No, but it's about the purtiest bobcat coat I've ever seen around here. Most of our kitties are more muted tones of gray and brown with very non-distinct markings. This one's black just pops.

It is a beautiful pelt. Too bad it's so late in the year - the fur will be pretty thin - but it will sure look great if you have the hide tanned. That white belly is what the fur buyers look for. Good on ya!!!:cool:

It`s not gonna be prime this time of the year, and the pelt might be "blue", but due to the coloration, it would be worth it to tan it. I would case it and see how it turns out.

If you want a hair on deer skin, now till early September is the time to save one. Summer coat has more hair than a winter coat, and is solid, so it won`t be as brittle.

When I first saw the thread title, I thought it said "Will this make a good pet?" I was gonna say no, because it's dead. :)

That's all relative to what you are looking for in a pet...

Free cat to good home...(joking).
But kudos to you for wanting better than a roadside memorial...(seriously).

Bobcats are one critter I just dont see very often in the woods. I've seen several cross the road. I did get to watch one clean itself just like a big housecat for a very long time on Coopers Creek. That was a cool day.
