In a word.....WOW! Jim Kelly is an absolute wizard. This thing is a masterpiece. The attention to detail is world class. I still can't believe that this is my cat.

Awesome!

Boy he nailed it! Beautiful mount

17-May-21
beautiful mount and probably the best pose on a cat mount i have seen.

From: woodguy65
17-May-21
I usually don't like to see predators in an aggressive pose - especially bears. However, that is beautiful, absolutely awesome! Very cool pose!

From: hdaman
17-May-21
Wow, what an incredible work of art. Congrats!

17-May-21
That is the best looking lion mount I’ve ever seen. Cats are really hard to get right.

From: beemann
17-May-21
Thats impressive. Congrats.

From: T Mac
17-May-21
Wow awesome mount!

17-May-21
Awesome mount!!!!

From: elkmtngear
17-May-21
Great pose, top shelf work!

From: Pop-r
17-May-21
What's something like that cost?

From: Overland
17-May-21
I imagine this thread will bring quite a lot of business to Jim Kelly. That mount is simply fantastic, on one of the toughest critters to get "right."

17-May-21
That’s a great looking mount. Congrats

From: BowJangles
17-May-21
@Pop-r it was $5,500. @Overland aside from the fact that Jim does exceptional work (I'll never have anyone other than Jim mount my animals) he's also a damn good dude. After a handful of interactions it was like talking to an old friend.

17-May-21
WOW.. What an amazing mount.. Congrats

17-May-21
Like others have said... it’s hard to get cats “right”. It’s usually the eyes (distance and appearance), that looks great!

From: t-roy
17-May-21
WOW!! The entire mount is awesome, but the facial features on your cat, are incredible! Can’t wait to see what the mountain goat looks like, when he gets it done! ;-)

Congrats again, Eric!

From: Bou'bound

Great result.

From: JohnMC
17-May-21
Looks great

17-May-21
The rock is even amazing

From: sitO
17-May-21
It's perfect. The outstretched paw, the "snarl", the position of the tail, excellent.

From: Rob in VT
17-May-21
Great looking face! They are so hard to do and many can’t master it.

From: Scoot
17-May-21
Outstanding!

17-May-21
VERY IMPRESSIVE

From: bowhunter24

Beautiful taxidermy work. Congrats on a nice mount.

From: Shug

No one better in the world than Jim... guys as good none better. I was there today scoring an antelope he had there... He spoke highly of you

From: BowJangles
17-May-21
@shug, I saw one set when I was there that really stood out. There were two on the table. One looked BIG! Was that the set you scored by chance?

From: Rupe
18-May-21
Wow is right. That’s a beautiful mount.

From: Shug
18-May-21
Most likely Eric... it was an 80” er

From: redquebec

HOLY COW! is that ever beautiful!

We've all seen the bobcat, mountain lion mounts that look fake, crooked and just weird. That close up of the face with eyes glowing might be the best taxidermy picture I've ever seen. Congratulations on a successful hunt and especially on a successful mount!

18-May-21
Nice!!!!

From: drycreek
18-May-21

Absolutely incredible!

From: CJE

WOW, thats amazing. Probably one of the best I've ever seen. Congrats on an incredible animal.

From: Chuckster
19-May-21
Beautiful cat and incredible mount. On that last close up pic, he even has a couple of saliva drops on a couple wiskers. That's attention to detail.

From: BowJangles
19-May-21
@Chuckster I almost dropped my phone when I saw that for the first time! Just incredible attention to detail. The crazy thing about this mount is that the pics do it zero justice. I can't walk by it without marveling over it.

Bad Ass Mount

Amazing!!! Had you not told us...I would have guessed at LEAST 8 grand! The man definitely has mad talent!!

From: White Falcon

Best mount I have seen.

From: Bou'bound
22-May-21
That mount is the epitome of a pissed Puddy

From: Altizer
24-May-21
That is an amazing job on the face. Probably the best eyes I’ve ever seen on a mount. I have actually been within a few of two lions when they snarled/ hissed where they open their mouth wide like that and expelled air. That mount is perfect. Awesome, awesome job!

From: Slate
25-May-21
Beautiful. Jim sent me that picture last night. He is doing my Brown Bear.

From: BowJangles
25-May-21
Jim just sent pics. That thing is an absolute dinosaur!! Congrats man. That mount is going to be impressive. Please keep us updated!

25-May-21
Eric, Is he entering it into any competitions

From: BowJangles
25-May-21
I'm not sure. He did have the professional pics made so it may be a possibility.

From: Gmoney
26-May-21
Wow, I am so happy to see all of this positive feedback about my dad's work! He worked so hard on this mountain lion and I'm glad to see that everyone likes it!

From: Jasper
26-May-21
Off the charts!!! Congratulations
