I know it's difficult to tell , but do you think it's a kitten or fully grown ? To me it looks like a young one.

Secondly , is the fur of a "rosetta" bobcat more valuable than the bright white bellys / spotted bobcats that come from the western states ? I remember seeing western bobcat pelts reaching $1000.00. Are "rosetta" bobcats considered rare ?


I have no interest is selling any bobcat that I might be lucky enough to catch this year. I would however , like to have a full body mount done .

Cats are valued on the belly.

I can't tell the age of that cat.

Thanks for the encouragement. The trapping season in New York doesn't open until October 25th. Unfortunately , the bow hunters will be out there October 1st. I realize many bobcats are taken during the various deer seasons. That's okay because I'm a deer hunter too. Would the bobcat fur be prime (enough) in October or should I wait until Jan/Feb like I did last year ? Thanks for your input.

Thanks Hal.

Would you wait until Jan/Feb or trap them or as soon as the season opens ? (October 25th in New York).

Gman around hear are cats don't really get prime until around Christmas but if your gonna mount him I wouldn't let that hold me back, if your on hot sign catch him if your not gonna sale, as a 3/4 time taxidermist I can tell ya even summer cats make good mounts! I mount and sell mine cause it feels good to net 500 bucks on a dingy plane colored ky cat!
