it was 20 yards a way it wasent a hunter cause i could see it enough to tell it was a kind of cat or coyote and if it was someones dog it shouldnt of been 5 miles away form civilization up in the mountins on posted land and if it was then it would of been dead and there is a legal season up here so yea

It was probably not tanned, and it is not called stuffed, the term in taxidermy is mounted.

Not much you can do now if it already slipping hairs.

And you do have to see what your shooting at, it is the first rule of safe hunting.

Just tell me what area you hunt and I'll make sure I never hunt there,LOL

Good luck

Better start looking more closely before you shoot next time could be someone lost with brown shirt on, and a bobcat is a long way from a eight point.
