    So a good customer of mine calls and says he has a big bobcat and wants to get it mounted. He comes in and we start going over some pictures. He says he wants something unique and wants me to take my time he is in no hurry. I throw out some ideas and still nothing grabs him. Then he looks over on my desk and sees the Breakthrough-issue 85 with Phil Soucy's cougar on the cover that he won with at the 2006 NTA. He says "I want it like that but hang on the wall"
    Well here it is. I am no cat expert like Phil but it was fun and turned out pretty nice. This was one of the biggest bobcats that I have had the privilege of working on so there were alot of alterations but like I said, it was alot of fun doing it. He picked it up the other day and loved it. Couldn't wipe the smile off of his face. Anyway thanks for looking and thanks Ken for this site.
