Default Bobcat & Bachman Fox Squirrel Mount

I got my bobcat and Bachmanís fox squirrel mount back from taxidermist yesterday and I'm very happy with the work! Through a lot of research on taxidermist work and mounts Iíve seen before, I found it hard to find a taxidermist that does great work on bobcats and squirrels in particular. Well I happened to find Atchafalaya Taxidermy LLC in St. Martinville ran by Jacob Degeyter. Iím OCD and all the little details matter to me and Jake is the kind of taxidermist that really focuses on the smallest of details. I was blessed with the opportunity to see 4 bobcats this season while deer hunting but decided to take the 4th one while me and my buddies were on our annual deer hunt on Richard K. Yancey WMA. The squirrel is a Bachmanís fox squirrel only native to the Florida parishes in Louisiana. I was blessed with the opportunity to harvest it here behind the house on our farm in Zachary. My squirrel weighed 2lbs and they can get up to 3lbs-5lbs. I had Jake add the snow to the log because it had been snowing during the January primitive either sex week on Yancey. Big thanks to Jake and if you have a chance go visit his shop, amazing work and great guy!

Your mounts are good looking.

I am impressed with your Bachman knowledge.

I grew up in the Fla Parishes and have been aware of them since the 1980's.
I too have a 1984 Bachman mount. Got him with my Sears Roebuck 410 single shot.

And i was chewing apple jack at that time.

Thanks, it's the same mount but just a few pictures from different angles. I first saw these Bachman's fox squirrel here on the farm last year when we bought the place and noticed how big they were so I did some research on them. We have a good size population on my property and surrounding property which consists of pasture and bottomland hardwoods. We don't have any pine around here but the Bachman's are found here in the habitat just like I researched where they like to hang out around mixed pasture & light wooded areas. My buddies property in St. Francisville has both Red species & black species Bachman's fox squirrel.
