For quite a while I've had this idea for a mount, and decided to finally implement it in this competition peice. It depicts a bobcat in the moment just before it steps into a trap. I personally like it, but when the rest of my family saw it this morning, I didn't get very positive reactions on it--my sister thought it was "sad" and my mom thought it was "nasty". So my question is, would this be too controversial at a competition? I am hoping not, since this will be one of my more unique habitats when finished. The trap was donated to me by Marc Romine, who sells lots of nice pelts on here, and I also got the bobcat's skin from him. I'd love to be able to use them both in the same display, but if it is going to disturb as many people as it did this morning, even unfinished as it is, I'm wondering if I should rethink it? Here is the picture of the unfinished piece. Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.
