Those of you who trap bobcats might want to consider freezing your cats whole. I went to the fur auction on saturday and whole frozen bobcats went for 60 bucks a piece. Just a thought.

Thus far this season I have tanned 3 bobcat hides for deer hunting friends. They shot them and had intended on throwing them away due to the large exit wounds. I sewed the hides up using sinew from the deer backstraps and once sewn, tanned and "broken" you could not even tell there had been a large hole in any of the hides. I now have two tanned otter hides (with feet intact) in my shop, one coyote hide that is drying and one cat hide in the solution. I have two more cat hides in the freezer....when I skin a cat to tan it's hide, I leave the claws on it ... otter too. I must admit, these two otter are retaining their unique "fishy" smell longer than most!

Preacher-

Here is one of the cats that was shot with a deer rifle. Once finished and turned....hardly a sign of the tear.
