    This guy was weighed by Fish and Game before customer brought him to me.
    Tipped the scale at just over 200lbs! What a toad. Gonna be a fun one to mount.

    If you like pork, it's good ;) Mountain lion backstraps on the barbe; yummy!

    cattrax Beats being in the shop!

    Montana's a funny place with the mentality of people. West of Billings that cat's a game animal. East and it's a predator and varmint, no better than a coyote; and you don't eat coyotes. Shawn's right. You could substitute lion meat in many pork recipes and never tell the difference. You can't tell people that here though. Nice cat Shawn! Do him good!

    Does hanging them with a wire around the neck like that cause issues like it does for deer, or since the hair is different doesn't it matter? As a taxidermist I cringe seeing animals with ropes around their neck!

    There's no rope around his neck; it's around his chest. Hung him up for the pic is all ;)
