 3 years so maybe i`ll throw something together...I`ll speak for WA--he`s in...he`ll just be confused on which cat he`ll be wanting to put in the comp...His Christmas cats should be comming out on Ebay soon if not already...rake it in Wayne--rake it in...

    I'm in for sure. Sounds like fun. Sorry to hear wa won't be playing, but at least we get the next best thing...LTravis. :) Dates really don't make much difference to me. Jan 31 and Feb 28 are both good dates, or split the difference with Feb 15th. Just let me know and I'll get started.


    I'm calling somebody out though...AndyO, where you at? Time for you to come out of your challenge retirement!!!
     
  14. Re: Bobcat Challenge.. Anyone interested?

    Cool beans to all ! We'll make the date 2/28, since it looks like a few of the peoples need the extra time. If you get your kit kats done long before then, you can just send the pic early, or save it until we get closer to the end.

    RDA since the last challenge had fox drama because some were red and some were black, I do not think a lynx would make a good entry for this bobcat challenge. It can be any subspecies of bobcat, preferably an adult cat, from texas or the rocky mountains or big fluffy western or smaller eastern, from the redwood forests or the gulf stream waters, as long as it's first name is Bob and last name is Cat.

    I updated the rulez list on top with the date and a picture size, since tiny pictures drive me batty.

    I am a beginner who has never mounted a bobcat, but I have one in the freezer right now and would love the challenge. Sounds like fun.

    I have a cat in the freezer I need to mount up and I think I can work it in between now and February so count me in too. This will be motivation! On a another note, I wouldn't have a problem with RDA's "yankee" bobcat, there's about as much difference in between our Texas cats and the northern/rocky mountain bobcats as there are with a Lynx. Just my thoughts...
