Kentucky Fish and Wildlife program coordinator Steven Dobey said officers had to shoot the mountain lion because they didn't have tranquilizers with them.
I would consider it their job to have tools like that on hand at all times. Poor excuse for killing that anima[/quote]

Attend a state or world taxidermy competition and you'll see plenty of bobcat mounts that are not only "good", but fantastic. Reference, reference, reference. Can't say enough about having proper reference materials, pictures, etc. Too many bobcat mounts don't have the correct nose to eye proporti...

I think, best I can remember, this process also involves utilizing wood ash for the necessary alkaline and burying the hide as well? Years ago a buddy of mine tried brain t...

I can't tell if the deer are less in numbers everywhere else, but they sure are plentiful here. Plentiful enough that driving down our road is like driving a gauntlet.
