    ordered one of the Hendricks bobcat forms and am in the mounting process... skin is very loose in the belly and hind quarters areas.... how can I add some girth to these areas.... I have already sewn the ventral incision up... ?

    Bobcats are known to over stretch in those areas. Hide paste and taxi skin

    If you have to add girth, cut from head/neck juncture to the vent horizontally down the side. Add 1/2 of your girth. Now cut the same length down the back and add the other 1/2 of your girth.

    Don't overdo it. The skin will shrink as it dries. You want it to be loose, it makes the fur more dense when the skin contracts.
